Carthage Accountant Andrew Jordan said he's always had a love for being a Public Accountant, even after taking a position four years ago as the chief financial officer for a 75-person Joplin company.
After a stint as president of that company, Jordan decided to return to his roots and he's opened Jordan CPA Services LLC from his office at 221 W. Fourth St. Suite 1B in Carthage.
“I’ve learned way more than I thought possible in the last four years or so, and I have worked with some amazing people, but part of me always still wanted to pursue Public Accounting,” Jordan said. “I missed getting to help clients directly, and I felt that the experience I have gained through eight years in Public Accounting and almost four years as the CFO and later President for a 75-person company could really benefit small businesses. So, for the last several months, Sarah and I have been quietly making preparations to start my firm.”
Working with accoountant Michelle Testerman, Jordan said his business specializes in providing CFO services for companies that don't have their own chief financial officer and taking on bookkeeping, payroll and accounting services so business owners can consentrate their efforts on growing their businesses.
He also helps with business and individual tax planning and preparation.

Background
Jordan said he has an undergraduate and Master’s degree in Accounting (Summa Cum Laude for both), and was a CPA for about 10 years. He taught tax at MSSU for two semesters and  spent almost 8 years in public accounting, then the last about four years as CFO (and President since January 2016) of PILR, LLC in Joplin. He served a three-year term on the Carthage Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, including serving as Treasurer. He has served on the board of Carthage Historic Preservation since January 2011 and helped start a mentoring program for young accountants through the Missouri Society of CPAs. He was the forwarding agent for missionaries in Africa for eight years.
