St. Louis - Anders CPAs + Advisors (Anders) welcomes Jacques LeBeau as Director + Talent. With over 20 years of experience in specialized financial and accounting recruiting at every level, LeBeau will lead the newly established outsourced talent sourcing efforts at the firm, working with clients to find financial and accounting talent to fit their needs.
Prior to joining Anders, LeBeau was a Vice President in the Finance and Accounting division for a publicly traded global staffing firm. Throughout his career, LeBeau built relationships with companies of all sizes in the St. Louis area, continuously sourcing candidates for client openings and managing the sales process from initial interview through offer and acceptance. LeBeau has also mentored many recruiters during that time. At Anders, LeBeau will develop the processes needed to deliver high quality, cost-effective recruiting services to our clients. He has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis on Management from the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, Missouri.
“One of the areas we identified where our clients are struggling is finding and retaining top-quality talent”, explains David Hartley, Partner and Director + Advisory Services. “Challenging economic conditions and a shortage of suitable candidates is creating difficulties for many middle-market companies. We identified a need in the market for us to help our clients with these talent issues.”
As our clients’ needs for qualified financial talent grows, the firm believes bringing in LeBeau is a natural step in developing more strategic advisory service offerings. According to the Journal of Accountancy, “as technology performs more compliance-related tasks and CPAs shift their focus to advisory services and value-added strategic input, the prospects for profit and growth appear to be as bright as at any point in the profession's history.” Anders currently advises clients in the areas of technology, outsourced accounting, fraud, valuation, litigation, cybersecurity and data analytics, among others, and will continue to grow these areas and add new opportunities that fit into the firm’s commitment to strategic growth.
Anders has over 200 partners and staff members and $38.6 million in revenue. For more than 50 years, Anders has delivered full-service accounting, tax, audit and advisory services to growth-oriented companies, organizations and individuals. Anders is a member firm of the Leading Edge Alliance (LEA), one of the largest international associations of independent accounting firms.
