About

Who says music and accounting don’t mix? Pete not only plays the drums in his off-hours, he whistles while he works.

But he’s not just whistling in the wind—his clients consider him a true advisor and a member of their corporate families. They value his experience with specialized audits as well as his ability to coordinate complex projects. When Pete is not working on complex projects, he and his wife, Kelli, enjoy hiking, running, and camping – just about anything outdoors.

Project-management tools developed by Pete are still in use firm wide and he has persistently championed the use of cutting-edge technology to help Clark Nuber professionals uncover insights for clients. In order to compensate for his whistling habit, he serves time on the company rock band.
