Certified public accountant Brian Stidd has opened his own firm at 11 South Street in Glens Falls. Prior to opening Stidd CPA, PLLC, the Siena College graduate worked for Whittemore, Dowen & Ricciardelli LLP in Queensbury. He has almost 20 years of experience working in public accounting and the private sector.
“I have an entrepreneurial spirit and always wanted to open my business,” said Stidd. “I enjoy working with clients, and I also enjoy the technology piece of the business.”
Stidd specializes in business and individual tax planning, advisory and preparation, and general business accounting and advisory. He also provides outsourced accounting services to small businesses that don’t have accountants on staff.
“A lot of small businesses need more than just bookkeeping but aren’t quite ready for or in need of a CFO for hire,” he said. “My clients have anywhere from $100,000 in revenue to $2 million-$3 million in revenue.”
