Justin Gatewood, EA

Bookkeeping Manager
With CBC since 2010

Justin began at CBC with no intention of going into accounting. He was initially brought on to help out while the front administrator was away on vacation. 

During that time, he was asked to assist with a few small bookkeeping projects and showed quite a knack for it. Just after finishing school, Justin began working more frequently at Clendenin Bird & Company. Before long, he was a full-time bookkeeper, preparing payroll and reconciling bank accounts.

Now a few years down the road, Justin oversees the bookkeeping department and manages the books for dozens of clients and also assists the preparation of tax returns ranging from individuals to corporations.

His favorite thing is assisting small business owners and non-profit organizations with their everyday activities and helping guide them to continued success. In particular, Justin enjoys working with Stanislaus Multi-Cultural Health Coalition (SMCC). Their goal is to promote healthy living in low income communities. Its growth and continued success are a great personal joy for Justin as he works very closely with SMCC and its staff.

In his free time, Justin enjoys traveling with his wife, Cheryl, and going on hikes with their dog, Yoda. He also plays guitar and participates in multiple adult sport leagues in the area. He currently plays soccer and flag football and has a fear of the day he won’t be able to play anymore.

Justin is currently taking additional courses in Accounting and wishes to pursue this further. Justin sat for and passed his Enrolled Agent exam in 2016.
