David was the Corporate Controller of The Home Depot, where he first began using cost segregation in the 80s, when it was called component depreciation.  He was then the CFO and an equity Partner at NTW, where he completed cost seg services for all their stores.  After selling NTW, he became one of the initial 10 Partners of Tatum CFO, now a division of Randstad, where he provided cost segregation and outsourced CFO Services to numerous businesses. 

In 1994, David began providing cost segregation services as a sole proprietor CPA, and ultimately founded Cost Segregation Advisors, LLC in 2006 to meet the needs of his growing client list.  Having completed cost segregation projects with both KPMG and Ernst & Young, and having used cost segregation from the perspectives of property owner, cost seg client, and cost seg service provider, David possesses a 360 degree knowledge of cost seg that few other providers rival.

 

Christie began her career in business as an at-home entrepreneur who successfully grew her company from her home kitchen, to a 10,000 sq. ft. kitchen with distribution to national markets.  Afterwards, she realized her best skill was problem solving and helping businesses grow - for this reason, she joined a McKinsey spin-off, Katzenbach Partners LLC. At Katzenbach, she assisted with clients ranging from Pfizer, to T-Mobile, to Columbia University’s Mailman School, before helping KPL through a successful merger with Booz & Co. before moving on to open her next entrepreneurial venture, a consulting firm offering 'big consulting' experience to small and medium sized businesses - Christie's passion.  After many years of working with Cost Segregation Advisors as a client of her strategy services, Christie joined Cost Segregation Advisors full time in the role of Chief Strategy Officer before assuming the role of President.
