Brad is a true thought-leader in his industry. He leverages technology to its maximum to eliminate the mundane for his clients and uses real-time data to deliver the kind of insight to his customers that you might expect from a CFO. I recommend him without hesitation. On a personal note, he is the kind of guy you want to have a beer with. Brad is fun, warm and his optimism makes him a natural leaders. He would be an asset to anyone lucky enough to hire him.
I run a few different types of businesses: a writer, an event organizer and an educator/speaker, so it’s been tricky for me to sit down and figure out how to use Quickbooks to the best of its ability. Working with Brad has allowed me to focus on the things I love about running a business, and easily manage the things that I don’t. Brad is incredibly helpful, attentive and responsive. We’ve only been working together a few months and I already feel like I’m more stable ground than ever before.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Brad as more than just a member of the Calgary Chamber, he has grown into a very good friend. He is truly an advocate for business with a flair for really getting to know people by name and fostering genuine relationships. If he can’t assist you, he certainly will bring you into his network and find common links. He has a great sense of humor and brings his own brand of likability everywhere he goes and always makes our new members feel special. I know him to be forward thinking and on top of whats new in the digital accounting space. I would recommend Brad to bring to any new business his zest and genuine desire to help within his professional capacity.
What I thought was going to be an a QuickBooks and accounting nightmare, Brad was able to fix and take care of for me in an extremely fast and professional manner. I am more than happy and pleased with the services of Brad.
Since meeting Brad at a networking event, I can’t imagine not having him as a part of our team. His experience over the years with so many different aspects of bookkeeping and accounting make sure that every time he comes in and works with us, we improve a process or learn something new. I find so much value working with Brad. I truly feel that he works with my team as if they were his own. His ideas and suggestions are specifically for my company and how we want to grow. It’s as if he is an investor himself. I have worked with other people in the same space as him in the past and never felt the level of comfort as I do working with Brad. If you are reading this review because you are considering reaching out to Brad and seeing if he can help – STOP READING – just do it. I guarantee that if he can’t help, he can point you to someone that can do exactly what you need.
Brad has been a constant voice of positivity and support since I met him. Calgary is a better place because of Brad Celmainis. I am aware of the quality of his work and had the fortune to work with him and some of his clients. He cares, he does a good job, he is detailed and accepts nothing but top notch work for his clients. I would highly recommend his services as CFO and for his accounting strategy, consulting and bookkeeping. I can guarantee you will be in a better place with your business after dealing with Brad. His network is vast and knowledge is cutting edge on new cloud based accounting systems and tools.
Brad and his team are great to work with. We came from a very poor service environment and I can’t say how grateful I am to have someone who communicates, gets things done on time and is always adding extra value with tips and tricks on how to save time with QBO. Thanks for all that you guys do!
Brad is the QBO expert you want on your side. When I was deciding about changing my accounting software, Brad was more than happy to sit down and walk me through QBO. He answered all(and I mean ALL) my questions in a language I understood (no accounting or bookkeeping jargon); he went over and above when I needed to get in touch with QBO, helping me find the solution I needed; and he always listened and showed a genuine care in supporting me and my QBO needs. There are few people who you can say genuinely care about helping people, but Brad is absolutely someone who cares. If you want support with QBO from a down-to-earth, genuine person who is willing to work with you, then Brad Celmainis is exactly who you want to work with. Thank you, Brad!
Brad was generous with his time and advice setting me up with bookkeeping services. I wasn’t worth anywhere near the amount of time he took with me which I consider a huge indicator of a good guy!
Brad has been an amazing resource for me. He helped me get set up with Quickbooks Online and all my necessary bookkeeping. He’s also super responsive with any questions I have. Highly recommend him.
Brad is an excellent resource for our business! He always goes over and above when we look to him for guidance. I highly (highly!) recommend Brad to any startup or small business. Love him.
It was a pleasure working with Brad. Throughout our time working together, I became attracted to Brad’s loyalty, as well as his passion. These are two of Brad’s most admirable qualities and they shine through in both his work and his relationships.
The various positions that Brad has held over his career have allowed him to become a well versed and knowledgeable businessman. Brad’s leadership and experience help him bring out the best in his employees while challenging and encouraging them to achieve their goals.
I worked with Brad on a very complicated IT project where the objective was to combine two separate networks into a terminal server environment. Brad also had to facilitate the merging on the company’s CRM software. Brad was an excellent communicator and was available 24-7. I had all the support I needed from him to complete the project. In the end, this was a very complicated project that could have easily ended badly. Brad’s dedication and tireless effort on this project made it a success.
I worked with Brad for almost four years. Brad is a professional at heart and truly understands how to lead his team in a direction that best fits the company’s vision. Even though we worked in different departments, I would consider Brad a mentor as his knowledge in operations management has helped me grow as a business professional.
