Brian D. Mackinac, CPA

Not long after taking his first Introduction to Accounting class, partner Brian Mackinac knew that he had found his calling. He immediately saw that that there was something behind the numbers with which he worked, namely, the lives of the people he served. More than anything, Brian enjoys helping people improve their living situation and assisting them in times of uncertainty and change. He was able to put this skill to use previously as Mayor of Little Falls and currently as partner at Schlenner Wenner & Co. In addition to the joy he finds in assisting others, Brian appreciates the people on his team. The partners and employees share an enthusiasm for what they do, making the workplace fun, especially during the long hours of tax season.
