About Wolf CPA, A Professional Accountancy Corporation
Chris P. Wolf, CPA is the founder and president of Wolf CPA, Professional Accountancy Corp. His resume includes more than twenty years of practical accounting experience, and he has come a long ways since his first internship as an accounting clerk for a Bernardi Financial, Inc. a clothing manufacturer in the LA garment district back in 1995. Before that, he took some accounting courses while attending Cal State Fullerton in based on a career matching program that recommends professions such as a priest or forest ranger along with accounting based on personality traits. Having never even heard of accounting as a major, he decided to take a basic accounting course and discovered a natural aptitude for it. The concepts seemed to come easy for him while others in the class struggled. It was then he decided to pursue an accounting major. Ever since that moment he knew that he wanted to own his own business, but it wasn't easy. Chris earned his undergraduate studies at Cal State University San Bernardino in 1997, while concurrently working full time to support a growing family. For a while this meant leaving home at 4:30 AM and commuting two hours to Long Beach to work for a concrete contractor, then attend classes directly afterwards until 10 PM most nights to complete his degree. Even before that, when Chris was 19 he had an opportunity to serve as a full time volunteer missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 2 years in the Rome, Italy mission where he learned to speak Italian. He refers to his missionary experience as the best 2 years of his life. Soon after he met his lovely wife of 24 years and helped to raise 4 children who have brought meaning and purpose to his life. All of these experiences have helped build character, through trials and hardship, and gain appreciation for all that God had blessed him with. The bulk of his professional training and experience he gained from a prestigious local CPA firm, Roorda, Piquet and Bessee (RPB), Inc. where he worked from 1996 to 2002 as a staff accountant for small to mid-sized business clients, up to $120 mil. in gross sales. When he came to work for RPB, he started as an entry level accounting position, but quickly received advancements and promotions until he secured an accounting manager position with the firm and was able to complete his CPA certification in 1999. Chris has always expressed a deep sense of gratitude for the vast experience and friendships he received from RBP and especially Jim Roorda (Partner at RPB), who he acknowledges one of his greatest mentors. Although it was hard to leave such a great firm, it was time to move and gain a different set of skills, so he took a CFO/controller position with Canon Safe, a sizable manufacturing company in San Bernardino, where he assisted as upper management of this high end manufacturing company. But soon realized where his true passion lies, so in September 2002, he started WOLF CPA out of a small office in his home without a single client. By 2003 he opened an office in Yucaipa, CA and then in 2006 relocated to Redlands, CA. His hard work and big firm experience has helped to be the driving force for the success of this firm which now services small to mid-sized businesses, non-profits and individuals throughout Southern California, and in parts of Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Texas, Michigan and Hawaii. Chris has provided tax and accounting advise for his clients, which he is proud to report, has saved his clients up to a quarter of a million dollars in taxes. Chris has extensive experience in the construction, manufacturing, medical and dental field, restaurants, and other service related industries. Chris prides himself on being your "non-typical" accountant and enjoys hobbies such as doing triathlons, dirt bike riding, shooting, scuba diving, theater, travel, backpacking and just about any other outdoor activity.

Nick was first hired as an intern, but we were so impressed with him he was quickly made permanent.

Nick has a quiet and nonabrasive personality which is nice to have at the office and the customers really like working with. He's a genuine, kind and all-around nice guy, and we are lucky to have him. Thanks Nick.
