Ryan Biegger, CPA*

Senior associate

Born and raised in Waukee, Iowa. I attended the University of Northern Iowa for college, where I obtained my Masters of Accounting and CPA license. After school, I started my career at Ernst and Young working in their assurance practice. My primary focus was on investment portfolios of financial service companies with an emphasis on the financial reporting and SOX control testing environment of the audits. I was also able to sprinkle in financial advisory project work that consisted of implementing controls for financial reporting and auditing a billion dollar client merger and acquisition transaction. Over my last year at EY, I had transitioned into the role of digital advisor, helping EY teams across the Midwest region improve their audits with new digital tools the firm implemented and ensuring they met auditing standards.

During quarantine, my girlfriend and I decided to make the move down to Austin! I was able to work remotely which made the transition pretty easy. I enjoyed my time working for a Big 4 company and gaining valuable accounting and business knowledge, but I knew deep down I wanted to seek out something where I had the opportunity to help companies with the knowledge I had gained. I have a passion to help others. Embark offers a vast majority of opportunities to help companies and that lined up exactly with what my appetite was craving. I have heard nothing but great things about Embark and am looking to make an impact right away!

Outside of work, I like to stay active and spend my free time outdoors by playing a round of golf, going hiking, or spending time near the water. Additionally, I grew up playing basketball and baseball so I do like to stay active as a fan and cheer on some of my favorite teams such as the Packers, Cubs, and Spurs and our home state college teams (Cyclones and Hawkeyes). I also spend 3 to 4 days a week working out at Orangetheory Fitness (my girlfriend, Kelsi, is a studio manager). Lastly, we recently added Maci, a Cavapoo puppy, to our little family. She is 4 months old and keeps us busy!
