Jim Colville started his own CPA firm in 1982 offering auditing and tax services along with consulting, litigation support, fraud services, PC training and technology solutions. He joined CBIZ (formerly Nation Smith Hermes Diamond) and its affiliate Mayer Hoffman & McCann P.C. to manage special litigation support and forensic accounting related projects. These projects required an extensive background in audit, tax and technology in which I was well prepared.He then began his own firm performing financial audits, fraud and forensic accounting engagements and Excel projects. As of January 1, 2019 he retired as an active CPE (some engagements are performed in 2019 as a part of the transition) and is now focusing on AEI.
