Brandon Rosenthal

When given a choice between cats and dogs, Brandon will go with dogs every time. “You could say that I’m a dog person,” he says. Like most, he appreciates their trustworthiness, loyalty and reliability—traits he happens to share. As a partner in Froehling Anderson’s Business Consulting Department and leader of the firm’s Assurance Services, Brandon strives to be someone his clients—primarily business owners—can turn to. “My clients trust me to answer certain questions,” he says. “It feels great to be able to help them out and, of course, reduce their stress.”

Brandon first discovered his flair for accounting in high school and stuck with it through college. After graduating in 2005, he worked in private industry for one year before coming to Froehling Anderson in 2006. “I love that each day brings a new challenge,” he says of his career choice. Regardless of the challenge, he’s known for getting the job done—right. In his free time, Brandon can usually be found hanging out with his wife, children, and their beloved dog, Levi. He also enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing softball, watching movies, and attending local sporting events.

Joe Rubenstein

Accounting has intrigued Joe for as long as he can remember. As a child, he regularly overheard family members – several of whom are small business owners – speak highly of their accountants. When he found himself at the head of his college accounting class, he quickly realized it was the career for him. Drawn to the culture and proved to be a good fit, Joe joined the firm as a staff accountant in 2005. Since then, he has come to appreciate his profession even more, “Every day is a different story,” he says. “And it’s always something new and interesting.”

As a partner in the firm’s Tax Department, Joe prides himself on being, as he put it, “someone who people can lean on and trust.” Having spent his first seven years at Froehling Anderson as a “generalist”, his varied background allows him to assist clients with issues of all shapes and sizes. Outside of the office, Joe enjoys being there for his family for trips to the baseball field, beach and zoo. In the fall, he spends his Sundays watching football and rooting for his Fantasy Football team.

Gail Thompson

A natural people-person, Gail’s face lights up at the prospect of making a new friend. Which is why it comes as no surprise that, when reflecting on her 20-plus-year accounting career, it’s the friendships—with both clients and colleagues—she values most. After starting her accounting career in the private industry, Gail switched to public accounting in 2008 and joined Froehling Anderson in 2012. As an audit partner in the firm’s Business Consulting Department, she applies her past experience as a controller for an international company to her clients’ businesses. “I know what my clients go through to prepare for an audit,” she says. “Having this understanding allows me to better answer questions and, of course, empathize with their situation.”

These days, her favorite new friends are her two young granddaughters. Raised in a family of boys and the mother of two sons, she says she’s excited to finally be able to “buy pink.” She and her husband also enjoy taking trips to their cabin in northern Minnesota, boating, fishing and reading.

Steven B. Wagner

Steve found his way into accounting in the late ‘80s and excelled quickly in his accounting career and soon became the leader of a local CPA firm’s tax practice. After serving in this role for 20 years, he joined Froehling Anderson in 2009. A partner within the firm’s Tax Services Department, Steve serves as a specialist on complex issues ranging from estate to partnership taxation. Known for his taxation expertise, Steve is regularly sought after to lead seminars on current and complex tax law for professional associations and private vendors throughout the country.

For Steve, helping his clients and colleagues understand complex, technical tax and business issues is what it’s all about. Which probably has a lot to do with why he was named a ‘Super CPA’ by both Minnesota Law & Politics and Twin Cities Business Monthly. He is a recipient of the 2017 AICPA Outstanding Discussion Leader Award which honors highly rated instructors nationwide. Outside of the office, Steve keeps his performance skills sharp by continuing to play the occasional trumpet gig. He says his favorite activities are music, biking, golf, and travel.

David B. Wasmuth

Growing up, Dave wanted to be a teacher. Although he ultimately found his calling as an accountant, his 40 year career has centered on guiding others — clients and colleagues — to success. Dave joined Froehling Anderson in 1979 and is a senior partner in the firm’s Business Consulting Department. He relies upon his past experience, which includes serving as managing partner from 1997 to 2004, to help clients navigate strategic business opportunities. He is involved in the firm’s continuing education program and, through his involvement with Pecos River Learning Center, has conducted several seminars throughout the U.S. and Europe.
For Dave, the appeal of accounting mirrors that of teaching. “Accounting gives me the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others,” he says. Outside of the accounting realm, Dave makes a positive impact through his faith, family (wife and son) and nature photography. He is also an avid cyclist.
