An Inside Look at Tanner LLC For Aspiring Accountants

Professionals from Tanner LLC took part in the inaugural podcast for the University of Utah’s Beta Alpha Psi – an honor organization that promotes the study and practice of accounting, finance, and information systems.

Tax Partner Garrett Koerner and Audit Manager Ali Spaulding answered questions on a variety of topics, including their paths that led to Tanner LLC, the firm’s service offerings, and the firm’s purpose to Help Best-In-Class Teams Realize Their Full Value.
