Nicholas L Potocska, MBA, CPA, CFE, CRFAC

Nick is the founder of NLP CPAs, P.C. and has over 40 years experience in the accounting industry. His high standards for quality of service date back to his employment with Ernst & Whinney (now Ernst & Young). The application of “Big Four” techniques and principles throughout his career enabled Nick to rise to the position of CFO of a private healthcare chain in Canada, and then to establish NLP CPAs. Nick thrives on solving problems, whether it’s for mergers & acquisitions, representing a client in an IRS audit, assisting with business start-ups or (re)financing, rebuilding prior year records for back-tax filing, researching tax rules to obtain the best possible tax positions, or cleaning up a client’s QuickBooks.
