Doug Freeman

Doug Freeman

Doug's work as a CPA began nearly 30 years ago. He spent the first 10 years of his career working in public accounting firms, both large and small, and made the decision to leave public accounting when he was offered the position of CFO for a regional technology solution provider. That gave him the opportunity to practice his passion — working with a small business to use finance and accounting to enable its growth. Following his work at the technology firm, Doug took on the challenge of a similar position at a much larger global product testing and safety company. While he relished the growth opportunities this position provided him, he realized he missed his true passion. In late 2015 Doug decided to establish his own CPA practice, which eventually led to his acquisition of Kelly T. Davis, CPA, PA, in November 2016. The firm continues to have double-digit organic growth due to great clients for whom great people provide great service.

Doug graduated from Baylor University in 1988 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting and finance. He is both a CPA and CGMA and is licensed in the state of Kansas. He is a member of the AICPA as well as the Kansas Society of CPAs. Doug is engaged with several ministries in Kansas City, but one of his favorite involvements is leading an annual trip to Haiti through The Global Orphan Project. Doug has been married for 28 years and has 5 children, which generally keeps him busy on evenings and weekends either coaching or watching one of his kids in sports, but he can sometimes be found relaxing at the lake with his family.
