Bright!Tax Founder and CEO, Gregory Dewald

For years I've had the good fortune to travel and to live abroad. I have been able to see many countries and many cultures and the common thread through every adventure abroad is I wanted to do more - to see more. I've been fortunate in business and have been honored many times with awards and commendations for having an acumen that has been recognized and lauded by my peers. Bright!Tax is the meeting point and culmination of my two great passions - exceeding our clients' expectations and experiencing the wider world.
