After graduating from Robert Morris University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting, Preston Saxton began his Accounting career with one of the Big Four public accounting firms, Deloitte Tax LLP in Pittsburgh. During his time with Deloitte, Preston served as a Tax Consultant specializing in partnerships, trusts returns, individual tax returns, and tax provisions for private and public companies. He additionally gained experience in the Chicago office preparing tax returns for one of Deloitte’s largest clients.
After spending four years in public accounting, Preston transitioned into corporate accounting under the Asset Management department for Bayer Corporation. His responsibilities included accurately reporting of the AUC balance through the classification of capital expenditures vs. expenses for all legal entities within the United States. In addition to working with Bayer’s Asset Management team, he also assisted Internal Accounting and Transactional Accounting. By working across multiple departments, he quickly developed a thorough, technical knowledge of the overall Accounting function at Bayer.
As Preston developed his network and continued to expand upon his accounting knowledge, he quickly realized that he wanted to apply his knowledge of the CFO-organization to help colleagues and like-minded professionals. Mr. Saxton joins Pinnacle as a Senior Associate and looks forward to working with others to build and advance their careers.
