Jay Bhagirath, CPA, CA
Since starting my first public accounting practice in 1986, every day has brought a different challenge and has kept me on my toes. You could say that I’ve ‘seen it all’ when it comes to solving accounting and tax challenges.
Over the course of my career, twice I have successfully built accounting firms from the ground up. My wife, also a CGA, was my partner in the first firm and a big contributor to its success. We were a family business serving many family businesses. I believe my client’s loyalty comes from my excitement and genuine interest in supporting them in their success.
While my career path also led me to work within larger firms, including advancing my way up to an Associate Partner role at Price Waterhouse & Coopers, my passion has always been having my own practice and working with family-owned businesses.
As I approach retirement, I want to ensure that our clients are going to be cared for in the ways they have come to expect from my team and myself. I began my search for a people-focused firm that shared the same values, where there would be little change and a comfortable transition for our clients. I wanted our clients to feel at ease in the hands of this next generation of advisors. Sangha Tone fit that profile. I saw a lot of my firm reflected in Sangha Tone’s culture and values– the whole team is personable, easy to get along with and dedicated to helping their clients grow.
