Andrew Pitre CPA, CA Owner / Entrepreneur

Owner, entrepreneur, problem solver. Andrew takes each designation just as seriously today as when he first started in private practice.
Raised in BC, Andrew has personally lived the life of an entrepreneur, giving him insight into the challenges, struggles and unique way of functioning other professionals often miss. Taking economics at the University of Victoria, he would receive his CA designation in 2008. Andrew then looked to study tax law through in-depth coursework and further specialized training. Captivated by business in all its forms, Andrew recognized early on that the world of accounting was best way to satisfy his varied interests.

Milene Fort-Pitre CPA, CA Senior Consultant

Getting her BA in Commerce was just the beginning. A fascination with financial reports, budgets and forecasting, not to mention sales figures of all kinds, led Milène towards her CA designation. Working in jobs at the highest levels of publishing, manufacturing, sales and distribution only concentrated her interest further as she dove deep into problem solving, often through the use of software and process implementation. Milène is focused on finding better ways to improve cash flow through improved processes and implementation of better technology.

Thanks to her years spent with publisher McGraw-Hill Ryerson, the BC Ferries Corp and Grant Thornton Chartered Accountants Milène knew where she wanted to be, and how important it was to focus directly on the needs of small to medium-sized businesses. She remains committed to finding new and more affordable ways for all businesses to enjoy the kind of high-level accounting advantage that large businesses often take for granted.
