ABOUT

Rita KellerI’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.

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. I have also been repeatedly 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 working one-on-one with people in the accounting profession. I do telephone advisory sessions with managing partners, chief operating officers, practice managers, PIC of offices, HR directors and specific accounting managers and staff in public accounting firms nationwide.

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.

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. I tell my clients that I read so they don’t have to read so much – just read my blog!
