Laurie Pelton, CPA, CA

Laurie Pelton, CPA, CA

Partner at O'Keefe Accounting Group CPA PC.

With over 40 years in the industry, there are not many situations that Laurie hasn’t had experience in. His strong analytical skills allowed him to comprehend that every business buys time, marks it up and sells it. Ultimately successful business owners must understand that mastery of the work is really a table stake, and by definition is a starting point that must be achieved before a business is really in a position to grow. The product or service will be different but the fundamental principals and processes do not change. Therefore, it must be constant that successful businesses fine-tune their processes to maintain success. Utilizing this paradigm, Laurie has been able to help many businesses owners see the value in harnessing their processes and empowering the people responsible for those processes. Together we grow.

One of Laurie’s significant roles in the firm is to provide mentorship to a capable group of young professionals on the aspects of operating a successful service business. He’s had a strong influence in developing a different business model that encompasses the needs of all stakeholder groups affected by our business including clients, suppliers and staff. The strong mandate of treating all of our stakeholder groups with the same level of respect, has resulted in the development of a strong culture that provides a consistently high level of service delivery to our clients.
