About Us

So, why are we called "The Bookkeeper"?

The inspiration for the company name came from one of our founder’s favorite films, “The Untouchables”. Craig decided to use the name The Bookkeeper because of the minor, yet significant character of George.

Bookkeeping is really only a part of what we do.

As a company founded by a former corporate CFO with over two decades of experience, consulting is an impactful part of the services we provide. Our passion is to provide meaningful financial data to transform your business.
