John Garrett

The Recovering CPA

John Garrett, “The Recovering CPA,” is on a mission to help firms develop a culture where professionalism doesn’t suffocate their personality. As a speaker and consultant, firms regularly come to John because of his unique view that firm culture starts outside the office with each individual’s passions and interests. John graduated from the University of Notre Dame with an accounting degree before starting at PwC and earning his CPA. He then became a professionally-touring comedian, writing for an Emmy-nominated show, recording a comedy album now on Sirius|XM, and hosting the weekly Green Apple Podcast.
