Charles L. Carlson is one of fourteen partners who comprise Johnson, Miller & Co., CPAs, P.C., a regional public accounting firm with offices in Odessa, Midland, and Hobbs. Johnson, Miller & Co. provides auditing, tax, and other accounting and financial services. Charles has acted as Director in charge of the firm’s audit practice since 1990. Before joining Johnson, Miller & Co., Charles was a partner with KPMG-Peat Marwick.
Charles finds his work very rewarding. He reflects, “For more than 30 years, I’ve been blessed in that I have enjoyed my profession—I’ve enjoyed going to work!” The appeal, he explains, is that “every client’s situation is unique and requires full attention; thus presenting exceptional challenges which keeps the work stimulating.”
Obviously not one for idleness, Charles seeks out volunteer activities as fulfilling as his work. He currently serves as President of the Odessa Development Corporation, and sits on the Boards of ECISD Education Foundation and the SandHills Rodeo Hereford and Quarter Horse Show. In addition, he is active at CrossRoads Fellowship where he has served as Chairman of the Deacons Committee and on the Compass Academy’s Organizational Committee.
Charles and his wife of 25 years, Mary, were named Odessa Family of the Year by Samaritan Counseling Center in 2000. Charles has six children and twelve grandchildren, with a thirteenth grandchild due in May.
