#OwningIt, Denise Gueli
Business: The Bonadio Group
Partner: Denise Gueli
When Denise decided to pursue a career in accounting, she thought having a secure job was a fair trade-off for not having much personal interaction in her work life. She isn’t afraid to admit she was wrong.
As a partner at The Bonadio Group, upstate New York’s largest independently owned CPA firm, Denise has spent the past 25 years helping businesses throughout Western New York grow. Working with clients ranging from manufacturers who make delicious candies, to auto dealers who help us get where we’re going in style, to construction companies that help us build a stronger future, Denise loves getting past the numbers and into the relationships.
She also has developed an unusual specialty that relates to the human side of accounting – auditing employee benefit plans. Denise is a “pension geek” who helps businesses monitor the pension plans that will provide a comfortable retirement for themselves and their employees.
Bonadio is known for “Business Consulting & More,” and uses an Ampersand as the symbol of the outstanding service provided to clients. Denise sees the & sign as a symbol for her clients’ success as well as her own – being able to use her unique blend of technical and people skills to build a career that has been secure, rewarding, & so much more.
