Andrew Jason Sturm, better known as A.J., joined ATKG as a principal in August 2017 and became a partner in January 2019.

A.J. graduated with High Honors and a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Texas at Austin.  He has over 19 years of experience, 13 of which entailed running his own CPA firm. While his business acumen is broad, his areas of expertise are in financial statement reviews, business tax compliance, internal control analysis and litigation support.  From an industry perspective, A. J. has extensive experience in real estate, construction, professional services, retail, not-for-profits and foundations. A. J. is a member of the AICPA and Texas Society of CPAs.

His life outside the office was and is unique. He became a musician at the age of 16 and has played the guitar ever since.  During the summers of his college years, he worked on a farm during the day and played in a band in dance halls across Texas at night. But the real question is – does he know how to two-step?  Music tells a story, whether it has vocals or is instrumental. And A. J.’s favorite collection of musical  “stories” is Garth Brooks’ No Fences album, what has often been called “the greatest country album ever recorded.” He shares his love of music with his wife, Jennifer, and his four daughters.
