I was the owner and accountant of North Okanagan Accounting Services since 1990, putting the best teams together to provide all necessary financial services from bookkeeping and corporate year-ends to personal and corporate taxes and tax planning.
Born and raised in Vernon, I strove to provide a more personal service to my clients, helping to remove the fear factor from this overwhelming burden placed upon us by the "Tax Man". I have recently retired and entrusted the business to Rose Bhojani. She moved to the Okanagan specifically to work with the clients and build her family future here. She is eager to meet everyone and to carry on the tradition of quality service.
I have a formal background as a Swiss banker and over 40 years of experience as an accountant, finance manager and VP Finance in numerous countries across three continents. I joined North Okanagan Accounting Services in 2005 shortly after coming to Canada to semi-retire. It is great to be able to combine hobby and work—finance and taxes.
I firmly believe in giving back to the community and as such am treasurer for a number of charities and not-for-profit societies in Lumby.
