Peter Berry, CPA, CA
Senior Manager

When did you start with Welch LLP?

I started full time in September 2010, although I did 5 summer work terms before that!

Your current position/group/any specialization at Welch?

I am a Manager. The team that I manage is very general doing both assurance and tax work for many different industries, including (but not limited to) real estate and not-for-profits. In addition to being a CPA, CA, I am also a Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP) and as such I do a lot of estate planning and I work a lot with executors of estates.

Best experience at Welch so far?

It is very difficult to choose just one. Since the variety of work is so great, no two days are the same and every day is new and exciting. I really enjoy working with clients, getting to know their businesses and helping them achieve their goals. The best experience occurs when a client has success and recognizes that the success would not have been possible without our work and expertise.
