FOUNDER'S EXPERIENCE


I started my work experience with World Industries, one of the leading international skateboarding companies in the world, which provided me with invaluable executive and operational experience.

 

World Industries was acquired by Kubic Marketing, a Holding Company that owned many skateboarding companies such as CCS Mail, a mail order skateboarding company.

 

Afterward I worked as a CEO, COO and CFO for Mastermind Distribution, an international company that marketed and sold well known brands in the skateboarding industry around the globe.

 

I gained a tremendous amount of experience as a business owner above and beyond accounting. Your business will gain from my experience.

 

 

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

 

"Abed was very responsive. I called him on Friday evening and he came to my office on Sunday afternoon. I thought I had a good setup and solid data. But it was not the case. Abed analyzed the data and corrected it. Now I truly have the accurate and complete set up I strived to achieve. I HAVE WORKED WITH MANY PROADVISORS BUT NONE COMES CLOSE TO ABED’S LEVEL OF EXPERTISE OF THE SOFTWARE AND PATIENCE TO TRAIN ME AND MY STAFF!
