Donovan CPAs has been an establishment in central Indiana for 50 years as a top accounting, tax and business consulting firm…but we always felt we were missing something. We figured out that the missing piece to our puzzle was adding Jay Boughner as our newest partner.
Ceaselessly, we endeavor to expand our services and capabilities by merging with other reputable firms, partnering with influential Indy institutions and promoting highly valued individuals, like Jay Boughner, to prominent positions within our firm.
Jay steps into this new role already holding down the weighty position of Director of Advisory Services. With 25+ years of experience in business strategy and finance, Jay is a more than ideal fit for his role as Partner.
Rex Miller, Partner at Donovan, remarks, “Jay’s passion for helping those in business attain success is one of the many reasons we believe he is a great fit for his new position as Partner. His drive and determination to ensure that all of his clients’ needs are met, and exceeded, is astounding. We’re grateful to have him as a part of our team and excited for him to step into his new role.”
“What Jay brings to our team is a natural ability to connect with people, supporting the passion and vision they have for their business and finances while sharing his wealth of financial expertise deftly and unselfishly,” adds Jeff Donovan, Managing Partner at Donovan. “We have full confidence that Jay will excel as Partner. His contributions have been, and will continue to be, vital to the growth and success of Donovan.”
