Bruce Phillips, CPA

Managing Director and Partner, Aprio Cloud

Bruce A. Phillips is a seasoned CPA and a passionate advocate for cloud technology. Having not only run his CPA firm for 25 years, but also serving as a CFO and COO of tech start-ups, he was an early adopter of cloud technology for accounting and other businesses. A well-known name in the SaaS industry, Bruce has been a key beta tester for several cloud technologies and was profiled as early as 2010 by several key players in the industry. More recently he has been featured by Xero, Expensify, Gusto, Receipt Bank and Hubdoc, all of whom he has close relationships with.

Prior to co-founding HPC (formerly Harshman, Phillips & Company), Bruce spent seven years at E&Y, including two years as an audit manager. As he helped clients navigate the challenging tax and compliance environments in each role, he gained invaluable insight into best practices for conducting business and the myriad of ways technology can enhance business efficiency.

Bruce enjoys learning about the latest technologies and how he can use them to better his clients, as well as Aprio Cloud. Not only do his clients and Aprio Cloud reap the benefits of his love of cloud technology, but so do his peers. Colleagues regularly go to Bruce for advice on how to change over to cloud-based services or ask how to help their clients make the switch.

Bruce is a graduate of The College of William and Mary where he earned his degree in Accounting. Originally from Providence, Rhode Island, he now calls Atlanta, Georgia home. When he’s not assisting clients with their cloud technology needs or providing accounting advice, Bruce is a wine enthusiast, an active tennis player and a passionate traveler.
