03 Sep Dyson Ingley
Dyson supervises the accounting and finance functions for multiple APN clients—preparing monthly management reports and financial statements, budgets, forecasts, and cash flow analyses, and consulting and assisting clients with accounting system implementations. Prior to APN, he spent seven years in public accounting as an auditor, where he helped clients in a variety of industries analyze and document internal controls and accounting procedures, and find improvements. Dyson and his partner, Hillary, have a young son named Oliver. They look forward to welcoming a second son (or third, if you count their mixed cockapoo rescue dog, Wilbur) in February 2019.
Q: What challenges are you looking forward to taking on?
Career-wise, I’m always excited to take on new clients and projects at APN. I like to help clients navigate through their accounting issues and come out on the other side with a more efficient and effective accounting department. Right now, most of my personal challenges revolve around house projects. We recently moved, and there’s a lot to do in our new house to make it a home for our family.
Q: What is your hometown and what do you love about it?
I’m from Vidalia, the small town in Southeast Georgia known for its sweet onions. It was a great place to grow up as a kid, with all of the good (and even the bad!) small-town stereotypes. Vidalia is quirky, quiet, and full of great people. It’s still a place I love to visit when I go see my parents.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant in Atlanta?
There are way too many great places to eat in Atlanta! How many places am I allowed to name? For pizza, I really love Varasano’s. Steamhouse has my favorite combination of tuna melt and lobster bisque—but The Optimist is my favorite seafood place. I love Mali’s for sushi and Thai food, the tacos and enchiladas at Taqueria del Sol, and Miller Union is probably my go-to for a New-American dinner out. We also recently went to Revival in Decatur for Hillary’s birthday and it’s now a serious contender for my favorite new restaurant.
