Sean McCarthy, Director, Brady Ware Dealership AdvisorsAfter more than 30 years of service as both a local dealership CFO and auto industry CPA in Columbus, Sean McCarthy has joined Brady Ware Dealership Advisors as a Director and merged his practice into the firm. Brady Ware Dealership Advisors, which is one of the most trusted names in accounting and financial services for auto dealers in the Midwest, recently launched a new business model that offers comprehensive consulting services in addition to expanding their team of dedicated CPAs and consultants that serve more than 90 auto dealerships throughout the Midwest and the Southeast.

“Sean is more than a CPA. He’s truly a financial architect with decades of experience working with dealerships,” Brady Ware Director Sam Agresti said. “He is an industry expert in buy/sell transactions and will provide true CFO level services to our clients. Sean is a tremendous asset to the team and his leadership will be instrumental in the future growth of our automotive group.”

McCarthy has worked as a CPA for 30 years, spending his first decade with a local firm, then serving as CFO of two of Columbus’ largest automotive groups. After more than a decade within the dealership walls, he returned to independently serving a greater number of auto industry clients.

“I started working in the auto industry in 1989 and I’ve seen my clients through a number of industry changes, navigating through everything from a massive recession to swings in buying trends and the evolution of car buying in a digital world,” said McCarthy. “The model that Brady Ware has created to evolve the services CPA’s can offer to their clients is a game changer for financial consultants. I now have a tool kit of solutions for dealerships that strategically address inefficiencies impacting their bottom line, and the resources to fix them.
I’m excited to be a part of the evolution and looking forward to the future as part of Brady Ware Dealership Advisors.”
