Profile: Reed Brimhall

From the Idaho Business Review

For over three and a half years now, Reed Brimhall has been the Chief Financial Officer for Scentsy, Inc. But the journey that brought him to the Meridian-based fragrance product manufacturer began in the 1970s.

“It’s an old story,” Brimhall says. “My dad was an accountant, and I actually had plans of getting an accounting degree and joining the FBI. They were just beginning to use forensic accountants.”

One potential downside he saw to a career with the FBI was the possibility of being transfered often to wherever the agency needed him, so Brimhall shifted his focus toward public accounting instead.
