Jeff’s Personal Mission Statement
“Providing timely, value-added service that exceeds client expectations is what drives our firm’s growth. In order to perpetuate great service, I am committed to the professional development and success of our team members. By strengthening our firm internally, we continue to provide leading edge service and maintain long-term client relationships, setting us apart from the competition.”
Jeff joined Watkins Uiberall, PLLC in 1990. As chief manager, he guides the strategic direction of the firm and effectively coordinates the Watkins Uiberall team to achieve the firm’s objectives. Jeff manages the firm’s day-to-day operations and focuses on enhancing and expanding client service, building a strong client base and developing internal resources. In his leadership role, Jeff’s ultimate objective is to provide the tools for both team members and clients to realize their goals through the firm.
In addition to serving as chief manager, Jeff maintains his role as a trusted advisor to the firm’s clients. He has extensive experience providing audit work for employee benefit plans, governmental and not-for-profit entities, manufacturing and construction companies and contractors. Through his skill and ongoing commitment to remain abreast of the latest accounting information and trends, Jeff is able to offer a variety of accounting and consulting services to his clients.
Backed by his belief that Watkins Uiberall’s greatest asset is its people, Jeff is dedicated to ensuring staff members reach their highest potential through improved professional development and internal communication. As a result of reinforcing the internal strengths of the firm, Jeff helps clients experience the value of building long-standing relationships with highly talented, reliable professionals.
Jeff began his public accounting career immediately following his graduation from the University of Alabama in 1987. He worked for a locally owned firm in Nashville for three years before earning a position with Watkins, Watkins and Keenan. Jeff worked his way through the ranks of the firm to lead what is now Watkins Uiberall, PLLC.
Inspired by his father’s commitment, dedication and work ethic as a certified public accountant, Jeff strives to provide the same level of effort and integrity as a firm leader. Jeff’s approachability and strong commitment to his family, staff and clients are significant factors in his success.
