SALIDA, Colo. (PRWEB) January 04, 2023
Dark Horse CPAs, a top accounting and tax firm serving small businesses and individuals across the nation, announces the hiring of Megan Leesley, CPA as an Accelerator in the firm’s Principal Accelerator Program. Leesley’s diverse accounting background in private and public accounting, including managing P&Ls for various businesses and her work as a Certified Valuation Analyst on top of her tax and accounting work, earned her a seat in Dark Horse’s Principal Accelerator Program.
Megan earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Texas at Austin and a master’s degree in accounting from the University of Colorado Boulder along with a CPA license from the state of Colorado. She brings to Dark Horse over eight years of experience with local and regional CPA firms in the areas of tax and accounting, serving a wide range of individuals and entities. Megan saw in Dark Horse a firm that was dedicated to putting their greatest asset (their people) first and providing them with the tools they needed to thrive professionally and personally.
When asked what made the Accelerator Program compelling, she responded, “When I first heard the Dark Horse name, I was intrigued. As I dove in to discovering more, I found a firm that was creating real solutions to the myriad issues CPAs face working for traditional CPA firms as well as in starting their own practice. So, here’s a firm who puts their greatest asset, their people, first and gives them the tools to not only serve their clients exceptionally but also to thrive in their own lives. The result of the innovative model speaks for itself with overwhelmingly high client and employee satisfaction metrics.”
From an alignment perspective, Megan noted, “Dark Horse was founded to serve small businesses who are Dark Horses among their larger, more well-known competitors. In other words, the clients I am passionate about serving. Taking clients from a place of fear of the IRS to a place of confidence that they are not only in compliance but are using the tax code to their advantage is why I do what I do. I love it. With the support and resources of Dark Horse, I know I’ll be able to do more of this and achieve the best outcomes for clients.”
“Megan has a dynamic skillset and personality that allows her to go deep with clients in ways many CPAs simply cannot,” says Chase Birky, CEO and co-founder of Dark Horse CPAs. “She’s the unicorn that every CPA firm is looking for. We feel very honored and blessed that she chose to bring her talents to Dark Horse and are amazed that she has already built a six-figure practice in the ten weeks since she joined.”
About the Dark Horse Accelerator Program
The Dark Horse Principal Accelerator Program was created for entrepreneurially-minded CPAs that want to build a scalable book of business without the personal and financial sacrifices required of starting a firm from scratch. Dark Horse empowers their CPAs with the resources and support to grow intelligently and profitably. Their proprietary technology, flexible staffing and industry-leading systems and processes enable CPAs to focus on being the trusted advisor to their clients, unlocking unprecedented value in these relationships, so that they will continue to be relevant long into the future while their counterparts become increasingly displaced by technology.
Accelerators are put through a training program that acclimates them to the firm’s exclusive tech stack, followed by proprietary sales training and one-on-one coaching. Upon completion of training, they begin building their book of business by fielding inquiries from potential Dark Horse clients. To facilitate their growth, Accelerators have full-time and fractional professional personnel support at their disposal. A collaborative group of like-minded CPAs go the extra mile to help them out in areas where they lack expertise. This new CPA firm business model includes an active corporate team that ensures their work is of high quality and strategically focused. After successful completion of the program, they can become an equity principal of the firm.
The Dark Horse Principal Accelerator Program is currently accepting new Accelerators. Interested CPAs are invited to dive deeper into the program on Dark Horse's recruiting site, abetterway.cpa or by emailing email@example.com.
