Meet the Team

Matthew Sawyer

Matt Sawyer is a rare Atlanta, Georgia native, born in Decatur and raised in Marietta. Prior to joining the BJM team, Matt was working at a smaller local CPA firm, but searching for a role at a larger firm that would offer more career growth opportunities. He was first introduced to BJM tax manager Ellen Gelfand, and stuck around after the initial interview to meet Neal Bach. “I really enjoyed meeting Ellen and Neal, and learning about BJM’s growth plans,” Matt commented. “BJM was looking for someone to focus on corporate tax returns, which is exactly what I wanted to do.”

Matt enjoys working at a larger, more structured CPA firm, but also appreciates the relaxed work environment. “We work really hard to please our clients, but everyone here is easy to talk to and always willing to lend a hand, Matt added.” In addition to corporate tax preparation, Matt is expanding his expertise by doing bookkeeping, individual tax return, and community association work.

When he’s not helping BJM clients, Matt likes to spend time with friends and family. He’s the youngest of three siblings, but has the same birthday as his two older sisters.
