As the youngest of three brothers, Sam Pondrom learned early on how to work effectively as part of a team.  After graduating from Oklahoma State, an intrinsic sense of curiosity and a keen eye for details led Sam to work as an accountant for two Engineering-News Record top 40 construction firms.  It was here where he honed his ability to analyze complex issues and craft clear, concise answers.  Sam utilizes these skills to work in partnership with our clients to resolve their complex business and regulatory concerns in the most simple, straightforward way.

Outside of the office, Sam enjoys cooking, playing basketball, running, watching Oklahoma State football and Dallas Mavericks basketball, traveling, and trying new restaurants.  He also enjoys spending time with his family and friends.
