NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Work At Home Vintage Experts (WAHVE), a pioneer in a retiring talent solution for the insurance industry, is expanding with a similar service for accounting and finance staffing with the introduction of a new company — WAHVE Accounting.
Robert T. Criscuolo, CPA, has been named president and chief operating officer of WAHVE Accounting.
WAHVE is a contract staffing firm that brings companies and retiring professionals together across the country to meet their work needs. Companies receive skilled talent to match their long- or short-term requirements, while boomer professionals can extend their careers working from home as contractors.
Criscuolo joins WAHVE Accounting with 35 years of senior leadership experience. He previously was business development director for BDO USA’s Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey offices. He was the founding partner for two executive search and contract staffing firms specializing in accounting, including one that led to a national roll-up and successful IPO. His career began at PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he focused on emerging business clients.
Criscuolo predicts strong interest in contract accounting positions into the next decade. “The accounting job market is very tight,” he said. “Having a contractor work the hours a company needs — not necessarily 40 or 50 hours a week — is a financial boon for them. They get someone with superior skills, a strong work ethic and minimal distractions which results in a higher return on their investment.”
WAHVE Accounting will serve businesses of all sizes, across all industries. It’s an outgrowth of similar demand in the insurance industry, said Dr. Sharon Emek, founder and CEO. “Every business of every size and type needs an accounting professional — whether it be accounts payable or receivable, controller, finance manager, tax accountant payroll clerk or chief financial officer. And many businesses don’t need someone full time — they would love to have a part-time CFO.
“There are a lot of boomers in the accounting field, and they’re happy to work from anywhere,” she said.
