John Eger is a member of the Management Advisory Services team at HHM, as well as dealing with startup clients. He is an experienced advisor, having worked at a startup himself. He is able to apply his expertise in that environment as he provides tax services and helps his clients to take advantage of deductions unique to their circumstances.
As he spends time helping clients to plan their future goals and save money (both long and short-term), John works towards an additional goal of making things run as efficiently as possible for them. He knows that clients come to HHM to make financial matters easier for themselves, and he is dedicated to making it as easy as possible for them so they can focus on other pressing matters.
In addition to providing excellent accounting work, John loves to point out that HHM is here to serve the community first, whether that involves just doing their taxes really well or being involved in volunteer activities – or both! He enthusiastically does his part to push HHM to be more than just another accounting firm, but to truly be an integral part of the community.
During his previous job as an Accounting and Human Resources Manager with a local startup, John found that he was looking for a greater challenge and decided to move down the CPA route, pursuing his Masters of Accountancy. He enjoys being challenged, working through tough ideas with clients, and being exposed to a broad variety of different issues within the realm of accounting.
Born and raised in High Point, NC, John came to Chattanooga to play soccer at Covenant College. He fell in love with the area and stayed after graduating, now finding that he can’t imagine leaving.
During his spare time, you’ll find him playing soccer (and walking the sidelines as an assistant soccer coach at Covenant College). He enjoys spending time outside, whether hiking or playing any sport that he can, as well as traveling and exploring new places.
