Kevin Halligan

Kevin has been helping businesses of all sizes with tax and accounting advice since he began his career at KPMG more than 23 years ago. Since then, Kevin has built his skills in virtually every industry. As a partner in Savannah’s Halligan Group and Comprehensive Business Partners, Kevin specializes in working with closely held enterprises. He prides himself on being more than a tax accountant, acting as a trusted business partner to his clients. Kevin takes the time to learn about his clients’ enterprises and their business and financial goals and works closely with them to build a successful organization.

After graduating from Benedictine Military School in Savannah, Kevin received his BA in accounting from Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina. He then attended graduate school at University of Georgia, attaining a Master of Accounting with a specialty in Tax.

Kevin is a committed alumnus of Benedictine. He has coached basketball and golf and served on both the executive and finance committees. He’s also actively involved in Savannah’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and currently serves as chairman of the committee to commemorate Savannah’s 200th St. Patrick’s Day parade. In addition to several other charitable boards and committees, Kevin is an active member of the Savannah Golf Club. When he’s not advising his clients or supporting his community, Kevin enjoys golf, travel and youth sporting events.
