Andy Zarycki, Partner
Andy's passion for business and accounting started as a kid watching his parents both independently start their own businesses. With this passion, he graduated from St. Xavier University in 2012 with a Bachelor's in Accounting. In April of 2018, he sold his company he started after college, which gave him that extra push to resign from his corporate position and venture off on his own. After six years of experience with companies ranging from 90 million to 100 thousand in revenue, he decided to start his own accounting firm. Andy performed all accounting duties working for these companies and gained the experience and confidence necessary to expand the business.
