Branden grew up in Waupun, Wisconsin. He received a degree in Finance from UW-Oshkosh as well as a degree in Accounting from UW-Whitewater. After graduation he moved to Phoenix, Arizona with his wife, Kaytlin. Branden and Kaytlin returned to Wisconsin in 2019, buying a house in Fredonia, WI.
Branden is part of the tax department at Vesta, focusing on tax returns, sales tax and payroll. He relates tax returns to a puzzle, saying: “I like to find all the missing pieces and put them together.” Branden hopes to continue to develop his leadership skills and confidence in the future – although we already think he is pretty great!
Branden enjoys spending time with Gertrude and Leo (his dog and cat, respectively) in his free time. He also loves hunting, watching/playing sports, and simply being outside.
