Bob Tankesley, MBA, CPA, CFP®
Director of Financial Planning
Bob Tankesley joined Marmo Financial Group in April 2023 as the Director of Financial Planning. He is a 4th generation entrepreneur and is especially passionate about helping business owners build value in their companies and plan their exits. Bob has earned a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from UNC Asheville (1995) and an MBA degree in Finance from Appalachian State University (1996). He also holds a commercial real estate license where he focuses on the industrial and medical sectors. Bob serves MFG clients as a Certified Financial Planner® (2003) and as a non-practicing Certified Public Accountant (2001).
Bob grew up in suburbs northeast of Atlanta and when he was younger vacationed in the mountains of western North Carolina...a place he will likely return to when he retires one day. He currently resides in Canton, GA with his wife Shannon and their five children, where they attend First Baptist Church of Woodstock. Bob enjoys spending as much time as possible time with his family as well as doing any outdoor activity involving the mountains.
Bob has known Scott Marmo since 2001 when they both served on the board of a local Young Life chapter in east Atlanta. After Scott left the Atlanta market, they kept in touch over the years while Bob operated his own tax and investment firm until 2013, then at that time Bob started selling companies in the lower midmarket and doing business valuations. He watched and became impressed with the growth and quality of firm Scott was building in the other regional markets that Bob wanted to serve. It seemed like a natural fit to help Scott add even more capabilities to Marmo Financial Group.
