I’m Rita Keller and I am passionate about the CPA profession. I am not a CPA but I have worked in the fascinating world of CPA firm management for over 30 years.
My mission is to simply make a positive difference in how CPAs manage their firms and prepare their people for the future.
I am based in western Ohio but travel the entire USA helping professionals that manage accounting firms.
Solutions for CPA Firm Leaders is my blog and I have been writing and posting it daily since January 2, 2006. It is focused on one topic: Management of an Accounting Practice.
Repeatedly, since 2005, I have been named one of the Top 100 Most Influential People In Accounting by Accounting Today. In 2014, I was named one of the Most Powerful Women in Accounting by CPA Practice Advisor. You can see my other awards by reading my full bio.
One of my favorite activities is speaking to people working in the accounting profession. I have been featured at nearly every major CPA firm management conference sponsored by the AICPA, CPA firm associations and state CPA societies.
Working, hands-on, in a growing, successful CPA firm for 30 years is where I developed my reputation for efficient, forward-thinking firm management. I have also enjoyed and benefitted from serving on several boards and committees for national and state CPA organizations.
Currently, I coach professionals managing CPA firms, consult with firms around the USA on management topics, facilitate management retreats and speak at conferences and individual firm events.
Of course, I continue to write my daily blog. I strive to make a positive difference. I am very active on most social media platforms. I am most active on Twitter.
