|Jason Tonjes, CPA, CFE, has spent his entire career devoted to the success of Bland & Associates, P.C. (Bland). He joined the Bland family directly from college in 1996 with an entry level position. Just ten years later he bought the firm, with the goal of achieving its long-standing mission of providing outstanding client service and fulfilling careers for its personnel.
Tonjes is a builder and loves to help others do the same, whether for their business or themselves. As a leader at Bland for more than 25 years, he has helped hundreds of business owners, business leaders, and professionals reach their potential. He’s excited to help companies increase workforce capacity by supplementing staff with technology solutions, thereby improving quality of life and retaining valuable personnel. Tonjes can also help teams become more profitable, improve business processes, possess better data, and be leaders in their industry and the business community.
His vision for Bland is to embody its tagline to move Beyond Accounting every day. This will be accomplished by delivering solutions in areas that our customers have never dreamed of. We are about more than numbers, tasks, and compliance – we are about profitability, quality of life, workforce supplementation, increased capacity, better data, and better processes.
Growing up on a farm near Pender, Nebraska, Tonjes developed a strong work ethic at an early age – an asset that continues to benefit his staff and clients. He attended Midland University in Fremont, Nebraska, where he earned a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting, as well as a B.S. in Economics. In addition to being a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), he is also a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE).
In 2006, Tonjes made the Midland’s Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” list, an honor for leaders under 40 based on their contributions to their business and community. He was also named Outstanding Young Alumni of Midland University in 2008.

|I had plenty of incentive to go to college and do well after my first job was to spend an entire summer building Chicken cages in Wakefield, NE.|
|Since starting at Bland I have been in 42 states, although the only reason I went to Alabama was to outrun a Hurricane that sent us home early from training in Pensacola; and 7 countries.|
