Jason's first job following college was as a staff auditor at Lindburg, Vogel, Pierce, & Faris in the Hutchinson, Kansas office. This is the same company that Scott Coop hires each year to perform our year end audit. He was there for nine months when he decided to move back closer to home to work for Western State Bank in Garden City. He was a staff auditor and assistant vice president in the accounting department for 1 1/2 years before making the move to Scott Coop.
Jason is the youngster but he brings with him a good background of knowledge and expertise to the office. He is already a valuable asset to our company.
