I was first hired to sell life insurance by Prudential in 1971 in Montgomery, Alabama. I later went to work selling life insurance door to door for Pan American Life in 1973 in Tallahassee, Florida. After several years working in management for Morrison’s cafeterias, I went to work running a debit for Liberty National in 1977. In 1984, I went to work for United Family Life, working with their information technology department, working with claims and investments.

I started my own information technology consulting company (Effective Business Solutions) in 1991, consulting with fortune 500 companies. These companies include Coca Cola USA, AT&T, Philip Morris, American Express, Target, KPMG and PriceWaterhouse, specializing in financial areas of HR, Payroll, Taxes and Retirement Plans.

In 2001, I stopped traveling to join my wife’s CPA firm, Barcom Financial and Accounting Services, PC. Together we are able to provide a full range of financial services and small business consulting. Susan handles accounting, taxes, the IRS and securities. I worked with securities, retirement planning, and technologies. I also work with our clients as a business management consultant to help them grow their businesses, hire and train new employees, devise marketing plans and establish good accounting and sales tracking systems.

In 2008 I partnered with ProEquities, Inc. With a wide array of options available, I can tailor investment solutions that put you on the path to achieving your specific goals. Achieving Your Goals is Our Business.
