September Featured Employee: Dan Trudgeon


For the month of September, KerberRose is proud to showcase Dan Trudgeon as our featured employee. Dan is a staff accountant at our Shawano location and will celebrate two years with the Firm. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and Music Industry Management from Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan. Dan also received his CPA designation from the AICPA in 2019.

Dan works with local governments and non-profit organizations providing audit services and financial statement preparation. Dan brings positivity and a friendly smile to every client interaction. With years of experience working in customer service, Dan enjoys building new relationships and helping clients solve financial questions. His ability to work with a variety of customers and personality styles makes him a great addition to our team.

“We have many clients that rely on auditors for accounting help and knowledge. Spending extra time with clients to explain adjustments and providing guidance to their role in the accounting process definitely leads to stronger relationships with the clients we serve,” stated Dan.

Enjoying the work you do and clients you serve creates a pleasant work environment. Dan stated, “I enjoy my job because of the relationship I have created with my coworkers and the unique clients we serve. I like the social aspect of auditing, creating conversation, and meeting intriguing individuals while working with clients.”

The highlight of Dan’s career was completing his CPA exam prior to the 2019 tax season. Dan commented, “The CPA exam was a very daunting task since not all sections of the test directly relate to my work as an auditor. Passing the exam was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and is a large stepping stone to further my career. KerberRose allowed me to take time out of my day to study if I had a lighter work load. Other coworkers who were studying for the exam were also allowed time away from their daily workload. Working together, we could study and discuss the more difficult sections and any tips or tricks for studying.”

When Dan is not auditing and helping clients at KerberRose, he spends his time playing and watching volleyball and basketball; as well as reading, playing the piano, and watching Netflix for hours on end. Dan’s personal motto comes from JK Rowling in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
