Our Team

Bruce D. Hinchley, CPA


Bruce founded Hinchley & Company in October 1998. As president of our established firm, Bruce is responsible for all aspects of corporate operation at Hinchley & Company but spends most of his time with clients individually.

Bruce is dedicated to learning his clients’ financial goals and dreams as well as their current financial condition. He prepares a proprietary financial plan, which examines the five interdependent financial planning areas — investment planning, insurance protection, tax planning, estate and legal planning, and debt analysis and management. He outlines each client’s unique strengths and weaknesses, then gives specific and clear recommendations relevant to the client’s plan. Most clients appreciate this tailor-made and holistic approach to financial planning.

Bruce earned his Bachelor of Arts in business administration and accounting in 1989 at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. He is licensed as a certified public accountant with over 23 years of experience in tax and financial services. He is also an investment advisor representative (Series 65) for Hinchley Advisory Group, LLC, a registered investment advisor with the state of Colorado. He holds licenses in life, health, and accident insurance.

In his spare time, Bruce enjoys playing hockey, following the Colorado Avalanche (although he misses watching Peter Forsberg play), fitness, and spending quality time with his wife and four children.
