Erin Whittle, MBA, CGMA, CPA - President & Founder

Erin Whittle founded our firm in 2013 because she felt a strong pull to provide local businesses and nonprofits with strategic accounting services. Her ability to identify where strategy, operations and finance intersect has provided clients with critical insights in the areas of financial oversight, strategic planning, operational efficiencies, and making strides towards a proactive and accountable culture. Erin has worked in the accounting profession for over 20 years within public accounting and nonprofit leadership. Prior to launching our firm Erin provided tax, audit and consulting services for both for-profit and nonprofit clients. In addition, she served as CFO for a prominent nonprofit organization in Fort Wayne. Her experience of working with and for businesses in the for- and non-profit sectors has provided an invaluable understanding of what clients need from an accountant and business partner.

Erin works with both for- and nonprofit clients, providing them with strategic accounting services that include outsourced CFO, outsourced operational accounting, and consulting services.

Erin holds a BS in business with a concentration in accounting from Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne. In addition, she holds an MBA from that same university.

Erin is a member of the Indiana CPA Society and the AICPA. She is also a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor. 

Erin serves on the Board of Directors and Audit Committee for STAR Financial Bank.

In her free time, Erin spends time at the lake where she can be found slalom waterskiing or sitting in an Adirondack chair on the dock. She also enjoys reading, refinishing furniture, and spending time with her family.
