Brian E. Deibler – Deibler CPA

Point Blank

Brian Deibler

I became a CPA because I followed my older sister to college and she was an accounting major, so I decided to become an accounting major. 

In my opinion, everyone should be mindful that we are all different. At the same time, we should be mindful that not one answer is the solution to one problem. 

My idea of the perfect “lazy summer day” includes being at the beach, an adult beverage and letting my feet sink in the sand as the waves come and go. 

If I wrote a book, it would be about taxes and business, including perhaps how self-employed individuals can use LLCs, making an S-corporation election to save on tax bills. 

My favorite song is “One Love” by Bob Marley, the anthem of the 20th century and will always be relevant, a song that unites and unifies all. 

Something I would like to do again is scuba diving. My wife and I went on our honeymoon and it was exhilarating. 

I believe one of life’s greatest lessons is the “Golden Rule.” We just have to be kind and understanding. 

My favorite place to dine in Newport News is Circa 1918 in Hilton Village, always a great experience.

Something that always captures my attention is live music. 

My alma mater is Radford University, the best of both worlds as a college experience. Small class sizes and specialized professors really provided an exceptional education. 

A charity whose cause I support is Rotary International, and more locally, the Warwick at City Center Rotary Club and the Warwick Rotary Foundation. I also give a huge shout-out to Steve Kast and the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula for their wonderful work.
