Adrian G. Simmons is a CPA innovating ways to put money in its place. His first debit was made in the classrooms of Loyola University Maryland, where he completed his studies in 2000, and then launched out as an auditor with KPMG Baltimore. He was relieved to have passed the CPA exam in one sitting so he could avoid more studying, but was surprised to learn that it came with an Elijah Watts Sells Silver medal. In 2002, he left KPMG to join his father in public practice, and began the work of serving small businesses, individuals, and non-profits. Since that time, the practice has grown to now four individuals, and the team works together to help customers become financially strong, so that they can focus on what truly matters in life. Adrian likes tech, uses a fountain pen, prefers dark over milk chocolate, and is happy to say he recently survived a half-marathon. His faith is very important to him, and he teaches Sunday school at his local parish. He also likes the out-of-doors, always keeping an eye out for ways to walk, hike, bike, ski, scuba, camp, swim, and others — one he’d really like to do soon is whitewater rafting. In the world of accounting, his interests lie in finding ways to make business more human, in keeping numbers secondary as a support to life aspirations, and in molding technology to enable creative expression. He is excited to be a part of the network of Thrivealists who share this passion, and are pioneering a new future for the profession.

A 10+-year veteran of the tax and accounting industry -- with a focus on Internet Marketing and Direct Response media, Nate Hagerty has established a reputation for straight-talk and results on behalf of members and concierge clients, and has become a widely-followed and respected marketing voice to the industry.
His company, TaxProMarketer was established in May of 2007 (then known as BuildaHerd Marketing) in response to increased demand for real-world relationship-building and profit-producing tools and strategy for use in the legal, tax and accounting industry. Currently, TaxProMarketer staff serves clients primarily in the tax & accounting world, but in a variety of other service professional industries (lawyers, financial professionals) all across the United States and Canada who use their services to build relationships with their prospects & existing clients, as well as grow the value of their business (for immediate cashflow and future sale-ability) by utilizing these tools.
In 2003, Mr. Hagerty became the Marketing Director of a regional tax firm in Virginia.
This firm grew from a small $50,000/year firm to one which took in over $4.3 million in tax prep fees alone in less than ten years, employing over 440 people with 23 locations throughout Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee. From 2003 until 2006, Mr. Hagerty directed the marketing and sales of this company, as it yearly surpassed the sales of well-known national franchises in its 15 market areas. During this period, he worked as a coach and consultant to the tax and accounting industry, helping thousands of other tax business owners in the US, Canada, Australia and the UK make more money and grow their companies.
Having founded and sold his first business by the age of 30, Mr. Hagerty (a member of Mensa) was recently honored as one of CPA Technology Advisor's "Top 40 Under 40", has been published widely in industry publications and is the author & editor of two Amazon Best-Selling books (Breaking the Tax Code, Vols. 1 & 2).
He now devotes his full-time energy to assisting other business owners in achieving their long-held dreams for their businesses by building profitable “herds” of clients through a down-to-earth, relationship-oriented approach. TaxProMarketer combines his relationship-building expertise (from his experience as a former youth minister), his passion for effective and clear communication (informed by his English degree from the University of Virginia), and gift for writing copy that sells. He is married, and has five children, four of whom he and his wife adopted from Ethiopia and Uganda.
