About Daniel J. Brown

"Helping clients achieve their financial goals has been my most satisfying professional experience."

Daniel J. Brown, CPA
Dan Brown founded his CPA firm in 1986.

Previously, Dan worked for a large, national accounting firm, and was also the controller of a subsidiary of a NYSE listed company. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the National Society of Accountants, and the National Association of Tax Professionals.

Dan received his bachelor's and master's degrees from The Ohio State University. While at OSU, he was inducted into Beta Alpha Psi, the national accounting fraternity. As a graduate student, he taught economics and worked at a Washington, D.C. policy institute during the summers. He also attended the Institute of Business Economics and Management at the University of Southern California.

Dan established his CPA firm in Oak Park, where it quickly became a fixture in the community, providing tax and accounting services. In 2009, he moved his firm nearer to where he lives and limited his services to those that are tax related.

Active in his church as chairman of the finance committee and of the endowment fund, Dan served several years on the board of directors of Bethesda Home and Retirement Center, heading its finance committee. He enjoys racquetball and bicycling and has taken many cycling vacations, most recently to the Loire Valley of France, the Sonora Desert in Arizona, and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. He can often be found on the Prairie Path and the Salt Creek Trail.
