About Richard Winkel, CPA

Accounting and Advisory Services

My professional experience includes providing assurance services to both private and public companies in a variety of industries, such as non-profits, municipals, manufacturing, distribution, employee benefit plans and technology. I started my own CPA practice with the goal to provide quality service to clients in a more efficient manner than a firm with partners and staff can provide. Prior to starting my own CPA practice I worked for two of the largest international CPA firms and a regional CPA firm.

I have the experience and training to meet your needs, and I am focused enough to give you personal, timely service. The accounting and auditing profession has undergone significant changes in the past few years. In my public accounting experience I have worked on audits ranging from large public companies to small companies in a variety of industries. This wide range of experience has provided me with the most up to date technical training and audit expertise, while also providing me with a background to work with the unique issues that face small- and medium-sized organizations. I will provide quality services that are tailored to your organization’s operations and staff’s schedule.

Quality, affordable service allows your organization to receive improved service while minimizing the cost. Since I am a sole practitioner I can offer services in a very cost-effective manner. However, competitive pricing does not result in a decreased level of service. With my background in assurance services with large and small organizations I will perform your work with attention to detail in order to ensure your organization’s compliance with appropriate accounting practices and regulations. Since I do the work myself, I will ensure timely communication of issues and potential adjustments, and will always be available for discussions related to these matters.

As a sole practitioner I have the ability to complete your review in the timeliest manner possible. I can provide high-quality, efficient service because I am not taking time to train new staff, and there is no risk of new firm personnel having to learn your organization each year. I can provide high-quality, efficient service, allowing you to comply with the audit requirements without creating excessive time burdens on your staff.

I am a CPA and a licensed municipal auditor in Oregon. I am also a member of the Oregon Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

I received my Bachelor of Accountancy degree from the University of Delaware.
