Meet Cody


"Raise the issues before they become problems," is Cody's mantra, and the driving philosophy behind the proactive, no-nonsense approach he takes to his client work.

Cody joined Mowery & Schoenfeld's tax team in November 2012, after graduating from NIU and interning with a Big Four accounting firm. He has been working with construction contractors, real estate developers, and other flow-through entities to stay ahead in their tax strategies ever since.

In addition to helping his clients plan ahead, Cody plays an active role in staff recruitment and development at the Firm. You can catch him at career fairs in the fall and spring, and it's not an uncommon sight around the office to see him in a mentor meeting with one of the new tax team members.

On a day off, Cody might be playing his bass or guitar; remodeling his house; hunting, fishing, or camping in his hometown; or enjoying a Billy Joel album with his fiance and their dog, Lady.

In your own words, what’s different about Mowery & Schoenfeld?

There is a constant push to improve - no one is resting on their laurels.

What is your hidden talent?

Repurposing; I love taking something old and converting it into a modern, practical household item. For example, I recently repurposed a cigar box into a guitar.
