“The people of FHF — they brought me back.”

Chris McCaskey loves accounting. Whether you’re the subject of an audit or a colleague working with him, that is sure to be your foremost impression of Chris.

Accounting made an equally memorable first impression on him. “I took an accounting course my senior year of high school, and I knew that I was going to be a CPA,” he says. “On day one at Cedarville University, I declared my major and never looked back.”

Naturally, Chris’s enthusiasm and focus led him to Flagel Huber Flagel upon graduating. “July of ’97 was a big month,” he recalls, noting that he and his wife, Becky, were married within weeks of his start date. Seventeen years later, both knots remain happily tied — although there was a period when Chris’s absence from Flagel helped define the values he holds today.

After his first year at FHF, Chris spent the next eight climbing the ladder elsewhere. Then, still curious “to see the other side of accounting,” Chris signed on as a controller for a short stint. When he returned to Flagel as an Assurance Manager in 2012, Chris brought a perspective to audits that can be learned only by those who experience them under pressure.

“Now that I’m back on the public accounting side, I am better equipped to serve my clients. I understand their perspective and concerns, as well as the stress they are under on a day to day basis.

Chris’s empathy is not limited to his clients; many have benefitted from his careful training and personal commitment. Nor have Chris’s challenges been confined to accounting. His faith, his marriage, and his teenage sons have been strengthened by his battle with cancer, the remaining traces of which are a wiser perspective on life and a grateful spirit.

Chris’s experiences have further clarified for him the importance of personal relationships, a part of life he has always appreciated but now values even more. Perhaps that’s why, when asked why he returned to Flagel, Chris needs no time to think: “The people of FHF — they brought me back.”
