Marvin H. Willis

Smith + Howard PC
Smith + Howard Advisory LLC

Clients would be the core value that drives me and my group. I am constantly looking for new service lines to drive our growth within the Accounting and Advisory practice side of the firm. Knowing many of our services are non-recurring, I have to continue to focus on keeping the sales pipeline full to allow for continued year over year growth.

Marvin continually adds value for our clients by demonstrating management accounting expertise, determination and commitment to achieving sustainable business success.

Marvin joined our firm in 1999. He is a partner in charge of our Accounting and Advisory practice and oversees the firm’s Cyber Risk Management + Compliance solutions for clients. He is also a member of our Audit and Construction groups.

Prior to joining Smith + Howard, Marvin spent several years as CFO of a large Atlanta business. He has extensive experience in accounting, auditing, information systems, business management and consulting. Marvin’s background as CFO and his financial knowledge provides tremendous value to our clients in the areas of SOC engagements, internal control reviews, cyber risk management + compliance, corporate governance, general business advice, accounting and technology services.

Marvin and his wife live on Lake Lanier.
