Brian Herrington is the founder and driving force behind Brian Herrington, CPA. Brian’s entrepreneurial spirit started at a young age; while in middle school, he started his first business on the bus to/ from school selling custom printed stickers to classmates. After having to close the sticker business down due to oppression from ‘the man’ Brian next ventured into the business of selling mixed tape CDs to classmates. These early entrepreneurial excursions taught Brian an appreciation for financial independence and stoked the coals of a lifelong desire to be self-employed.
Brian attended Southwest Texas State University and where he received his Bachelors of Business Administration and Masters of Accountancy degrees. After completing his education, Brian began his career in Houston, TX, where he worked as a Tax Staff professional preparing tax returns for businesses, individuals, trusts, estates, and non-profits. Upon determining that a change of scenery was necessary, Brian moved to Austin and began a four-year run as the Accounting & Finance Manager at a local law firm. In 2014, Brian decided to take the plunge and become his own boss again by opening his own accounting firm. The rest will be history.
While attending Southwest Texas State University, Brian met and fell in love with his wife Vanessa. They have been happily married for over five years. In 2014, they were blessed with their first child, a vibrant and beautiful baby girl. They had their second baby girl in November 2016 and Brian and Vanessa are expecting their third child, and first baby boy, in November 2018. In his free time, Brian enjoys all things related to baseball, reading, growing carnivorous plants, sampling new craft beers, recreational bicycling and swimming, and spending as much time as possible with his amazing wife and daughter (soon to be daughters).
