Kirk Eck – Shareholder

Endurance, commitment, and a competitive fire keep Kirk Eck on top of his game both in his profession and as an elite athlete. As the 5-time winner of LOTOJA, the longest one-day bike race in the United States (hyperlink), Kirk has a reputation for training harder and smarter than his competition.

Kirk has the same commitment to excellence in his professional endeavors. A 13-year veteran of the Cook Martin team, Kirk is a Shareholder and the Director of Operations for our Logan, UT office. Kirk serves clients in the medical, retail, manufacturing, service and agriculture industries.

One of Kirk’s specialties is the medical and dental profession. This niche focus allows him to provide real value to his clients as he identifies and fosters best-practices in these industries. Whether it is complex tax planning and entity structure or operational ideas to improve profitability, Kirk has a reputation for having the answers these clients demand.

Prior to his entry into the field of accounting, Kirk spent 8 years as a manager of a well-known retail sporting goods store. This experience has given him a background into retail and wholesale industries and the tax consequences of each. He understands the time constraints on business owners and brings knowledge and expertise quickly to any situation.

Just as Kirk has diversified his athletic endeavors, he has expertise in many accounting areas including: business and personal taxation, entity choice and design, accounting systems, estate planning, pension plan design and taxation, business succession planning and business consulting.

Kirk is as passionate to see his clients succeed financially as he is in his own athletic endeavors.

Kirk and his wife RaLee have been married for 20 years. They have 4 children between the ages of 6 and 15. They enjoy spending time together and supporting each other in all their many activities.
