By Katherine Deck-Portillo, Administrative Assistant
Dylan Boss was proud when he got his first nameplate at ADKF in 2011. At the time he was just an administrative intern with the sole responsibility to scan in client documents into the system. Over the past nine years, he has taken on more responsibilities and his nameplate has changed. He moved from the administrative department into tax as an intern. He was then promoted to a full-time staff member once he finished his baseball career at the University of Incarnate Word (UIW) in June 2014. UIW is where he graduated from in December of 2014 with both his Bachelors in Business Administration and Master of Science in Accounting. When Dylan acquired his CPA license, it opened the door for him to move into a senior staff position and eventually into management, where he is currently a Senior Tax Manager.
Outside of ADKF, Dylan is married to his high school sweetheart, Jordan, and together they have three children. Their favorite card game is Monopoly Deal. If they aren’t playing that, the family might be outside running around or inside watching movies and playing with Barbies. On Sunday mornings, the whole family gets up to go to church together. During busy season, staff will generally put in fifty to sixty hours a week, but this does not deter Dylan from spending time with his family. He will still leave the office at 5:00PM to have dinner with his family and put his kids to bed before returning to the office to finish his work.
Dylan has grown a lot in his career at ADKF, from gaining technical expertise to personal development. He has watched managers and partners and has learned how to utilize criticism, be responsible when things go astray, and empathize with colleagues. He has refined his skill at ADKF because of the opportunities to work with varying and diverse clients and not just being a number to management. In his words, “I’m excited to continue and watch the growth and the transition to the next generation.”
