Isaiah T. Gresham
Isaiah T. Gresham is the founder and president of Gresham Financial, which provides tax, accounting and outsourced chief financial officer (CFO) services for business owners, executives and independent professionals. He started the company in 2016 with a goal of helping clients plan for the future, grow their businesses and accumulate savings to achieve their dreams.
Gresham has been doing his friends’ and family’s taxes since 2009; today, he treats each client return with the same level of care and concern. Leveraging his deep industry expertise and personal dedication, his proactive approach goes beyond tax preparation to help clients live more fulfilled lives.
Gresham’s passion for helping people thrive extends to small-business owners and executives. The way a company is structured impacts the owner’s business, investment and estate planning taxes — and Gresham understands these complex interactions, as well as how to limit liability in each area. Serving clients not just as an accountant, but also as a strategic partner, he offers outsourced chief financial officer (CFO) services and access to a network of trusted professionals outside accounting.
Gresham is deeply involved in philanthropy, with a focus on creating and sharing educational content to promote financial literacy in local communities. He speaks regularly to audiences from high school students to business owners and professional organizations on financial and business topics.
Among other philanthropic pursuits, Gresham shared his entrepreneurial experience and mentored students at his former high school, the Alabama School of Math and Science. He also worked with Lawson State Community College to educate students about CPA careers at the City of Birmingham’s technology and career fair. He currently speaks to Adult Family Home business owners at North Seattle Community College about contractor relationships and regularly produces educational content on his YouTube channel.
Outside the office, Gresham enjoys being outdoors, traveling and spending time with his family.
