A Little About Us
Chet Syverson is the Co-founder and Tax Director of Curated Accounting. Taking Masters in Taxation courses from the #1 tax program in the country, Chet specializes in making sure that his clients are always paying the least amount in taxes as possible. Further, his background in Banking, Sales, Venture Capital Firms, Public Accounting, and as an Outsourced CFO, gives him a unique perspective to help individuals and business owners achieve their goals.
"In my previous roles, I saw a large gap between the financial services that are being offered and the financial services that people actually need & want. That gap is what fueled my passion to start Curated Accounting. I wanted to ensure that clients would be able to get the same advice from me that I would give my friends and family. This is why we make Authenticity a cornerstone of our values at Curated Accounting.
Further, I realized that many financial services are aimed at putting people in a Box based on certain metrics. What I learned was that you can use that data as a starting point, but financial services have to be curated to each individuals needs and preferences. Every business owner and individual that I meet has some unique aspect to their situation, so Curated Accounting was created with that in mind, to recognize and curate our services to fit each individuals specific needs."
Outside of his role at Curated Accounting, Chet spends most of his time with his two boys, Henry and Brady. Having grown up in the small town of Soldotna Alaska (before you ask, no I do not live in an Igloo - Chet"), Chet likes to get up to Alaska to spend time with his family. A lifelong Lakers fan, Chet enjoys watching basketball and being involved in sports. Even as a Laker fan, Chet thinks it's far over due for Seattle to bring an NBA team back to the area.
