About Us

Our Story

Gardner & Capparelli was founded in June 2016 by Matt Gardner and Jim Capparelli. The company has grown from the two co-founders to 13 people in just 2 ½ years! We are the future of our industry, reimaging what a CPA can do! Matt & Jim say the needs of the modern-day entrepreneur and business owner no longer fit the model of the traditional accounting firm. So, they set out to offer an alternative solution.

Gardner & Capparelli is a boutique, integrated services solution for small and medium sized businesses. We are pioneering the Virtual CFO and Accounting Services model, providing a team-based delivery approach with expertise in accounting, finance, tax, and human resources. We also provide the traditional tax preparation, compliance and attestation services you will find with the traditional accounting firm.

The culture at Gardner & Capparelli is a reflection of the desired lifestyle Matt & Jim set out to live. They built the business around that notion. At G&C we march to our own beat, wear whatever makes us comfortable, and love what we do. This is who we are.

Our style and personalities are what make us so approachable and appealing to our clients. We don’t hire “bean counters”, we hire dynamic thinkers and professionals. It makes us that much more valuable to our clients. Technical capabilities are important, but so is understanding people.
