BluePoint Financial will specialize in tax preparation and financial advising and will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Feb. 8 at 4:30 p.m. at the location on Regions Way across from the Whole Foods near Destin Commons.

Smith graduated from Auburn University and relocated to the Emerald Coast in 2005. He earned his master’s degree in business administration from Troy University and has more than 11 years of experience as a CPA. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), a past member of the Niceville Military Affairs Committee, and a graduate of the Destin Chamber of Commerce 2015 Forward Class.

When not working at BluePoint helping clients or attending local meetings and events, Smith spends his free time with his wife, Haydyn, and two sons, Olson and Milton at the beach, playing golf, or enjoying Auburn sports.

“We feel so welcomed by the Destin community, and we’re looking forward to helping local neighbors and businesses reach their financial goals,” Smith said. “It’s so great to see how our area really focuses on supporting local businesses.”
