A Message from Johnny W. Barranco, CPA, Owner
Johnny W. Barranco, CPA
It’s hard to believe I have been in this industry for nearly 20 years. I’ve been extremely fortunate to work for a small public accounting firm (less than 30 employees), a large public accounting firm (over 700 employees) and as CFO for a large multi-location Company with over 1,000 employees and multiple revenue centers. I’ve been even more fortunate to know and work with a diverse group of clients from start-ups to multi-national Companies.
When I started Barranco & Associates almost 2 years ago, I used the many experiences throughout my career as a CPA to understand what clients really want and need. My basic goal is to assist my clients in every aspect of their financial lives by providing the most personal client experience possible. It has always been known by fellow CPA’s that we provide many more services than just Tax and Accounting compliance, but unfortunately, our client’s either didn’t know or ask. Overall financial education is a personal mission to me. My client’s become friends. We all expect our friends to call and talk about their everyday lives and we give our advice and offer our assistance. I expect the same relationship with my client’s.
Myself and the team here at Barranco & Associates love meeting and working with new clients. We strive to bring value to their everyday financial lives whether it’s helping to realize their personal goals or their Company goals.
After graduating from Auburn University in 2001, Johnny followed in the footsteps of his father becoming a CPA and working in public accounting for nearly 12 years before taking a leap in 2013 and accepting the role of CFO for a large restaurant group. While that experience was great and very rewarding, in 2018 he missed the opportunities afforded in public accounting and left to become the founding member of Barranco & Associates. Ultimately, the excitement of working with different industry’s and with different people was to much to be away from.
Johnny has extensive experience in the area of tax. He has a wide range of accounting experience which enables him to provide relevant and timely advice and assistance to business owners with their internal accounting, reporting, forecasting and development and implementation of succession plans. He also has helped multiple businesses grow through strategic partnerships and his relationships in various industries.
Johnny is married to Ginger Barranco and has five kids; Kate (13), Ally (11), Wesley (10), Sam (7) and Jack (5 months). They are parishioners of St. Lawrence Catholic Church and active at Christ the King Catholic School.
