Kevin founded SNK Consulting, PC to focus on providing quality accounting services and financial advising to businesses, individuals, and families. After working in both public accounting and private industry for nearly twenty years of his professional career, Kevin wanted to direct his attention on what matters the most to him in his career, and that’s helping his clients to make sound financial decisions and offering his experiences to work with clients as an expert accounting partner.

Professionally, Kevin started his career in public accounting but spent a good portion of his profession in private industry working in finance, investments, and real estate. His portfolio of experience includes working for two public companies; Southern Pacific Funding Corp. and Wilshire Real Estate Investments Inc. With Wilshire, Kevin was part of the accounting management responsible for audit, financial reporting, cash management, and taxes. After leaving Wilshire, Kevin joined Aspen Capital Management LLC as their Chief Financial Officer overseeing the group’s hedge funds focused in real estate and investments in distressed securities, where he was responsible for day-to-day financial operations, financial reporting, investor relations, business tax strategies, and forecasting. These past experiences were fundamental in creating SNK Consulting, PC to partner with clients to provide the support and resources only larger companies have access to.
