Stephan P. McMahon
CPA & CVA
Stephan is a licensed CPA in Massachusetts & Maine, as well as a Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA), with over 12 years of experience working with closely held businesses.
Dedicated to his clients, Stephan provides valuation, tax, accounting, and management advisory services. Viewing the growth of enterprise (business) value as an integral part of an owner’s strategy and responsibility Stephan focuses on proactively identifying and communicating critical business, regulatory and accounting solutions for his clients, helping them to improve efficiency, while reducing operational costs and risk. Given the current business climate, as challenging as it is, Stephan sees it as an opportunity to bring fresh ideas and creative solutions to his clients.
Stephan is highly involved in community endeavors on the Cape. He feels strongly about leaving a positive imprint on people’s lives both through professional and personal relationships, which is exemplified by his role on the Board of Directors for the Cape Cod Chamber and as President (Past) of the Board of Directors for the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce.
Personally, as a husband and father of two, time with family is paramount. Stephan is a perennial Little League coach in the Harwich – Chatham District, and coaches basketball in Harwich as well, and can be found on the sidelines of every Monomoy High School field hockey game – although he doesn’t understand the game at all. His latest family hobby uptake is fishing the Cape’s waters – there is a lot to still learn here but he is having fun trying!
Richard (Richie) recently graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with degrees in Accounting and Small Business Management. He joined our team in November, 2017 as a staff accountant. As the newest member of our team, it wasn’t long before he was known for his hardworking, self-motivating, and detail-oriented attributes – combined with previous experience in a local accounting firm he is a true asset to our firm and our clients.
When taking a break from numbers, Richie can be found hiking, playing basketball and baseball. He was even a starting pitcher for the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Corsairs Baseball team.
