Paul Hood graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1989, in the top 1% of his class with BS in Accounting. He began his career with the international CPA firm Deloitte and Touche as a Tax Professional and Employee Benefits Specialist. Hood started his own accounting practice in 1992, in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Since then, he has acquired more than 25 accounting practices with five offices in Oklahoma – Bartlesville, Tulsa, Claremore, Catoosa, and Sand Springs.
He also recently acquired two practices in Round Rock, Texas, with plans to continue expanding in Texas. An entrepreneur at heart, Hood has owned many businesses, including a bowling alley, sports bar and restaurant, and many millions of dollars of real estate.
In response to noticing not all clients’ needs were being satisfied, he became licensed to consult on life insurance, annuities, financial planning, and investments.
Hood has been recognized as a Personal Financial Specialist by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. He currently serves on the Forbes Financial Council and is regularly featured on radio, print, and television as an expert on tax and financial matters.
