Robert Kin Campbell - CPA
Pickler Accounting Advisors
Managing Partner (Russellville, AR)
Kin first became interested in accounting as a senior in high school. He took a bookkeeping course and thoroughly enjoyed it, deciding that is what he wanted to do for a career. After high school graduation, Kin went to college in Russellville, Arkansas to become an accountant. He was in college for two years and then joined the Navy for four years. His tour of duty included California, Hawaii, and a year-and-a-half in Vietnam with a Seabee Unit.
Kin currently resides in Russellville, Arkansas and has spent over four decades there. He is approaching his 50th year in accounting!
As his practice grew, it was getting to the point where he needed to make some changes. After a meeting with David Pickler of Pickler Companies, it appeared that both practices were much the same. In the fall of 2020, he merged his practice with Pickler Accounting Advisors.
