Ragu Rajaratnam, CPA, CA Manager, Audit and Advisory
The program of Accounting and Financial Management at the University of Waterloo provided me with an education that opened doors and enriched my prospects. The rigorous course of study, as well as the intense co-op program, not only shaped my thought processes at an early age, but also my ethics and work habits.
Joel Podbere, CPA, CA Partner, Audit and Advisory (A&A)
Just like sports figures such as Andrew Wiggins and Brett Hull, and political figures like Justin Trudeau, I have followed the career footsteps of my father, a chartered professional accountant. As my mother is a bookkeeper, my uncle a controller and my father’s uncle a chartered professional accountant, I guess it’s in the blood. Perhaps that’s why on entering McGill University in Montreal, I never considered any major other than accounting.
When I was in grade 10, a CPA came to our class and told us “CPAs rule the world.” I was sold.
I entered the accounting co-operative program at the University of Waterloo, where in my first year, during campus recruiting week, I was introduced to Crowe Soberman. My conversations with the larger firm representatives had been all about prestige and privilege, but Crowe Soberman was different.
Michael Hummel, HBA, CPA, CA Manager, Audit and Advisory (A&A)
I am fascinated by business, and I chose to become a CPA because of the opportunity to learn about and work with a wide variety of businesses. As a CPA at Crowe Soberman, I not only do audit and tax work for our clients, but also act as a business advisor.
"The proof of the quality of Daniel’s evidence is the result of the trial – the jury awarded my client compensation for the loss of income (a seven figure sum) that mirrored Daniel’s reports and evidence almost to the letter."
