Partner

Aaron brings fresh new qualities to our growing Justin, Clasen & Company Ltd. team. Clients can appreciate his honest, straightforward approach and his wealth of knowledge and expertise to help clients reach their personal and professional goals.

Aaron is native to the Brainerd Lakes Area. He earned his degree at Central Lakes College and St. Cloud State University- Summa Cum Laude. He was a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. In addition, one of Aaron’s greatest professional accomplishments was passing all four parts of the CPA exam on his first attempt. Not only did he pass on the first try, but he also achieved the highest score possible on Audit.

For Aaron, building relationships and becoming a trusted advisor to clients is what he strives for. He has built his rapport with clients and team members based on his authenticity and integrity. Clients can most appreciate that Aaron is a straight shooter. What you see is what you get.

Aaron’s specialities at the firm include:

  • Individual and business tax returns
  • Non-profit auditing and tax returns

Aaron is very passionate about sharing his knowledge to inspire and encourage entrepreneurship in youth. He has been an active board member with Junior Achievement since 2014, where he teaches students about financial literacy and provides them the skills necessary to prepare for college.

Most importantly, Aaron is a great family man to his wife, Carrie, and their two daughters, Sophie, age 8, and Lauren, age 5. As a family, they love spending their summer months on the lake fishing, swimming, agate hunting, and pontooning. While the general population would agree that Accountants should stick to accounting, Aaron claims to have a hidden talent for woodworking and likes to spend his off-season renovating their family’s historic home. He’s no Chip Gaines but his handy-man skills sure put the rest of our team to shame.

What do you bring to the Justin, Clasen & Company, Ltd. team?

Leadership and a creative perspective that will keep the firm innovative and moving in the right direction.
