John Shipp, CPA

Partner—Audit and Advisory Services

John began his career auditing non-profits and governmental entities with a great local Chattanooga firm where, in addition to learning audit and accounting, he learned about small business and culture. John moved on to work with two of the largest regional firms in Chattanooga with a focus on manufacturing and distribution, construction, and development, and also gained experience in auditing employee benefit plans and other industries. Here at Market Street Partners, John oversees audit and assurance services, including audits, reviews, compilations, and preparations, as well as agreed upon procedures, forecasts, and projections.

“I love the upbeat professional and proactive culture at Market Street Partners, as well as the dynamic challenges and opportunities we have,” John said. “I also love the industries and clients that we work with and being valued as a partner with our clients’ businesses, rather than a necessity or commodity.”

In his free time, John enjoys playing golf, mountain biking, sports, and traveling with his wife.
