About Peter

Peter Girolamo CPA, was destined to open and operate a CPA firm. The accounting profession seems to have run in the family: His dad and two of his uncles were also accountants.

Peter received an undergraduate degree in accounting from Boston College and a Masters in Business Administration from New York University. He began his accounting and finance career with Ernst & Young, a major multinational CPA firm. This experience proved to be an outstanding introduction to business, accounting, tax, and client service. He served clients ranging in size from startup to Fortune 500.

After migrating from Northern New Jersey to Los Angeles, Peter worked in private industry as a CFO and controller for a couple of small to medium sized companies. There he learned firsthand what it takes to make a business operate and grow. While this work was interesting, Peter found it to be far less exciting compared to the demands of serving a variety of clients at a CPA firm.The exposure to many issues, the consultative nature of the work, helping others succeed and the fun of building his own business led him to establish his firm.

On a personal note, Peter is married, and has three beautiful daughters. He enjoys spending time with his family and being a husband and dad. During the few moments away from his business and family, Peter enjoys music, biking, travel and movies.
