David Siegel, CPA
Fintech | ESG | Assurance Partner
Who I work with
I work closely with CFOs and business owners of high-growth, privately held Financial Technology (FinTech) businesses. I advise acquisitive private equity-backed, cross-border companies, and I help founder-led, closely held businesses navigate the transition to institutional ownership.
One of my many specialties is helping tech businesses improve recurring revenue in preparation for transactions. I excel at complicated financial reporting and explaining complex accounting concepts to clients.
I help clients develop their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives. I work with companies to develop their ESG strategies and the reporting frameworks and metrics used to monitor their programs.
2020 enabled me to develop a deep understanding of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), and I have helped hundreds of companies across the United States in many different industries obtain PPP loans, strategize the use of their funds and obtain PPP forgiveness.
Results I have delivered
My industry experience in real estate, manufacturing and professional services provides my tech clients with perspectives they need to serve their customers in other industries.
