about

My name is Bruce Cook.  I am a licensed Certified Public Accountant, a very well-rounded Controller with business ownership experience. And, a rare native Austinite!

After a successful early career in taxation, auditing and various industries, I left corporate America and started an advertising business from the ground up with no knowledge of selling. Selling advertising was a great learning experience and I got to meet and know many, many small business owners. Five years later, I sold the business. 

In between running a successful travel and tour business leading group tours all over the world and a foray into the global export business, I realized I enjoyed working one-on-one with business owners and made the decision to become a business consultant.

In 2003, I launched Discount Business Brokers USA to offer business sellers the professional resources they needed to sell their business at reasonable and fair pricing.

In 2006 I was successfully engaged to step in and help a troubled commercial construction company. Then, in 2008, I began consulting for a Bio Tech start up company. That path led to consulting assignments with other Bio Tech companies that I am working with now. I enjoy helping start ups get the professional guidance they really need at that early stage.

When I’m not consulting, I run a bed and breakfast, the Lake Travis Tree Lodge. I also operate a boutique tour company named Third Rock Tours.

Turn my passion for travel and desire to do project work into your advantage - you only have to engage me for the actual time you need me! You control your costs.

I enjoy getting to know small business owners and would like to see if I can help your business. I am available for a confidential, no-cost, no-hassle, honest discussion of your business goals, issues and solutions. The next step is yours. 

Contact me. 

You will never meet a more people-orientated CPA, I promise you!

 

You'll be glad you did.
