Drew Mansell, CPA

Tax Manager

Drew joined Harris CPAs in 2022 after a move from North Carolina, where he spent 5 years working for a large national firm. There he managed tax compliance and consulting projects for entities ranging from multinational billion dollar companies to medium to large family owned businesses. He enjoys working primarily with closely held family businesses, helping them navigate the complexities between entity level and individual tax, as well as some estate planning and wealth management strategies. Most recently, he has focused on taking an in-depth look and analyzing newly available tax elections for S-Corporations and Partnerships, and strategically applying these to his clients to save them tens of thousands of dollars, while reducing the number of state returns they have to file. He also brings in knowledge of the manufacturing, retail, construction and real estate industries. Drew came to Harris, excited to bring more experience to complex tax engagements, offer insight on the firm’s processes, and to be a part of Harris’ continued growth.

Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Drew wanted to be an attorney growing up but then decided that a career in accounting was more suitable to his goals for a professional career. He then traded in a path of interpreting the laws of government for a path in interpreting the tax code of the IRS and never looked back. In college, Drew was the President of two student organizations and as a result is proud to say he has now been quoted in the Wall Street Journal. When not cheering on his alma mater, the Alabama Crimson Tide, you can find Drew traveling around the globe, on the golf course, or eating sushi. He has been to 30 countries, and hopes to keep adding to that number, with a unique goal of keeping it higher than his age throughout his life. Drew was just recently married to his lovely wife, Anna, and looks forward to starting a family soon.
