C. Braxton Moncure is a native of Alexandria and a graduate of the University of Virginia (’66). He began his career working for the First & Citizens Bank of Alexandria, which has since been replaced by SunTrust. After a cameo appearance with the United States Army, he joined the Red Cross, which sent him to Vietnam and Turkey. Upon leaving Ankara, he enrolled at Balliol College of the University of Oxford to study Economics. In 1974, he bought the Alexandria-based firm Ross Accounting from Robert Earle Ross, and redubbed the outfit Ross & Moncure. He has been President and CEO ever since.
Braxton specializes in the taxation of high-net-worth individuals, multinationals, US expatriates, and non-immigrant visa holders living in the United States. This includes, but is not limited to, the Washington-based employees of foreign media and the spouses of diplomats in Washington. He also has an interest in the tax benefits of pass-through entities and retirement plans.
Braxton is married to architect Deborah and they have two children, Houston and Rachel. Both children were born in Bluefields, Jamaica at the villa resort that he owns and runs in unison with his wife and son. He speaks Spanish thanks to a year spent studying at the University of Barcelona in the mid-60s.
