Companies often make the mistake of prioritizing profits over the development of their employees. Hoping to cut costs, they avoid any need to spend more money, time, and resources in the long run. Understanding that a business’s growth is directly proportional to the development of its employees can make a startling difference. Kyle Geers (CEO) and John Ikosipentarhos (COO) of Zeroed-In Consulting prove the importance of a diversely experienced but equally curious team.
Kyle and John come from different backgrounds within the public accounting sphere. Their experience and expertise complement their ambition to empower others and improve their surroundings. Kyle and John met on the first day of their professional careers working at the global CPA firm Grant Thornton. Since then, their friendship (which may have started with a mutual love of video games) has evolved into a partnership based on a shared vision.
Zeroed-In Consulting, LLP is a consulting firm based in Southern California focused on providing businesses with specialized assistance for their accounting and finance functions to enable leadership to focus on developing their business. Zeroed-In brings a new approach to its services, filling the gaps Kyle and John noticed in the public accounting and professional services industry throughout their careers.
One year after the idea was born, Kyle and John started Zeroed-In Consulting. Since their start in 2021, they have grown their client base and team to attain remarkable success. On their journey towards establishing Zeroed-In as the firm for the future, they are redefining the formula of success for the professional services industry by focusing on employees and embracing the power of technology.
Practicing what they preach, Kyle and John are obsessed with the idea of growing a team of curious and collaborative individuals to create innovative and breakthrough ideas. At Zeroed-In Consulting, policies rewarding efficiency and learning with multiple cash bonuses are complemented with an open feedback environment to understand the most important things to an employee.
Excelling in providing specialized services to businesses and their accounting/finance function, they’re responsibly addressing the need for change in the face of the accelerating pace of business and technology by incentivizing team members to develop learning, especially in areas less common to an accountant such as programming and data science. The long-term goal is to assist companies in embracing and best utilizing business intelligence, automation, and other technologies that can improve all areas of a client’s business.
One of the most critical success factors at Zeroed-In is how team members complement their capabilities and perspectives. Kyle’s technical accounting expertise helps to ensure that a company’s transactions are adequately evaluated and presented. In contrast, John’s broad experience in operational accounting brings effectiveness and efficiency to the accounting and finance department.
Highlighting each member’s strengths and encouraging continuous improvement, Zeroed-In Consulting brings a full-service approach to its clients, providing value on multiple fronts and bringing diverse perspectives to help them grow in new and exciting ways.
