Employee Spotlight - James Burnett
This edition of the FairShare Advisors Employee Spotlight features client manager James Burnett. This two-year member of our team thinks the best part of working at FairShare Advisors is using his traditional accounting background to creatively problem-solve forensic and valuation issues in a non-traditional litigation setting. James earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting degree from his alma mater, the University of North Georgia. We invite you to take a few minutes and get to know James better.
