Background

“Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.” -George Lois

Clint joined Saville after graduating from Texas A&M University in 1983. Ten years later, he was admitted as a partner. He provides proactive tax planning and compliance services for individuals, corporate, partnerships, estate and trust clients. His expertise includes several industries including construction, real estate, professional services, oil and gas, and agriculture. Clint assists clients with entity formation, buying and selling businesses, management compensation and benefits, IRS matters, qualified and non- qualified plans, tax-free exchanges, mergers and liquidations.

Clint’s clients consider him to be much more than simply their accountant. He serves as a trusted business advisor. His goal-oriented approach makes a positive difference in his clients’ business success. He prides himself on creative thinking and constantly searches for better and faster methods of solving problems.

Since 2006, Clint’s integral leadership has guided the firm into the 21st century with consistent, increased revenue and human capital. Proof is in the fact that the Dallas Business Journal has recognized Saville as one of the top 25 accounting firms in Dallas for the past seven consecutive years.

Clint and his wife, Glee, live in Kaufman. In his spare time, he enjoys serving at their church, spending time with family and traveling.
