Improving the quality of life of our team, clients, and community.

Dale J. Garabedian, CPA, CGMA

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

"The most important quality to possess in working for an accounting firm is to interact, respect and listen to our clients and team members. Clients respect accountants that can listen to their problems or issues and then collaborate with them on a solution. To truly be an advisor you must first be able to listen."
