CEO and Founder Russ McClendon

Russ McClendonRuss McClendon has a special knack for saving business owners time and money by finding just the right software for their special business needs. Along with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Texas State in 1984, Russ has compiled over 27 years of experience in various industries. Plus, has advanced certifications in and knowledge of several different accounting systems that enable him to quickly understand the client’s business and deliver what they need in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Russ has been implementing mid-market accounting solutions since 1997. Implementations have included clients in the distribution, manufacturing, services, and investment management industries. He has experience with a wide range of mid-market solutions, including Intacct, Epicor, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions. The scope of these engagements vary widely from a simple GL, AP and AR setup to full integrations with third party products for distribution, manufacturing, and employee time clock integrations for over 1,000 employees.

Russ’s accounting software certifications include:

  • Intacct Business Partner and Certified Consultant
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP
  • Certified Fishbowl Inventory Reseller
  • Certified QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions
  • Advanced Certified QuickBooks® ProAdvisor
  • Certified QuickBooks Point of Sale
  • Certified Method Consultant
  • Certified Method Account Manager

When choosing accounting software for clients, Russ’s goal is for business owners to be able to manage their business and get the information they need without having to change their business to meet the needs of the accounting software. After one of his favorite systems conversions from a cranky old proprietary system, Russ enjoyed hearing his client say, “Thank you for giving my wife back to me!” Whether he meant wife or life or both, that’s exactly our goal at Trustantial.

When Russ is not installing accounting systems, you might find him enjoying some juicy ribs at Coker’s, playing softball, cheering on the Cowboys, or watching the Texas Rangers win another one. He is also pretty handy with his smart phone, accessing client files and even their computers when he is not at his computer.
