Meet Our Team

Meet our Principals:

James J. Houlihan, Jr., CPA, CVA

I am a graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington started my career at the formerly renowned accounting firm of Arthur Andersen & Co., (Atlanta office).

Professionally, I am currently a partner in Houlihan, LLP and a principal in Houlihan Asset Management, LLC, a wealth management firm. As a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Valuation Analyst, areas of expertise include financial and tax planning, valuation of closely held business, succession planning, and mergers and acquisitions.

My wife Ruth Ann & I have four children (Logan, Colin, Mallory & Maggie), all of which are IU graduates. We are proud that they are all self sufficient, taxpaying citizens although I seem to have picked up a few pro bono tax returns in the process.  And now that the 529 plans are depleted, my energies are focused on filling up the 401k plan. Outside the office, I enjoy serving many of the worthwhile local nonprofits and tending to an aging golf game. Most days begin with an early morning walk accompanied by my four-legged buddies, Brogan and Gus.
