Jackson, TN – September 1, 2020 Alexander Thompson Arnold PLLC (ATA) is excited to announce the addition of Rick Schreiber as a partner to the firm. Rick comes to ATA with over 25 years of public accounting & advisory experience in helping companies increase the value of their businesses.

Schreiber was the National Leader of BDO’s Manufacturing & Distribution Practice, and the Southeast Regional Leader of BDO’s Retail & Consumer Business Practice.  He was also the National Co-Leader of BDO’s Industry 4.0 (Digital Transformation) Advisory Group and the managing partner of the Memphis BDO office. Rick holds numerous designations such as CPA, CVGA, CGMA, M&AP, and MBA, which enables him to work with IPO’s, secondary debt offerings, mergers & acquisitions, and value-growth advisory services. He has extensive experience in working with middle market and private equity backed companies.

“My background in both domestic and international companies in the manufacturing, distribution, retail, technology, and healthcare industries, has prepared me for this new role at ATA,” states Schreiber. “I’m looking forward to his new opportunity to help clients and their businesses on a national advisory level.”

“As a BDO alliance member, we have worked with Rick for many years and are very excited to welcome him to ATA,” said John Whybrew, Managing Partner. “As ATA expands its national advisory practice, Rick will be invaluable in providing the development and support our clients need.”

Most recently, Rick spent the last 13 years at BDO, where he was the Managing Partner for Assurance & Advisory Services at BDO Memphis. Prior to joining BDO, he worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers for 10 years in a number of their practice offices. Before joining PricewaterhouseCoopers, he worked for a local accounting firm providing assurance, tax, and broad-based business advisory services.

As National Advisory Practice Leader, Rick will expand the firm’s consulting practices and spread awareness of ATA’s Family of Firms, which are ancillary companies that provide business support to clients. He will oversee all advisory services for the firm, providing strategic direction for the consulting department, while building relationships and building our client base. He will come in as a Member/Partner, so he will also work cross-functionally with the partner/leadership group for the overall objectives of the firm.
