Episode 65 – Tyler Crawford & AJ VanderWoude

February 8, 2017

Tyler & AJ rap their way to better client connections


When Tyler Crawford and AJ VanderWoude started at BMSS a few years ago, little did they know they’d be creating original rap videos – the latest being CPA’s on Fleek. What started out as a fun way to learn about upcoming audits has now turned into an amazing way to create strong relationships with their clients.

In this episode, we talk about how their firm, BMSS, works to find the person behind the accountant. They encourage each individual to explore those talents and then use them to better their career, which in turn benefits the firm. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone operated with this mentality?

Tyler Crawford & AJ VanderWoude are Supervisors at Barfield, Murphy, Shank, & Smith, LLC.

They both graduated from Auburn University with an undergraduate degree in Accounting. Tyler went on to get his Masters in Accounting from the University of Alabama (which seems illegal to combine with an Auburn degree), while AJ received his from the University of Mississippi.
