The people behind RealTime CPA
Eric DeVriese, CPA
Eric DeVriese is the founder of RealTime CPAs and the man who recognized a shift coming to the accounting industry. He has over 20 years experience in tax, accounting and technology. With over 11 years in public accounting, Eric most enjoyed working at PricewaterhouseCoopers on their National team creating and rolling out new technology. Later working with Deloitte for several years and then in the tax department with DaimlerChrysler’s North American Head Quarters for a few years he decided to build a different kind of CPA firm.
In 2008, Eric opened DEVRIESE & ASSOCIATES, a full service CPA firm based on the coast in Northern Florida and has been building something different ever since. It has taken years of experience, knowledge, success and failure to finally bring to life RealTime CPAs. A truly one of a kind experience, that will soon be the way that much of the industry will be run.
