Marcus Bowman


I began practicing as a CPA in 2004, starting out in public accounting in Indiana (2004-2008), then for my own firm in Ellensburg, Washington from 2008-2016.  My career has included significant experience in financial analysis and consulting for small businesses and their owners.  I began as a tax professional who did BizOps work when I wasn't doing taxes, but pivoted during my time at my own firm to focus on BizOps with a secondary focus on tax preparation and planning.  In December of 2016. I merged my firm into CLA to expose my clients to a broader base of resources than I could offer as a sole practitioner.  I've had the privilege of leading and supporting the BizOps team in our Central Washington office for four years, and now I'm excited to lead the BizOps charge in our new Nashville office!


Bachelor's in Accounting from Indiana University, graduated 2003.
