Sareen and Associates CPA Manassas, VA
  • Expired: over a month ago. Applications are no longer accepted.


We are actively searching for a high-energy CEO for a regional accounting firm based in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States. This is a new position; the owner of the firm has acted as the CEO since the founding of the company over 25 years ago. He now wishes to remove himself from the day-to-day operations of the company in order to allocate time to his other business interests, and is looking for a very specific type of candidate for the CEO position.

The firm currently has approximately 50 employees, including 7 CPAs, 5 EAs, accountants of different skill levels, sales and support people, and offers tax, accounting, payroll and business consulting services nationwide. However, activities focused in Virginia, Maryland, and DC. The corporate headquarters are in Manassas, located 30 minutes from DC. You will report to the owner and you are expected to be self-directed and need little guidance after an initial break-in period.

As noted above, we are searching for candidates with an unusual combination of skill and experience. Our ideal CEO candidate will check all of these boxes, at a minimum:

10+ years successfully managing 50+ people (including managerial staff) at multiple sites

10+ years of successfully managing operations

10+ years of successful P&L responsibility

Excellent personal sales ability

Skilled in managing sales and marketing personnel and processes
