My name is Ricky Echeverria and I am the Founder and President of Echevy & Associates, Inc. I am born and raised in Los Angeles CA, growing up in Silverlake (before it was hipster) and now reside on the Westside. I am a Certified Public Accountant and hold a Masters in Taxation from the University of Southern California. After 10 years of working at a Public Accounting Firm, I decided to follow my dream of being a business owner. Throughout my CPA career I have specialized in business and personal tax returns, with an emphasis in the real estate and entertainment industry. I've always enjoyed learning and love to integrate my passions with work. As a result, I am also able to provide services for start-ups, international taxation and professional athletes.
My mission as a CPA is to build a long lasting relationship and to educate to my clients. I enjoy working together as a team and with your advisors, which may include bankers, attorneys, investment advisors, estate planners, and insurance professionals to help you meet your current and long term goals. I may be a one person CPA Firm, but I've built an amazing network of professionals to provide resources of a large firm.
Aside from being a CPA, I enjoy training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, soccer and basketball. I'll take any chance I get to travel around the world and also, speak fluent Spanish and conversational Portuguese.
