Cody Goertz, cpa*


I was born and raised in the small town of Rockne, Texas and moved to College Station to attend Texas A&M University. Upon obtaining my bachelor’s degree in accounting and master’s degree in finance, I moved to Austin where I started my public accounting career at EY within the assurance practice.

During my time in Austin, I served on multiple public and private tech, biotech, and real estate engagements. After three years of enjoying the live music capital of the world, I transferred to the Seattle office where I primarily served on clients within the biotech and tech industries. During my time at EY, I was exposed to numerous clients, large and small, where I was challenged to address numerous complex matters including companies undergoing first-time SOX implementation, multiple first-year financial statement audits, and implementation of new accounting standards. My time at EY revealed my passion for being side-by-side with the clients all awhile understanding, documenting, and solving their complex accounting matters. It was this (along with escaping the Seattle rain) that led me to join Embark’s Denver office where I am leveraging my experiences to achieve client goals, adding value by consistently seeking the best solutions, building internal and external relationships, and mentoring team members.

Outside of work, you can find me spending time with family and friends, discovering the beauty of Mother Nature, searching for the best cup of coffee, exploring local breweries, enjoying live music, watching Fightin’ Texas Aggie football, and rewatching episodes of Parks and Rec.
