Jackson Thornton, a certified public accounting and consulting firm headquartered in Montgomery, AL, is pleased to announce two recent recognitions of team members based in the firm’s Dothan office.

Daniel Tew, a Senior Manager and CPA, was selected as one of the Top 40 Under 40 in Commercial Construction by the Alabama Associated General Contractors (AGC) and Business Alabama Magazine for demonstrating a high level of leadership, professional excellence and commitment to the construction industry.

Jay Newsome, a Manager and CPA, recently graduated from the Alabama Banking School, a two-year program. Sponsored by the Alabama Bankers Association, the school is administered by a 26-member faculty comprised of bankers and industry professionals. During the final session, students form teams and participate in a bank simulation program called BankExec. Newsome’s team won first place in the simulation.
