Why Team CGA?




Decisions are tough, and convincing you - as a decision maker - to fork out cash for services you're not sure you need might feel a little uncomfortable.  So, rather than talking you into hiring Team CGA, we want you to convince yourself that we really are the best at what we do and that we can work to your advantage.  In fact, we're so sure that partnering with CGA to make your business better is a good, no, a smart move, that we're willing to sit with you for a one-hour consult to troubleshoot whatever issue is on your plate at that moment.  We'll even tell you if we're the right fit or not because we don't want you to spend your hard-earned dough on a service you don't need.  So, bring it on.  But, before you bring it, consider this ace up our sleeve:

  • Four service areas, with teams that use an integrated approach to achieve greater efficiency and superior results
  • Industry knowledge and expertise
  • Personalized service and support 
  • Industry and business analytics and reports tailored to your needs
  • A multidisciplinary approach that results in on-the-spot, proactive solutions
  • Development and training of staff and leadership  

It's our business to know your business, inside and out. You could call us the holy grail of professional services teams. We'd be okay with that.

Why We Rock

Why We Rock






In the vein of how we view teamwork, we take diversity very seriously.  In fact, we not only have a unique cross-section of ethnically and racially diverse employees, we've identified the characteristics that make our people the perfect fit for Team CGA.  Here's a glimpse into who we are:

First things first... Academics:

  • Ivy League and Top-Tier Schools. 70% of our team members have received undergraduate and graduate degrees, and post-graduate diplomas and certificates from Ivy League and Top-Tier schools, including University of Oxford, Columbia University, Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania, Vanderbilt University, University of Cambridge, UCLA, New York University, Boston University, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and Fudan University.

  • Higher Education. 67% of our employees have Masters Degrees and higher.

  • Professional Licenses. 71% have professional licenses (e.g. Esq., CPA, CMA, CFA PHR, or other).

  • Languages. 93% have bilingual proficiency, and current languages that are spoken are: Italian, Spanish, French, Bulgarian, Portuguese, Arabic, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Japanese.

  • Academic Rigor. 100% of our people are trained to be academically rigorous when approaching client problems.

But, wait... it gets even better.

  • Here's a breakdown of our formal academic backgrounds (in random order):

    • 57% are formally trained in Accounting. How about them apples?

    • 45% are Economists... Gives you the warm and fuzzies.

    • 27% have a background in Law... All. Things. Legal.

    • 27% are Human Resources gurus.

    • 58% can talk your ears off about Business Administration…show-offs.

    • 14% are Organizational Psychologists with a fervor for understanding human behavior. We keep them in line with their analyzing.

    • 65% have spent hour after hour coming up with statistically significant data. Statisticians: fabulously nerdy.

    • 25% are known Strategists with a formal education in... Strategy. Like our resident Psychologists, we keep them in check, too.

    • 29% have specialized formation in Financial Economics. So fancy.

And, to further our Awesomeness...

  • 100% of Team CGA employees have worked in foreign markets, across an array of industries.

  • 89% of our employees have resided or worked in a foreign country (wouldn't you love to be a fly on our walls to hear the crazy stories we share?).

  • 100% of Team CGA employees have a unique cultural and ethnic background, which makes us all very tied to our roots. In fact, our people are either first or second generation Americans, or foreign-born and naturalized American citizens. So, we are pretty much the reason people call the US a melting pot... because we are the UN, also on steroids. And, don't get us started on foods. You should see our potluck Fridays.

Our people have the agility needed to go from one context to another, adapt quickly, and begin to critically engage.  This recipe for talent isn't an accident.
