Gregory J. Sarnecki, CPA

RETIRED DIRECTOR – Accounting & Auditing


Meet Greg
Personable | Inquisitive | Valuable | Navy Man

Don’t be amazed if you overhear Greg saying, “You’d be surprised to know what an accountant can help
you decide.” Because he’s present for many of his client’s financial conversations, he’s definitely the guy
who helps with the right decision, whether it’s the sale of a real estate asset, or a cash flow question. For
Greg, this is the fulfillment of an accountant’s promise – taking small businesses to a point where the
owners can get the highest value as they define exit strategies and succession plans.

Greg heads up our Human Resources department within the firm, and as a result offers a great resource
for our clients.

Greg’s clients often consult with him as a partner professional as well. Got a question about your attorney’s
advice as it pertains to your financial picture? Ask Greg. His mantra? “All taken care of.”

Perspectives from Greg 

“I’ve worked with multiple generations of business owners, and I know it’s not about the advice but the
questions. I just ask the questions, even the tough ones.”

“It can be difficult, even emotional, to approach succession planning as an inclusive process. That’s why
I’m there to help, no matter the shareholder challenges. I can be a neutral observer and inquisitive advisor.”

    • Back to School with Charity Navigator

      School has officially started across the country, and it looks like students won’t be the only ones who will be graded out of 100 points this year.
