NUMBER OF WHEELS JAY PREFERS FOR GETTING AROUND THE TWIN CITIES.
Jay Dunphy, CPA
As a Business Partner, Jay empowers his clients with tax and accounting related strategies they can implement in their professional and personal lives.
An avid cyclist, Jay knows what it’s like to power through a tough climb. But he’s not one to simply grind it out. Jay prefers to use strategy—a punch of the pedal here, a hop out of the saddle there—to conquer the hills he encounters on his regular rides.
Perhaps this is because Jay relies on strategy to help his clients overcome their proverbial mountains, too. In his role as a Business Partner, he advises private companies while also overseeing the firm’s outsourced business accounting services delivered through AEM Financial Solutions. Jay remains committed to a core principle of his 25-year-plus practice to help his clients navigate bumps in the road: plan ahead for challenges and follow a strategic approach.
Having consulted with businesses across several industries, Jay is a particularly valuable sounding board for owners of closely held businesses, high-net-worth individuals, and entrepreneurs. His expertise ranges from tax, audit, and accounting specialty areas to financial reporting and business advisory services. Jay also specializes in helping businesses with strategic planning, financial forecasting, outsourcing, process improvement, and fraud investigation.
When he’s not plotting the best approach to a challenging hill or business issue, Jay is likely to be found competing on the soccer field or relaxing with family and friends.
