David Baird, CPA, CVA
David and Don started their accounting firm in 1977 based on the principles of quality service, expertise, and sound business advice. These principals were developed from their life long relationships with family, friends, and business associates.
David grew up in Inverness on a family farm just five miles from our Indianola office, where he was introduced to sound conservative business principals. His education includes attendance at Marion Military Institute for his first year and one-half of college before transferring to Mississippi State University where he graduated in the fall of 1971 with a BS in Accounting. In May 1969 David joined the Army National Guard completing his full time training and returning to his local unit. He completed Officer Candidate School and received his commission as a Second Lieutenant in the summer of 1971. David continued to serve part time in the National Guard until 1980 having obtained the rank of Captain and serving as a Detachment and Company Commander. Prior to starting their own firm, David worked as an operational auditor for a health care entity and in public accounting for a local certified public accounting firm.
Having to start a new accounting business, David has performed every function of the firm. Over the years, the firm has enjoyed steady growth and the opportunity to apply his entrepreneurial skills and education. Today, his activities are concentrated on business tax and management advice along with estate planning. Most of the firm’s clients are small and medium size businesses which require personal, confidential, and a very experienced business advisor which comes with age and dedication. In the last ten years, David has served as executor of estates and as trustee of trusts. His role as executor and trustee in estates and trusts has given him insight to estate planning, tax, and business consideration of handling estate affairs.
David has recently completed his Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) designation. Along with the knowledge of business valuation has come the opportunity for litigation support. He has been involved and testified in court actions involving business and farm related matters. David is a member of the Mississippi Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
