Not all accountants are stereotypically boring. Two young CPAs are leading a growing movement that breaks the mold by using technology in better ways to enhance their work and serve their clients.

CPAs Gone Wild at SXSW

We aren't your parents CPA firm!

On March 8th Jody Padar, CEO and Principal of New Vision CPA Group and Jason Blumer, Founder of THRIVaL+ CPA Network and Blumer and Associates CPAs descended on South by Southwest to show this innovative group that CPAs aren’t so stereotypical and are using technology in better ways to enhance their work.

Padar and Blumer lead a growing movement of CPAs (and firms) who represent a new school of accountants. This movement focuses on the mindset that technology should be embraced to facilitate more productive and valuable ways to service their clients. And it doesn’t stop there; some of the businesses operate virtually, have tossed billing by the hour and don’t wear a suit everyday. Each practice has its own nuances, but they all generally have one thing in common-- “We aren’t your parents cpa firm,” says Blumer.

Look Who is Talking
In their live podcast from SXSW, they asked real people “What pisses you off about your CPA?” to capture whats not working with the more traditional models. “CPA firms aren’t focused on delivering value to the client,” says Padar.

It’s not just these two rebels talking. SXSW stirred up a host of blogs, tweets and videos that can be found at .
