David Scheumann, CPA (NC #34061, IN #CP19000021)
David is originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, and he earned his accounting degree from Butler University in 1987. At the beginning of his career, he worked for both local and national CPA firms in audit, tax and feasibility studies. Growing up in Indianapolis gave David a passion for racing at an early age, and he spent a lot of time at the Indy 500 and even helped out with some race teams.
In 1991, David was able to combine his skills in accounting with his interest in racing and became the controller for a local Indy car team. David later became the controller for Newman Haas Racing, one of the premier IndyCar teams in the early and mid 90's. While at Newman Haas, David developed a computerized inventory control system for use at the race tracks, greatly expanded the company's use of the research and development tax credit, and developed a budgeting and forecasting system for several Haas owed companies. After a chance meeting with NASCAR driver Ricky Rudd at the first Brickyard 400, David became Ricky's general manager and his family moved to North Carolina. While at Rudd's team, he was the first to develop a track-side bar code point of sale and inventory control system for souvenir sales at the NASCAR races.
More recently, David was president of Keystone Marketing, an Advance based sports marketing firm with a focus in NASCAR, IndyCar and the PGA Tour. During his seven year tenure at Keystone, he worked on ground breaking marketing campaigns including those in the pharmaceutical industry. David also worked hand in hand with high level executives at Fortune 500 companies. After Keystone, David worked for a regional accounting and financial firm and turned his focus more local. While at the firm, David established relationships with both businesses and individuals in the Piedmont Triad area.
David and his wife, Becky, relocated to Advance, North Carolina in 2004 to ease David's long commute from the Lake Norman area and, unexpectedly, but quickly, fell in love with the countryside. After a couple of years, they stumbled onto a piece of land for sale deep in the woods along the Yadkin River. After living in densely populated metropolitan areas of Indianapolis, Chicago and even Lake Norman, they decided the house in the woods was the right place. They now share it with their daughter and seven dogs, five of which are rescues. David works with the Border Collies in the sport of dog agility, and Becky runs or walks with all of the dogs daily.
