“If you want to learn more about an area, they will help you learn and grow. On your timetable, not someone else’s. The Partners are interested in your ideas and plans, and helping you reach your career goals.” –Manny Gonzalez, CPA

  • Strategic Thinking Needed. Our firm is a unique blend of traditional accounting services and strategic business consulting, which offers you a unique chance to be strategic and proactive. Our clients look to us for advice on how to measure, make and save more money. You get access to the business owner so you can see the impact your work is making. If you are looking for a chance to flex your strategic muscles, this is the place.

“Here, what I like most is that I can do more of the advisory and the special projects. A typical accounting firm does accounting, tax, and audit. But I was attracted to the idea that we could do more for them.”Lisa Arnieri, CPA

  • Growth Minded Companies Trust Us. We have developed a reputation for helping growth minded companies accelerate their growth. Taking a firm with great potential from 0 to 60 quickly is what we do and who we attract. At Apex CPAs & Consultants, you get an opportunity to work with companies who trust, appreciate, implement, and enjoy the benefits of our guidance as they rack in the wins. Be part of a winning team – ours and our clients’. You’re going to love the company we keep.

“Whether our clients are growing to sell or growing to grow, we like the energy and creativity involved in growth.”Fred Shoaff, CPA

  • An Amazing Culture. We have an extremely dynamic, positive and growth-minded culture. It’s also entrepreneurial and innovative. And, we support, celebrate, and treat each other like family. Our various group outings and community work help bring us together. The whole team truly lives up to our core values. So, whether you are quiet or outgoing, we have a seat for you at the table because our culture supports and nourishes an exciting mix of people who complement and balance each other.

“We value our culture. We need people that are willing to support others, but can work independently as well. Self motivated, self starters. We are such a friendly group.” Erin Triolo

  • We’ve Got Your Back. If you are willing to pitch in where needed to make a difference here and for our clients, we will be there to support you, all the way.

From our new wellness program, to our peer recognition Apex bucks, to flexible summer hours so you spend time with family, and a sense of trust in one another, we all work hard to support each other so work’s not so hard. Accounting can be hard. Working at Apex is not.

“When I started the firm, I wanted to make sure that we had a policy where leadership was always accessible and that we created a mentoring, open-door philosophy. We encourage people to come to us with ideas. We are proud of building a supportive culture for our team. We owe it to them and they deserve it.” Jim Chakires, Managing Partner, CPA, CVA
