Bob's Profile

 

Bob Postgate
graduated with honors from Upsala College in 1967 and then joined the tax department of Price Waterhouse in the firm's Newark, NJ office. After two years, Bob moved to NYC and became a member of Arthur Young's New York office as a senior tax specialist.

In 1971 Bob passed his CPA exams and was certified for professional practice by the University of the State of NY. At this time he joined the NY State Society of CPA's and the American Institute of CPA's.

Shortly thereafter, Bob took a leave of absence from the accounting profession for graduate studies under a Bexley fellowship at Colgate Rochester Divinity School. After his second year, however, he was back at Price Waterhouse serving in the firm's Rochester, NY tax department, and shortly thereafter became tax manager of a local Rochester CPA firm.

In July 1977, Bob opened his own accounting practice, initially specializing in tax matters, but soon taking on small companies as clients that required general accounting services, including audits and reviewed financial statements.

In these early years, Bob also served as an adjunct professor at Saint John Fisher College, where he taught introductory accounting courses in the evenings. As the accounting firm grew, Bob served as managing principal and later as the firm's audit principal.

Today, Bob lives with his wife Maria in Brighton, NY. He continues to serve a select group of clients in the upstate NY area as well as clients in Florida, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Vermont and North Carolina.
