Tim McLain has been married to his wife for as long as he has worked in public accounting. 43 years to be exact. He’s been devoted to both, as well as his family, team members and community. He’s lived a life of service and those he’s served have benefited greatly, not the least of which are his clients. Tim’s goal is to be his clients’ first and most trusted resource for any accounting, business or tax needs. He’s helped these clients in the areas of business and individual tax preparation and planning, business and estate planning, as well as business valuation support and consulting. He’s served businesses across various industries, including manufacturing, real estate, oil and gas, as well as about every type of small business you could imagine.
Tim earned his accounting degree from Ohio University and his CPA license from the state of Ohio. He has served McLain, Hill, Rugg & Associates as a partner and Vice President for decades, managing both the Zanesville and Newark offices, prior to merging forces with Dark Horse.
Outside of his service to clients, Tim is a board member of Park National Corporation, Perry County Community Foundation, and Muskingum Valley Miracle League. He is a founding member of Zanesville Daybreak Rotary and has formerly served as the president of both the Muskingum County Community Foundation and Muskingum County Library System. Outside of his suit-and-tie endeavors, Tim enjoys unwinding via a round of golf with friends, dancing with his wife and family fishing trips in Canada.
Suzi Drennen is the most knowledgeable, conscientious, and responsive CPA I have ever known—which is why I’ve stayed with her for more than 10 years. She is honest, has always gotten back to me quickly even at the height of tax season, and has saved me thousands of dollars over the years. The icing on the cake is that Suzi’s easy to work with and on top of that, a great person! She and her firm are tops!
