When Michael and Brian began the practice upon which they have built into Colagiovanni & Greene, they had a few serious goals: carry their personal values into the business, be strong client advocates, and provide excellent accounting, consulting and financial services.
Michael Colagiovanni is a graduate of John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. He is a CPA and CVA (Certified Valuation Analyst) with 18 years experience in the accounting profession.
"We must know where you are so we can show you where you can head. The substance of our work is to learn your business and help chart a course for you. In characterizing how I work, clients count on my research and consultation skills."
Brian Greene is a graduate of The Ohio State University. He is an Enrolled Agent with 17 years experience in the accounting profession. He holds both a Series 63, and a Series 6 License, and Brian is a Certified Fraud Examiner.
Brian's passion for soccer keeps him in the game and around it. He has been the Head Coach of the Beachwood High School soccer team since 1996, and before that the Assistant Head Coach for seven years. He has also coached at Shaker Heights High School. He holds a U.S.S.F. National C Coaching License.
Brian is active in his home community, serving as Treasurer and Board Member of the Geauga Humane Society, and Miracle League of Cleveland.
"We make sure clients see the big picture when they retain us. I find that with small businesses, clients might get caught up in the day-to-day elements of running a business. I work to remove the pressures, and help expand the financial vision."
