Kent Pendergrass

senior associate

I was born in raised in the Tampa area and attended the University of South Florida where I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Accounting, before obtaining my Masters of Accounting in 2018.

I started my career with internships with Raymond James Financial and KPMG during my undergrad, before starting full-time with KPMG back in 2018. During my time at KPMG, I was able to work on clients in several industries with a large portion of my time spent focusing on Financial Services.

Early on in college I realized my interest in accounting systems and decided to get a minor in Business Analytics and Information Systems which allowed me to learn SQL, C+, and IDEA (Caseware) while completing my degree. This interest in data and accounting systems has been embedded in each step of my career.

Currently in my career opportunities to learn new systems like Alteryx, Power Bi, and Tableau and then apply them in new situations has been the part of accounting/auditing that keeps engaged and excited! Aside from auditing, the highpoints of my time with KPMG include leading my local and national senior councils and wrangling up a dozen accountants to form a KPMG Tampa intermural kickball team.

Outside of work I enjoy traveling, hiking, biking, and amateur photography.
