ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM

DAVID RABINOWITZ

Operations Manager

David Rabinowitz started his professional career as a small business owner after his stint at UT here in Austin. His background with computer hardware and software during that time made him a good fit for several technology, support and project management positions with companies like USAA, Southwest Research Institute and the Armstrong Laboratory of the U.S. Air Force. He came on in 2015 as Office Manager to fill an immediate need, and has found that the environment of Sweeten CPA and the day to day interactions he has with our clients gives him immense satisfaction and the opportunity to exercise his wit and passion for problem solving. He is also one heck of a poker player.
