Bob Carroll, CPA, CFP®, CDFA™

After personally going through a divorce, Bob recognized a need to better serve those considering or in the midst of this difficult process.  He has a passion for helping people and recognized that these clients were underserved when it came to their finances.  This is what prompted Bob to create Carroll Financial, a specialized service provided by Carnegie Investment Council. 

Bob is currently the managing Director of the Carnegie Investment Counsel, Cincinnati office, where he focuses on the unique needs of his clients and their families.  Bob began his career as a Certified Public Accountant at the Cincinnati office of Ernst & Young, from there he went on to become an executive officer of Fifth Third Bank.

In addition to his professional licenses, Bob holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame (BBA – Accountancy) and a Masters in Business Administration from Xavier University. Bob serves on the Board of Life Enriching Communities as well as a Finance / Investment Committee for GLAD House.
