HCJ CPAs is excited to announce two new additions to its professional team. Brian Williams joins the firm as Network Administrator, and Jessica Smith, CPA rejoins the firm as a Senior Auditor.

A professional in the IT field since 2004, Brian brings with him 18 years of valuable experience. He previously served primarily in the medical field and with the state. In his capacity as Network Administrator, Brian is primarily responsible for providing IT support to all four office locations. He specializes in application and hardware support.

Jessica served on the HCJ CPAs team from 2017-2021. She was working as a Senior Accountant with the firm when a move to St. Louis, Missouri caused her to leave Little Rock and her job with HCJ CPAs. Jessica spent the last year working for a St. Louis-based IT services and IT consulting firm. She is excited to rejoin HCJ CPAs as a Senior Auditor.

“I am thrilled to welcome Brian to the firm and to welcome Jessica back!” said Karen Garrett, CPA, managing partner of HCJ CPAs. “Brian’s extensive IT experience sets him up perfectly for the role of Network Administrator—I know that he will do a fantastic job. And Jessica we already know! I am so pleased to have her rejoin the team. She was and will be a valuable team member.”
