I was raised and educated in Medicine Hat. After graduating from Medicine Hat High School, I attended Medicine Hat College, and then transferred to the University of Calgary. I attained my Bachelor of Commerce degree with a Major in Accounting in June of 1981.
After university, I obtained an articling position with KPMG in Calgary. I wrote the Uniform Final Exam in the fall of 1984 and received my Chartered Accountant designation in January of 1985.
With my formal education process complete, I looked for an opportunity to move back to the Hat. I was hired as the Manager of the Bow Island office by a local firm known at that time as Flynn, Tate & Co. I spent over twenty years with this firm, with sixteen of them as a partner.
In the fall of 2005, my wife Teresa and I founded Schwab & Co. I have enjoyed the continuous process of refinement and growth of our firm. I have found working with our people and our clients most rewarding and look forward to many more prosperous years.
I have been actively involved in the community as a member of the Kinsmen Club for thirteen years and as a Board member of our YMCA for eleven years. Presently, I am on the Board of KidSport Medicine Hat and Redcliff.
Over the years, I have developed an appreciation for a healthy lifestyle and work out regularly. I also like golfing, especially the social aspect of the game. I have been fortunate to golf with a great group of guys and always look forward to our annual golf trip which we have been doing for more than thirty years.
