Trevor L. Vernon
Trevor L. Vernon is a retired multi-Billion Dollar Company CFO, Best-Selling Author, and Entrepreneur. Trevor obtained his B.S.B.A in Finance from Western Carolina University located in Cullowhee, NC and his MBA from Winthrop University located in Rock Hill, SC. He's also held designations and registrations including:
Certified Management Accountant (CMA)
Certified Financial Planner (CFP)
Registered Investment Adviser (RIA)
Commodity Trading Adviser (CTA)
After 28+ combined years as financial and accounting professionals we are repulsed by what we see across the Accountant landscape. The complex jargon, fees, and commoditized, one-size-fits-all accounting and tax advice has generated mediocre results at best for most Accountant's and CPA's clients.
Our approach to finance and accounting challenges conventional, antiquated norms. We employ a data driven, experienced based decision-making process to deliver actionable strategies that accelerate growth and profitability while managing tax liability.
