Who We Are

Our team is at the heart behind everything we do.

 

We take a unique approach to bookkeeping and accounting.

Together our team bring decades of experience and expertise, managing the day-to-day bookkeeping processes, finances, and technology stack with a focus on sustainability and a long-term win/win relationship. This is the System Six way, and a process and culture we’ve developed over a decade.

Our foundation is built upon each team member valuing accuracy, integrity, expertise, and a willingness to serve. We truly believe that our clients’ success is our success. On our Monday morning team huddles, you’ll hear us often discussing the similarities that a well-run business shares with a championship sports team.  We’re consistently coaching, learning, and growing together, aiming to deliver our best work to both our clients and our teammates, every day.
