About The Owner

Brent Blackburn, Founder and CEO, has been managing and doing the bookkeeping for small businesses for over 15 years. He started out as office manager and bookkeeper in several small retail and consulting companies before becoming general manager at a janitorial services company serving clients in Utah and California. There he did all the human resources, scheduling, payroll, and bookkeeping for a company with $5 million in annual revenue. During this time he also learned Spanish and became fluent. After four years, he moved to an excavating and construction company as office manager of the company with $3 million in annual revenue at its peak. There he also performed all human resource, payroll, and bookkeeping functions. He also implemented full job costing capabilities and reporting for the company. His skills with Davis-Bacon certified payroll reports also allowed the company to win and successfully complete several lucrative government contracts that required such reporting. When the great recession hit the company hard, it became necessary for them to downsize. Brent seized the opportunity and in 2011 formed Keeping Books & Computing Consulting LLC (the old name), with the purpose of serving small businesses of all kinds with their bookkeeping, payroll, and advisory needs. He obtained certifications in all the accounting programs he has used over the years, including all versions of QuickBooks and Xero. He is a member of the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers. Clients include consulting businesses, non-profit organizations, web companies, a venture capital firm, and construction contractors. Brent has shortened time to get paid, increased profits, and/or increased owners’ peace of mind for all of his clients.

In his free time he loves to spend time in the garden, camping in the great outdoors, and building and repairing computers. All of his free time is supervised by his dog, Jenny.
