Meet our Founder and CEO
Marie Torossian, CPA is #your10xcpa, and #notyourtypicalcpa!
She is a Chartered Global Management Accountant, Auditor, CFO, and an Author. She is the creator of the VALUEATION-MT® methodology, which helps her clients 10X their business!
The proprietary methodology is a gamechanger for business owners. It combines critical ingredients such as business valuation, financial analysis, processes and procedures, menu pricing, growth roadmap, etc. She uses this framework to coach clients to understand their business finances, make informed decisions, increase their business value, and live the life they want! As a 10X licensee, she mentors her clients in realizing their full potential!
Ms. Torossian started her career as an auditor at Berkowitz, Pollack, and Brant CPA firm in 2010. In May 2012, she joined the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. She soon accepted additional responsibilities to perform forecasts and projections, prepare the annual budgets, and manage the entire audit and tax preparation process.
In January 2015, she rose to the challenge to become the Controller and acting CFO. She implemented databases, designed accounting-related reports, and reviewed workflow processes. She managed the accounting team hiring, retention, training, and performance and administered organization-wide salaries and bonuses.
In 2017 she was promoted to Chief Administration and Finance Officer. She was responsible for the Chamber and its Foundation's administration and operations, including human resources and payroll, finance and accounting, banking, legal, information technology, grants administration, and facilities management. Additionally, she collaborated with volunteer-based professionals for the five-year strategic and reorganization plan.
By the end of 2016, Marie saw the need for small businesses to have the same guidance and resources as large corporations. As a result, she started offering consulting services to small businesses and, in 2020, launched her firm.
Ms. Torossian holds a master's degree in Accounting from Florida International University. She is a member of the Florida Institute of CPAs and the American Institute of CPAs.
Ms. Torossian's mission statement is "To live in God's grace, help those in need and make a difference in everyone's life." She describes herself in short as a leader, motivator, and mentor. She prides herself on her high ethical standards, discipline, and passion for helping her clients succeed. She enjoys the beautiful Florida waters with her husband and children during her free time.
Ms. Torossian loves to give back to her community. She serves as Incoming Chair of the FICPA North Dade/South Broward Chapter, Chair for the Florida Justice Center, CPA Advisor to ADP, and Treasurer to her Church.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Rosalba, Office Manager, Not for profit
"Marie is very knowledgeable, detail-oriented and organized with her work. She has taken our non-for-profit to the next level with accurate accounting by changing our cash accounting to accrual accounting, giving us more control of our real time finances and allowing us to make better decisions based on the financial statements she prepares for us and our board of directors."
Grandmaster Jeff , Owner, Martial Arts Studio
Unlike anyone I've ever run across in accounting (or pretty much any other business), Marie communicates with me. I'm a martial arts instructor. I have no problem taking on a team of ninja assassins.... but numbers baffle and intimidate me. Not anymore; not with Marie in my corner. She knows my business intimately and stays on top of my finances. She's reorganized and streamlined my books, categorized my expenses more effectively, and pointed out tons of ways to save time and money. She is an integral part of my business. Heck, at this point, I consider her family! If you're looking for someone to take the financial monkey off your back so you can do what you do best—run your business—you simply must give Marie Torossian a call. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Pat, CEO, Corporate Gifting
Marie was a tremendous asset to BirdieBox. She took over our books to move us toward GAAP standards. She also provided invaluable insight and helped us find our controller. She is a gem in every sense of the word. Highly recommend her!
