Joshua Kirk

Chief Technology Officer

Often times when looking at technology, the focus is on the software or the computer, but I focus on our people – both our internal staff and clients – and how we can help them succeed and excel. Our tools can help them work smarter and improve our everyday tasks to make their work easier and more impactful.

Joshua applies his deep knowledge of information technology and systems to benefit the whole of Smith + Howard’s business and clients.

Joshua joined Smith + Howard in 2016 as Information Technology Manager and became Chief Technology Officer in 2021. Prior to joining Smith + Howard, he was at a national employment law firm as their IT Manager. Joshua started his career in Atlanta as a consultant working with professional services firms in the architectural, engineering, financial services and legal industries. After working with a number of national architectural and engineering firms, he moved to an international law firm as the Manager of Global Enterprise Messaging.

Joshua and his husband Scot live in West Cobb, where they volunteer with local Atlanta charities and outreach programs.
