Career Path Leads Back Home
Former Blue Jay finds rewarding career at WK
When he graduated from Westminster College, WK audit partner Troy Norton, CPA / ABV left the familiarity of Central Missouri to begin his public accounting career with one of the largest firms in the world.
Leaving the area opened up new opportunities for Troy and his wife, who grew up approximately an hour north of the Westminster campus. But as their young family grew, relocating closer to home became a priority. That led the Nortons to Springfield, Mo. and a new position with a large national accounting firm for Troy.
A few years later, Troy made his last career stop in Columbia.
“I enjoyed my time with other firms, but WK provided me the opportunity to come home and still have the challenging and rewarding career opportunity I was looking for,” says Troy, who joined WK’s partner group in 2002 and has been in public accounting for more than 25 years.
Among the many things that Troy values about WK is the close-knit nature of the firm’s employees. “I really enjoying getting to know our associates and their families,” Troy says. “That’s a great benefit to working in a firm like ours.”
“Being a business owner in an exceptional firm and raising my family in the community that we chose has been the right fit for me.”
