Daniel Chenoweth’s start in accounting is untraditional but perhaps fated nonetheless. With his undergraduate degree in psychology, he opted to postpone his graduate studies but was having trouble finding a job. He contacted a temp agency and was assigned to filing papers in an accounting department. He found he loved the work, and the employer hired him full-time as an accounting clerk. Soon thereafter, he returned to graduate school to obtain his degree in accounting.
To this day, Daniel’s favorite parts of his work are generating ideas and seeing them turn into reality as he helps his clients plan for new operations, figure out ways to increase efficiency and minimize tax to increase cash flow and maximize growth.
Virginia Business magazine has twice awarded him their Super CPA recognition in the Small Business Consulting category. An active member of the Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, he currently serves as chairman of the board of directors. He previously served as the treasurer for the executive committee, is a graduate of the Lead Peninsula program and presents on numerous accounting topics for chamber members.
In addition to his accounting work, Daniel previously served as an adjunct professor at the West Virginia Wesleyan College in Buckhannon, West Virginia in the college’s Master of Business Administration program. He taught at both undergraduate and graduate levels, including courses on finance, forensic accounting and investigations, basic accounting and oil and gas taxation. Dan has also led continuing professional education classes on oil and gas due diligence and Virginia state taxes.
During his leisure time, Daniel is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys surfing, playing music and spending time with his family.
