William H. Pohlman majored in accountancy at Wright State University, graduating in 1976 with a Bachelor of Science in Business.
After graduation, Pohlman joined the accountancy department of the local wealth management firm, CH Dean. Recognizing an unmet need in the firm’s business focus, he left Dean to begin his own accounting firm at a time of great economic uncertainty. He convinced Doug Talmage to come along with him, and five years later, recruited Vicki Prenger as well. Both are Wright State graduates.
Pohlman is a partner in the firm of Pohlman & Talmage CPAs, Inc. He has 35 years of experience working with the medical and professional community in the areas of accounting, tax, financial planning, and retirement plan administration. He attained his CPA certificate in 1979, and became a Certified Financial Planner and a member of the College of Financial Planning in 1989.
Pohlman has mentored, advised, and guided numerous Wright State students through his involvement with the Department of Accountancy in the Raj Soin College of Business. During Pohlman & Talmage’s 20 years in business, they have hired 18 interns and seven graduates from Wright State.
Pohlman & Talmage supports a scholarship awarded each year to two accountancy students and one financial services student. In addition, Pohlman has personally endowed a scholarship to support accounting students.
Pohlman is a member of the American Institute of CPAs (with the designation of Personal Financial Specialist) and the Ohio Society of CPAs. He has served as chair of the Board of Trustees of the Montgomery County Unit of the American Cancer Society and is currently chair of the Wright State University Foundation Board of Trustees.
