Michael joined Barfield, Murphy, Shank & Smith in 2005. As a senior manager, he is responsible for audit and assurance services. Michael has experience working with clients in the financial services, technology, manufacturing and distribution industries.
It is his expertise in this field that makes Michael such a valuable team member with over a decade of accounting experience. In a client success story, he helped a large client set up their initial trial balance after multiple acquisitions and break out into separate locations. Michael has also assisted several clients draft their initial SOC reports.
Michael attributes his success to his strong work ethic and support from his family. Already a person who enjoys working with numbers, it was a friend’s father that helped move him towards the field of accounting.
Michael currently lives in Homewood with his wife, two children, a cat and a dog. Since he grew up in Birmingham, Michael has the privilege of being close to many of his extended and immediate family members. When not at the office, Michael enjoys running half marathons, camping and working on house projects.
