Associate Mandy Prather loves helping those who often get overlooked in the deal-making industry—people who want to make life better not just for themselves and their families, but for others around them. She knows that when she’s matching a good buyer to a good seller, she’s also protecting the integrity of the business itself, along with its employees and their wider community. As the granddaughter, daughter, and sister of veterans, Mandy is especially proud of The DVS Group’s commitment to helping veterans step into ownership.
Although it’s not traditional for a CPA to move to a deal-making firm, Mandy’s role at DVS allows her to merge her accounting background with a desire to form valuable relationships with her clients. DVS’s industry-agnostic approach lets her apply her skills to a wide variety of businesses, from construction businesses to ecommerce and everything in between.
Mandy attended high school at St. Teresa’s Academy in Kansas City before studying accounting at Kansas State University. She earned a master’s degree at University of Missouri – Kansas City and became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) shortly after. Before connecting with DVS, she was a financial statement auditor at a national public accounting firm with an emphasis in the manufacturing, distribution and technology industries. When she’s not helping DVS clients succeed, she’s working out at Orangetheory or seeking out novel food, drinks and adventures in new places.
