Bruce is driven to be more than an accountant to his clients. “I want to serve clients the way they should be served…as a business advisor who helps them make prudent business sense out of the numbers.”

Providing services to emerging, middle-market and closely held businesses, Bruce manages, coordinates and performs audits and reviews of privately held companies in various industries, including manufacturing, distribution, service, software and staffing companies. He also manages audits of not-for-profit organizations and audits in accordance with governmental auditing standards.

As the Transactions Practice Leader, Bruce has conducted numerous due diligence and systems consultation engagements of various sizes and complexity, primarily for manufacturing, service and distribution companies. He leads the firm’s software & technology industry group, working with start-ups and growing tech companies at every phase of their life cycle, and he co-leads WBL’s staffing industry group.  He is active with the Georgia Staffing Association.

Bruce started his career interning for his father, an accountant who founded the firm Kanes Benator & Company in 1953. After college, he worked at Ernst & Young before joining the firm that now bears his name.

He is married to Deb and has two daughters.
