Our Approach

We thrive on running a business and know what it takes to help small and mid-sized companies manage their accounting functions. Karen Dzupinka started Accounting Executive Services in 2006 with a mission to provide CFO, Controller and Bookkeeping services to companies who need the flexibility to tap into the right expertise at the right time. With the ability to see the big picture as well as the pesky details, we make sure her clients have the high quality financial information they need to stay on top of their business.

Our Story

Karen Dzupinka started her accounting career with Goodman & Company immediately after graduating from Old Dominion University. She worked with Goodman & Company as an auditor and a tax preparer for almost 12 years. When she left the firm for private industry she was looking for a relationship where she could add value and make a difference. She held several private positions over the years in various industries but always missed the assortment of client relationships she experienced with public accounting. By starting up her consulting practice she was able to get the best of both worlds. She now experiences all of the benefits of multiple client relationships and gets the satisfaction of knowing that she is making a difference.
