Brian L. Bastian, CPA 

From the very first accounting class he attended, partner Brian Bastian was inspired to enter the field. He has since contributed over 24 years to the profession and in that time has treated every client’s business as if it were his own. With four years of experience as a Chief Financial Officer, Brian’s advice and support are valuable commodities for any business.

Brian feels that getting to know his clients personally makes the work experience enjoyable for everyone and that Schlenner Wenner & Co. facilitates that personal interaction through its open and friendly atmosphere.
