John had his own CPA business for over 24 years, doing private and public accounting as well as auditing assignments for manufacturing, financial services, retail, sales, distribution and self-employed practitioners in the medical sector. As a former entrepreneur himself, John understands the challenges encountered in running a business and that helps him serve his clients better.
While he enjoyed being in business for himself, he found that joining SLF, in 2017, brought him the support he needed to provide even better client service. John has always had exceptional communication and collaboration skills and this skillset has helped him equally build relationships with clients and members of his team.
John’s current client base is generally in the construction industry, but also includes his dedication to serving self-employed medical practitioners. His expertise includes estate planning, personal income tax, business plans and individual pension plans.
