STRATEGIC ADVISORS

It’s random moments in the day when you get the opportunity to work on the business, rather than in the business. And when you have an idea or question that needs to be talked through, how valuable would it be to pick up the phone and talk to another entrepreneur with strategic financial insights? That’s why our CPAs are on-call as your Strategic Advisors.

Q

Kurt
Hamilton

CPA | CEO | Strategic Advisor

“Don’t try to be perfect; try to be better.”

Kurt’s drive to support Canadian entrepreneurs is sparked by his appreciation for their willingness to try new ideas, the passion they have for their business, and the fact that they are driving the Canadian economy forward. The difference Kurt is dedicated to making is helping entrepreneurs to feel more confident and assured in their business decisions and direction.

 Kurt moved to Vancouver after University and completed his CPA articling at a small firm downtown. Immediately, he knew the boutique firm environment, where he could really get to know his clients and make a big impact on their business, was the right environment for him.

 The best piece of advice Kurt was ever given was “Don’t try to be perfect; try to be better.” He also applies this ethos outside the office, where you’ll find him training to run ultra-marathons.

garth
drummond

CPA | Strategic Advisor

“Entrepreneurs need to do things their own way.”

Garth is a true entrepreneur at heart. After becoming a start-up’s CFO at age 22, he realized in his 30’s that he never wanted to work for someone else again and started his own practice to do things his way.

His role as Director of Customer Service at Provision CPA is simple: to be responsive, be empathetic, and be entrepreneurial. Every day he witnesses the vision and ambition of his entrepreneurial clients and it drives him to be the strategic advisor in their corner that they never had. Garth’s ability to relate to both their desires and growing pains allows Garth to enter their world in a way that not a lot of people can, and when entrepreneurs who “get” each other are in a room together, anything can happen.

Nathan
Morrison

CPA | Strategic Advisor

“Nate has your back. And he does a kick-ass job of it.”

As a Strategic Advisor for clients, Nate makes it his responsibility to adopt his clients’ perspectives and understand their business vision. He does this by putting himself into their shoes, as an entrepreneur, to provide them with the level of service, care, and insight that he’d expect himself.

Nate got into the accounting business by following his father’s footsteps. His father, Ken Morrison, was one of the original founders of Provision CPA, who encouraged Nate to take accounting courses and work at the firm part-time when he was younger. This experience ignited a fire within Nate, as he found fulfilment in the “people” part of the work. Meeting like-minded business owners with an entrepreneurial spirit and helping them to succeed continues to be exciting today.

Nate wants every client to know that he’s got their back. And he does a kick-ass job of it. He is often your go-to point of contact and the one you can turn to for creative problem solving. When he’s not working, you’ll find Nate with his family, skiing, hiking, and going to activities for his kids.
