Dave Bodiford

What year did you join Scott and Company?

I joined Scott and Company in July 2014.

Where did you go to college?

I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1999.

Why did you choose Scott and Company?

Initially, I worked at my father’s firm, Clifton D. Bodiford, CPA. We merged with Scott and Company in July of 2014.  We chose to join Scott and Company because it is a growing firm that offers the accessibility to clients of a small firm, with the vast resources of a big firm, especially with the BDO Alliance.  

What do you enjoy most about living in Columbia/Greenville?

Columbia is an affordable place to live that offers a small town feel, with lots of big city activities.  The area offers many fun festivals, as well as great restaurants and nightlife.

If you could have any super power what would it be and why?

If I could have any super power, I’d really like to be able to predict the future, so I can react accordingly.  I consider myself very risk-averse and routine-focused, but adaptable.  Knowing what’s on the road ahead would make preparing for the future a little easier!
