ATLAS Announces Promotion of Andrew Wendt to Partner
Andrew Wendt joined ATLAS CPAs & Advisors at the Partner level on January 1st, 2024. He brings more than 13 years of experience to ATLAS, including time spent performing audits in public accounting, as well as internal audits.
Andrew has spent the past 3 years as a Senior Audit Manager in ATLAS’s Northwest Phoenix and South Phoenix locations, performing audits for clients across the country.
Andrew graduated from DeVry University with a Bachelors in Accounting; following which he attended Keller Graduate School of Management where he earned his MAFM – Masters in Accounting and Financial Management – in 2012. Post-graduation, Andrew spent more than a decade handling public accounting audit work in various sectors, including government, education, for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, and more. His years in internal auditing provided the unique perspective of participating in audits from the client side when external auditors were present. Andrew leans into this experience and insight to ensure a smooth process and a high level of care for his clients.
Exemplary work and impressive leadership qualities, made Andrew a logical choice for a Partner promotion with ATLAS. When asked what he loves most about his chosen career, Wendt said, “I most enjoy the satisfaction from my clients;” and it shows in Andrew’s commitment to high level, professional audit work, with positive client relationships. His favorite type of audit work is with government, school district, and non-profit organizations.
“I am beyond grateful for everything ATLAS has provided me with. I look forward to continued success here at the firm, and seeing our audit team and other employees continue to develop and grow into their careers. ATLAS stands for ‘Advisors That Listen And Serve’ and I try to keep that in mind throughout my work day. Our team is great at keeping the client in mind and making sure they are completely happy with the outcome of the services provided. Overall, I feel we have a team in place that will keep growing the firm, while also giving clients the satisfaction of successful services in all areas of audit, tax, accounting, and more, as provided by ATLAS.”
Outside of the office, Andrew enjoys spending time with his wife, and their 2 children. They enjoy pool time with family and friends; and love traveling the world together. He plays men’s softball, and coaches his son’s baseball and football teams.
