Jennings & Clouse, PLC was formed in 1996 when Barry Clouse joined Robert Jennings in his private practice. Both were experienced CPAs who had gained decades of experience in Middle Tennessee’s most prestigious public accounting firms.
Robert and Barry envisioned building a new kind of public accounting firm. They imagined a partnership staffed by experts dedicated to providing the ultimate in caring client service. They envisioned a firm guided by the belief that, though numbers are important, they are always part of a bigger picture—a picture they would strive to understand.
They dreamed of building close relationships with every client and helping them navigate the road to success.
Today, the dream shared by Robert Jennings and Barry Clouse has blossomed into a thriving and respected public accounting firm that proudly serves hundreds of individuals, families, businesses and organizations throughout the region.
