As Managing Partner at Sassetti LLC, my role is to provide strategic direction to the firm while overseeing daily operations, developing our employees and continuing to work with clients across various service lines. My goal is to purposefully guide operations and employees to fulfill our firm’s objective of “Achieving exceptional results by engaging and empowering our people, our clients and our community.” I started my career with Sassetti back in 2004 after graduating from college and worked my way up to partner and now manaing partner of the firm. It has been a challenging but fulfilling journey. I have worked in all aspects of the firm but currently my focus is on closely held businesses and not-for-profit organizations, providing compliance and advisory services on a range of issues that impact them. I also work closely with our Client Accounting and Advisory Services group, which provides accounting, CFO and technology solutions to a broad range of clients.

What is it about Accounting that attracted you to the field?
As the accountant we are able to see the full picture of the business which I find interesting. I also really enjoy working with the leadership team to better analyze and build their business/organization. Also, I am a very curious person so I like that I get to look under the hood.
What drew you to Sassetti?
I liked the idea of working at a smaller firm that would give me a more well rounded experience with audit, tax, accounting, etc. and the smaller family-like culture.
