David R. Hiatt, CPA / CGMA

Tax Partner


Since 1977, David Hiat has been helping his clients detect solutions to solve their accounting problems. He believes that “an accountant is a great detective. You never start with all the facts, and you need to be open to the undiscovered solution. At the end of a successful day, I have followed my favorite fictional hero Sherlock Holmes’ sage advice more than once; 'when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth' and then I have my client’s answer.”

David has served most of his forty year career within public accounting and taxation, gaining extensive experience with tax matters and business management consultation. He also has gleaned invaluable experience from his tenure as a Chief Financial Officer within the private industry.

When he’s away from the office, he enjoys power walking, spending time with family, and fast cars.
