Clients gravitate to HORNE because we build relationships and offer guidance that is directly relevant to their current and future challenges. They know that our passion for service and expertise is unrivaled. We work to make a difference for their businesses and their lives.
I believe that leadership is about serving others and helping those around you see and reach their full potential. That belief shapes HORNE.

God, Family, Team, Friends, and Service
My wife Cathy and I are passionate about service to organizations that impact the lives of children because we have been blessed over and over with healthy children and grandchildren. We volunteer at Batson Children's Hospital. I recently completed a five-year term on the Make-A-Wish of Mississippi foundation board, and currently serve on the board of the JDRF of Central Mississippi.
I serve on the advisory board for the University of Mississippi’s Patterson School of Accountancy to give back to my school, our profession and young accountants. I co-authored “Creating Value, Your 90 Day Plan to Right Tracking Your Career” as a guide to help young professionals. With presentations, white papers, blogs and social media, I constantly share my knowledge, experience and passion with others.
Some of my most enjoyable time is spent hunting, fishing, and supporting college sports with family and friends.
