Jeff Chism

Jeff joined Brown Kinion & Company in 2002 after spending years in the banking industry. He’s the acting managing partner and has been a CPA since 1982. In addition to providing tax and financial guidance to both our individual and corporate clients, Jeff leads our efforts in employer retirement plan audits. 

After leaving Tulsa for a few years while he worked in Lawton and Fort Smith, Arkansas, Jeff moved back and needed a job. He was offered a position with Brown Kinion & Company and has stayed on for more than a decade.

The son of a minister, Jeff moved to the Tulsa area at age 7 and attended Berryhill High School. He earned two degrees from the University of Tulsa, BS in Accounting and an MBA.

After college, Jeff joined a local bank as a controller. From there he held chief financial officer and controller positions for various companies in the banking, manufacturing and construction industries in both the public company and private sector.

Jeff says his unique background gives him “a broader perspective on finance in general.”

He’s been active in Tulsa Little League for years, since his sons were young, and is the acting treasurer. He’s also involved with the Bixby Rotary Club and is the treasurer of both Wine, Eats and Easels and the Arts Council of Broken Arrow.

He and his wife have five children between them, ranging in age from 19-26. He’s a fan of TU athletics and enjoys watching sports in his spare time.
