“Work hard — as hard as you can, as long as it takes. Then go enjoy your leisure time.”

John Sweeterman is a walking legacy.

The son of two accountants, John drew a double portion of his penchant for crunching numbers while keeping family his top priority. “I’m one of the lucky ones. My parents guided me in the right direction,” he says, recalling his mother’s instruction to take accounting courses at St. Joseph’s College in Indiana. After graduation, John began honing his craft at a national accounting firm. He also earned an MBA from the University of Dayton.

A lifetime of accounting, 35 years of marriage, and four children later, John has proven himself a natural leader not only to his own family, but to the family of Flagel Huber Flagel. “When I first came to FHF, everyone was eager to help with the transition, and they treat their clients the same way,” he says. “They bend over backwards.”

John’s seamless transition into the firm is a testament to the FHF team’s innate grasp of the courtesy and adaptability vital to building lifelong professional relationships. John himself strives to exhibit such traits when meeting the needs of closely-held businesses and clients in manufacturing, wholesale distribution, retail, and the health care industry.

John’s service-oriented leadership extends to his community as well. One is as likely to find him setting up chairs for an educational children’s event as presiding over its board meeting afterward. Over the years John has served in leadership positions on several charitable boards. He coaches for the St. Charles School and serves on the St. Charles Parish Finance Committee and Athletic Commission.

As an FHF partner, John looks for ways to make a positive difference in the lives of colleagues and clients. He is a firm believer that treating others well brings out the best in them, and in their work — a theory supported by experience: “They have bright people here. They keep you on top of your game.”
