Finding new direction and looking at things from the outside has always been one of Bruce Gardiner’s talents, in more than one aspect of life. When he’s not working, Bruce can be found with his family camping, riding ATVs and motorcycles, mountain biking, traveling, and scuba diving. From a business standpoint, Bruce knows the willingness to explore and take chances can develop into great opportunities. His capacity for being able to step outside of any situation and look at things differently creates vision and purpose.
Bruce has over 29 years of tax experience, beginning his career in 1985 with Price Waterhouse Coopers and spending 7 years in their Midland, Texas and Los Angeles, California offices. This experience gave Bruce a foundation for helping clients resolve tax issues in a professional manner. He then worked as the controller of two private companies for 4 years in the construction and employee leasing industries. This gave Bruce the unique perspective of how to help businesses with tax and financial challenges from the inside of a business. He can now help current clients resolve issues by exploring alternatives from different angles.
Bruce is now the managing partner of Larson, Swan + Gardiner’s Las Vegas location. He has extensive experience in business and personal tax planning and preparation as well as litigation support and corporation financial management. Bruce’s educational and professional accomplishments include:
