Dave Zenker


Dave Zenker

Born in Bay City, Texas in 1954, Dave had an typical childhood in Oklahoma.  It was filled with:

  • School
  • Work
  • Outdoor Activities

It seems like my whole childhood revolved around trying to make a buck.

You Know.. The More Things Change… 

Anyway.. I graduated from High School in 1973 and immediately left for Marine Corps Boot Camp.  Four months and 16 million push-ups later I was PFC Zenker.  One of the “The Few… The Proud… The Marines.” 

While in the Corps I traveled to:

  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Philippines
  • Spain
  • Other Undisclosed Foreign Locations

and a wide variety of US locations.

Six years later I was honorably discharged from my last post with the Inspector Instructor Staff in Topeka, Kansas.

While in Topeka I met my wife and earned a Bachelors of Accounting from Washburn University.

Upon graduation in 1982 I returned to Texas looking for work.  I was employed by a large coatings manufacturer and held a number of posts at that firm.  During my time with them I was promoted to their headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio.  While there, I earned a Masters of Accountancy and Financial Information Systems from Cleveland State University and passed the CPA Exam.

In 1989 we returned to Texas.  Upon arrival, I obtained my Texas CPA License.  Then, I hung my shingle served a wide variety of clients as Dave Zenker, CPA.

After several years in practice, I returned to the corporate world.  The last post I held was Director, Membership Acquisition for a large hospitality firm.

During this time my Wife was attending and ultimately graduated from Vet School at Texas A&M.

To this day….. the saga continues.
