Josh Tyree, CPA

Partner, Chief Executive Officer


Josh’s public accounting career began at a top ten national firm, where he specialized in audit and assurance, tax, and internal controls. He joined Harris CPAs in 2008 and has continued to provide audit and assurance, tax, and business consulting services to organizations in Idaho and across the country. His experience in construction and engineering, nonprofit and government, real estate, and technology industries has proved invaluable to the firm. Josh’s first and foremost priority is to help his clients understand their numbers, to address issues and opportunities as they arise, and to make informed decisions. Josh truly believes that success is only bred through genuine and trusting relationships, something he strives to build with each and every one of his clients.

Growing up in Boise, Josh has a strong attachment to the Treasure Valley community. He returned to Idaho after attending college at UC Santa Barbara, where he met his wife, and working in Southern California for nearly a decade. Josh is now actively involved with local organizations such as the Idaho Youth Ranch, the Boise Metro Chamber, the Idaho AGC and Friends of Idaho Public Television. He also contributes his time to the Idaho Elite basketball program and is currently coaching his two boys in various youth sports year-round.

Josh enjoys travelling and rafting the beautiful rivers of Idaho with his family and friends. When he’s not on adventures, Josh is that person who actually reads the non-fiction informational books that many of us say we should read (but never do): The Advantage by Patrick Lencioni, Start with Why by Simon Sinek, and Leadership and Self-Deception by the Arbinger Institute, to name a few.
