About Our Firm

Firm History
The firm was founded by John South in January of 2009. Before launching this firm, John had over 24 years of combined experience working in the “Big Eight” environment, for city government, and for several well-known large corporations in the private sector. He has held finance and information technology senior executive level positions. John’s “real world” experience allowed him to launch his own firm, which he has operated successfully for the last eleven years.
Effective November 30, 2020 John has sold the firm to Steve Sender, a peer who John has known from almost the beginning of the firm. Steve launched his own firm, Sender CPA & Consulting Ltd, one year after John. They have remained in contact over the years and have looked for ways to work together. Steve was looking at another firm to purchase and asked John his opinion. However, instead, John ended up selling his own firm to Steve. John will continue to work for Steve for the next few years on a part-time basis, and will also get to enjoy more time with his family.
