Up-and-Comer Nate Hall: ‘Adventure abounds’ here

This week’s Up & Comer is Nate Hall, an accountant with RSM US LLP.

Name: Nate Hall

Age: 33

What brought you to Sioux Falls?

I was born and raised in Sioux Falls, and my new daughter will likely be a third-generation Lincoln Patriot. After spending some time away in a larger metropolitan area, my wife and I have returned to be closer to family and to be a part of the community we hold near and dear.

What keeps you in Sioux Falls?

We can see bull riding at the Sanford Premier Center and then catch a Broadway show at the Washington Pavilion. Brother Ali headlined the 605 Summer Classic, my neighbors are friendly, and M.B. Haskett serves a mean breakfast sandwich that I smother in Dagger and Arrow hot sauce. My buddies ride Harleys and the Carpenter Bar serves craft cocktails with homemade simple syrups infused with rhubarb — among other flavors. Variety is the spice of life, and Sioux Falls gets the job done. Adventure abounds for those in search of it. For all of you toiling for progress and for the greater good of our little hamlet, I salute you.

No limitations, what would you do to improve Sioux Falls?

I would develop the most bicycle-friendly city in the world. Safe lanes from all bike trail exits to downtown through back streets — neither drivers nor cyclists want a bike lane on 41st Street — would allow for cars and bikes to coexist. This coupled with a trail from the central ring out to Good Earth State Park would make our city more attractive to those we are trying to recruit to fill key industries. Cycling is good for our mental and physical health, good for the environment and could save millions of tax dollars as we lighten the load on our paving/construction budget. If you agree, let’s ask all future mayors, councilors to get this done.

Tell us about your profession:

I am an accountant with RSM US LLP, the fifth-largest accounting firm in the nation. My co-workers are exceptional, as are our clients. Every day is challenging and keeps me on my toes. We have the talent and resources to be the trusted advisers for middle-market enterprises.

What’s next for you?

There’s this documentary called “Long Way Round” where the actor Ewan McGregor and his friend ride their motorcycles 20,000 miles around the world. That seems a bit excessive, but I am wanting to purchase the style of motorcycle they used and explore the region a bit more. There’s a 600-mile trail out west that seems fun, and I would like to try the Great Lakes region a bit. If you have any pointers, catch me on LinkedIn.
