Matt Denny, a Santa Clarita CPA and partner at Denny & Company, LLP, shared that his parents first founded the firm in Glendale in 1984.
Before this, his father worked at First Interstate as a senior vice president, covering internal audits for all of the company’s banks.
“He was also a CPA; he had been with a big-eight accounting firm back in the 60s,” Denny said. “And then my mother was also a CPA.”
While raising six kids, Denny’s mother put herself through school.
“(She) went to a top-five accounting school and passed through it in a period when women were not encouraged,” Denny said. “She faced a lot of discrimination … back in the 70s.”
Once school was completed, Denny’s mothers worked for a few government agencies, including acting as controller for the City of Beverly Hills, before working for a Glendale-based CPA firm.
“Once she got her license, after passing the CPA exam, my dad retired from the bank and they started the practice together down in Glendale in 1984, 1985,” Denny said.
Denny himself was living in Montana, where his family had two offices, and acting as a state legislator before he decided to relocate to California.
Today, Denny continues to work with his mother at the Valencia-based Denny & Company, LLP.
“She’s right down the hall,” he said.
