Greatest Accomplishments:
When asked about his greatest achievements, Mr. Eickhoff says they come from both professional and personal successes, "I think my greatest accomplishments have come from positively impacting the lives of people around me. As a lifeguard in San Diego, I would make a lot of rescues during the summer. Most rescues were focused on prevention, but there were many that saved a life or kept a child from getting injured on the rocks. As a tax consultant focused on tax incentives, our work provides working capital that can create additional jobs for our clients and helps drive their success."
