Before entering public accounting, Susan Huddy, CPA held various positions in the private sector, including Controller, CFO and V.P. of Finance for several regional investment and real estate firms. She decided to start her own public accounting firm nearly ten years before founding CHC, using her expertise to help small business owners become more profitable, and to help them understand their businesses better.
�I get great satisfaction from working with business owners who have never really understood their financial statements until we have looked them over together. They are a great predictor of potential problems with inventory turnover, tax issues, cash flow problems and associated profitability, and yet too often are overlooked in the planning and analysis phase.�
She and Donna Costello decided to join forces in 1998 and formed Costello & Huddy, Chartered to better serve their existing clients, and to afford them the opportunity to branch out into other services.
They decided early on that the changing business environment would impact the services that their clients would look to them to provide, and that they had better be ready to move quickly when necessary to provide these new services. So Susan became licensed to perform WebTrust services, which involves examining websites to ensure that they maintain privacy, confidentiality and security for the public.
From software consulting to meeting facilitation to ongoing business consulting, Donna and Susan, and their staff of dedicated professionals, are keeping CHC in the forefront of providing valuable services to businesses and individuals.
