Denise Gunter Hudson, CPA


Denise joined BPS in 1997 and was named shareholder in 2013. Denise serves businesses and their owners by providing compliance and planning in a wide range of industries, including real estate, construction, distribution, manufacturing, multi-state corporations, and telecommunications.

It’s encouraging to the younger female staff to see that BPS has female shareholders, and that it is possible to achieve that goal with our firm.

Denise assists clients with special projects, such as reconciliation of accounts and books, transitioning accounting personnel, and performing controller duties. She has also worked with clients on matters related to forensic accounting and employee fraud.

I enjoy the variety of work that comes on a daily basis and being able to assist clients when issues or day-to-day questions arise.

Prior to BPS, Denise worked as a staff accountant for Builders Transport, a trucking company, and as a property accountant for Boyd Management, a property management company.
