Born in west Texas, Brint is a seventh-generation Irish American whose ancestors emigrated from Tipperary and fought in the Revolutionary War. “My common link to generations of hard-working, risk-taking Irish that dreamed big and achieved amazing things inspires my determination to revolutionize the tax services industry in pursuit of building a billion dollar global brand in tax,” he says.
