Robert Cook, ’12
Manager, Huntsville, AL
I chose to work at Draffin Tucker because of the company’s atmosphere and because of the many different opportunities I knew I’d have working with a firm of its size.
One of the many great things about Draffin Tucker is the willingness of everyone to help you learn and grow as a professional. My greatest fear about going into public accounting as an auditor was that I wouldn’t be able to catch on quickly to the software, company policies, and how to audit. Everyone at Draffin Tucker has gone above and beyond in helping me learn, and develop as a professional.
Atlanta is a great place to live. There is always something going on, and the restaurant selection is virtually endless. There is something here for everyone.
My time at Alabama was great, and I love to relive my experiences there by getting together with friends and watching the games. And, of course, going back to Tuscaloosa is always fun.

As an experienced hire, I chose Draffin Tucker because of its outstanding reputation.
The firm is very well-respected in the healthcare industry. Also, I have known several of the Draffin Tucker partners for many years.
The people of Draffin Tucker are both friendly and professional. The firm has a one firm, one family atmosphere.
Atlanta is a great place to live and work. The Falcons, Braves and Hawks give us professional sports year round. I really enjoy attending some of the Chick-fil-A collegiate football games played at the Georgia Dome. Alabama has played in the kickoff classic twice in the past few years and is scheduled to appear again the next two years. I also love the many great restaurants the city offers.
I attend local Alabama alumni chapter meetings when possible and I have served as president of the Atlanta Red Elephant Club (athletic booster club). I also enjoy attending football games in Tuscaloosa each fall with friends and family.
