"Where corporate culture and careers converge."

I am Adrienne Aldridge, CPA, founder and small business owner of Accounting Professionals Agency, LLC.  Having over 20 years of experience as a subject-matter expert in the accounting profession, I’m able to accurately identify and vet top accounting and finance talent from senior analyst to CFO. I am competitively priced and in a strategic position to help you with your recruiting and placement needs. I would like an opportunity to talk to you further.  Your success is evaluated by how well you plan, confront problems, execute solutions and adapt to constant change. You can’t delegate your tacit knowledge and unique skills in support of your company’s business objectives. You can delegate your talent search and vetting responsibilities to an expert in the accounting profession with many years of management experience, robust recruiting tools and positioned to devote 100% of their time to this critical endeavor. Ultimately, I would like to be added to your company’s select recruiter list and meet with your management team and Human Resources department to confirm that my professional services are collaborative and my rates competitive. Please give some thought to those value-added activities you could be doing in place of marketing job positions, screening multiple applicants, conducting first-round interviews, performing background checks and negotiating salaries. 

There is a cost of hiring the wrong person, as you will see by reading the article below. Allow me to support you by calling my office at 919-924-4476 or emailing me at to learn more about what I can do to help your business and career.
