Michael Marcaccio, CPA, CA
I was born and raised in St. Marys, Ontario, which is a small town in Southwestern Ontario outside of London where my family owned and operated a small business. In St. Marys I played numerous sports growing up of which my favorites are still hockey and golf. I generally spend my free time in winter playing hockey and hunting and my summers on the golf course. My wife Sarah and I have been married since June of 2012 and we welcomed our first child Bianca Ava Marcaccio on June 7, 2015. Spending time with her is my new favourite hobby.
EDUCATIONAL OR EXPERIENCE TIDBITS
In 2003 I made the move to Nova Scotia where I started my education at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish. After two years in the science program I made the switch into business. For the next three years I pursued my bachelor of business administration with a major in accounting and graduated in 2008 with distinction from the program.
I began my articling/accounting career with Wilde & Company in September of 2008 and received my CA designation in May of 2011. I have been a manager since January of 2013.
In 2015 I started working on my Chartered Business Valuator designation. I currently work with businesses to provide valuation services for succession, estate planning, re-organization, share sale or purchase and asset sale or purchase transactions. It is important to start the process early in order to setup a proper plan and strategy for going forward.
Having small business background, I thoroughly enjoy working with and providing value to small business clients. I also enjoy adding value to a variety of corporate, personal tax, consulting and audit clients.
WORDS OF WISDOM
