Founding Partner

bert@fw-cpa.com

As one of the founding partners of Faulk & Winkler, Bert has more than 45 years of experience in public accounting. His responsibilities involve providing organizational accounting and tax issue guidance to governmental and healthcare organizations. He also provides certified accounting advice and consulting to a variety of industries.

The depth of knowledge in accounting principles that Bert provides to his clients is just one of the many reasons they have remained loyal to him over the years. Bert has often felt he should be the one paying for the opportunity to work with so many worthwhile people, prospects and organizations. 

Bert’s passion for accounting developed while taking classes at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Shortly after graduating, he was drafted into the US Army where he served for one year and nine months. The military taught him the value of communication at all levels of an organization. After the army, he joined the firm of Bourgeois, Bennet, Thokey & Hickey where he spent the next fourteen years. 

At a young age Bert learned the importance of working hard, taking responsibility for your actions and treating others with respect and kindness. These qualities have created the base for his professional success and positively impacted the way he interacts with his clients and colleagues. He takes a genuine interest in his clients and truly listens to their needs and concerns. He is always focused on helping them improve their financial outlook. 

A Louisiana native, Bert currently lives in Baton Rouge with his wife, Tina. While away from the office, he enjoys traveling and spending time with his friends and family.

“My goal is to proactively impact the well-being of those I serve. To accomplish this, I listen to the hopes and concerns of my clients so I can tailor a plan specific to their needs.”
