John P. Reimer
John was raised in Walhalla, North Dakota, where he met his wife, Heather. They married in 2003 and now live in West Fargo with their two children, Noah and Emily, and their Golden Retriever, Kona. John enjoys West Fargo because its continual, steady growth offers abundant opportunities for its citizens. Outside of the office, John’s hobbies include traveling, golfing, cheering on the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Wild. He also spends time diving—he is a SCUBA certified Master Diver. Though his favorite book changes frequently, he currently cites “The Power of Positive Leadership” by Jon Gordon as his go-to read.
John took his first accounting class as a junior in high school and was immediately hooked. He went on to study accounting in college and started working as a professional in the field in 2003. John joined Brady Martz in 2019 via its merger with Fiebiger, Swanson, West & Co., PLLP (FSW). As the shareholder in charge of the firm’s Fargo office, John specializes in serving clients in the construction industry and ESOP-owned entities. He performs audits, reviews, and compilations of for-profit entities and also occasionally performs non-profit audits. With nearly two decades of experience under his belt, John is a valuable team member. He established his career with Eide Bailly before joining FSW as a senior associate in 2007. By the time FSW merged with Brady Martz, John was the firm’s managing partner.
A determined and driven professional, John’s personal philosophy of service is simple: “Do what is right.” In fact, his favorite quote is, “The definition of integrity is doing what is right, even when no one is watching.” John credits his success in the accounting field to a combination of hard work, determination, and the desire to provide greater financial security for others.
