The Beech Valley Story

Prior to co-founding Beech Valley, Brad and Josh worked together at PwC, where they led multiple audit engagements and advised clients on complex accounting issues. When they left in early 2014, they started consulting on the side to self-fund a separate start-up. Soon though, they found themselves consulting full-time…one month in Nashville writing software rev rec memos, the next in Chicago implementing SOX, then back to Atlanta cleaning up financials for a late stage start-up, and so on and so on.

Brad and Josh were solving complex accounting issues without the overhead of a 20th century accounting firm, and they were pushing those savings to their clients. More importantly, they felt in control of their lives again. They worked on projects they found interesting, they took time off to travel, and they were compensated for every hour they worked.

Word spread and next thing they knew, they had Big 4 accountants and consultants wanting in on the action. These accountants too wanted to provide first-rate work across industry sectors, expand their network and add value on their own terms. So Beech Valley expanded to help companies and firms solve complex accounting and finance issues at a fraction of the price, with vetted, top-quality CPAs that subscribe to this new way of doing business.
