Joey began his career more than 15 years ago at Deloitte in Houston where he worked in its enterprise risk services practice. In 2007, he began his first stint with Holtzman Partners’ internal controls group. He left the firm in 2010 to work at Green Mountain Energy as manager of the billing operations department. In 2012, his career took a major change when he became a pastor at his church, Hill Country Bible Church of Austin, first as the middle school pastor and then later transitioning to be the executive pastor of administration. In 2016, Joey decided that it was time to resume his career in public accounting and was welcomed back to Holtzman Partners as a senior manager in the internal controls and advisory practices. He enjoys collaborating with clients to ensure that their controls not only support the reporting of accurate financial information, but are also optimized to increase business efficiency and reduce costs.
