Mark Hurst, CPA

Mark is the co-founder of Hurst, Kelly & Company LLC.  Mark is responsible for the local government accounting and consulting services offered by Hurst, Kelly & Company LLC.

Prior to starting Hurst, Kelly & Company LLC, Mark served as the assurance manager in charge of the local government and not-for-profit practice unit of a regional accounting firm.  As a result, Mark has significant, meaningful experience performing auditing, accounting and consulting services for local governments and not-for-profits.

In addition to being well-versed with local governments and not-for-profits, Mark is also quite experienced with accounting and tax compliance issues frequently faced by privately held business enterprises.  Mark became familiar the types of tax issues that many privately held business enterprises commonly encounter while working in the corporate income tax department for one of the “big four” accounting firms.  Mark’s accounting experience serving privately held business enterprises is a result of his many years serving as the in-charge of auditing and consulting engagements of manufacturers, distributors, health care providers and various professional service entities.

Mark’s well-rounded and diverse background in auditing, accounting and tax compliance allow him to bring first-hand, relevant experience to his clients which translates into the implementation of highly effective and efficient solutions to address the needs of his clients.
