Englund, CPA, which specializes in helping small and mid-sized businesses with growth-critical CFO-level skills that are often missing when there is no executive over that function.  With an award-winning background in accounting, operations, strategy, and sales, Paul has a knack for quickly identifying opportunities to increase profits in every client he works with.

Skill gaps in an accounting team of a small or mid-market business that cannot yet afford a full time seasoned executive are common.   These include services such as CFO oversight, regulatory compliance, streamlined operations, cash flow acceleration, and tax expertise, all of which Paul’s firm offers.

Paul is licensed as a CPA in Florida and Massachusetts and is also a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor.  He has won the i2 Technology Gold Glove Award and achieved Presidents Club five consecutive years.
