Gary M. Prusiensky
Gary M. Prusiensky has been a CPA (NC License #14389) for a long time, a lot longer than Justin. Back in the day, when the CPA exam was hard and auditing was “cool”, Gary worked for one of the firms that all claimed to be number 9 out of the Big 8. Following a traditional path, Gary left the CPA life to become a corporate stooge (aka “accounting manager”) for a for a billion dollar multinational business to travel the world and enjoy the 80s. Realizing he missed the action of public accounting, Gary left the corporate world for good in 1995 and set up his own firm.
Justin Prusiensky (operations) is passionate about sales taxes and retirement planning. A CPA (NC License #34772) since 2007 and alumnus of Appalachian State University he is what locals call a “Damn Yankee”, especially since he stayed in Charlotte. Justin focuses on using technology to make your business better and hopes that one day technology will allow him to spend more time on the ski slopes during tax season. Until then, he is picking up the slack for Gary and helping clients navigate the wonderful world of NC sales tax rules.
