Spencer Mercer is the newest member at KraftCPAs PLLC, where he joins a team of 17 other partners at the 63-year-old firm.
Mercer, a native of Greeneville, Tenn., began his accounting career with Kraft at its Nashville offices in 2009, shortly after receiving his master’s degree in accounting at the University of Tennessee. He joined the firm’s Chattanooga team in early 2021 following Kraft’s acquisition of Matheney Stees & Associates the previous year.
Mercer works extensively in the construction and manufacturing/wholesale/distribution industries with a focus on tax planning, consulting, and compliance.
“Spencer filled a significant role with our Nashville team, and he’s continued to thrive in Chattanooga,” KraftCPAs chief manager Vic Alexander said. “We’re eager to gain Spencer’s input and ideas – not only for us as a firm, but also as a neighbor in the community.”
Mercer is a member of the Chattanooga Regional Manufacturers Association, Associated General Contractors of East Tennessee, Chattanooga Area Chamber, UT Chattanooga Accounting Advisory Board, Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants, and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. He also has been active as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, the Special Olympics, and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. His spare time includes golf, hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities.
Spencer’s new role as a member with the firm began on November 1.
