The Glenn Burdette StoryThe Glenn Burdette Story

Dan O'Hare, President/Managing Director, Glenn Burdette, San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles and Santa Maria

On March 15, 1965, Fred Glenn began what would become GBP&B Tax and Business Advisors as a sole owner in a small office on Marsh Street in San Luis Obispo. Today we are a regional leader in audit, tax, consulting and management services. Our 50+ professionals include 26 CPAs who provide services to clients across many industries throughout San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties.

I joined the Firm in 1989 because I liked the idea of building a top-notch practice in a home-town setting where I could head out the door for a run on my lunch hour.

In June 2000, we became the first employee-owned California CPA firm when we formed our ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Just recently, to stay fresh, we updated our brand image and now simply go by Glenn Burdette.

We are actively involved in our community and our staff members serve on multiple boards, committees and professional forums. Our team members are often requested as guest lecturers at the local college and university.

We bank with Heritage Oaks Bank primarily because of the people. Mark Stasinis, in particular, has worked very hard for our business and has immersed himself in the complexity of our unique ESOP ownership structure, becoming an invaluable member of our team.

I still wear out lots of shoes on my Johnson Avenue noontime loops, enjoy golf a great deal, love watching my children participate in youth soccer and baseball and wouldn't miss a Notre Dame Football game!
