Teamwork, Reliability & Value
Small businesses today face many challenges: Finding new customers, hiring and managing the right people to do the work, making sure everyone is paid properly, and planning for the future while your business landscape changes daily. We invite you to learn more about our bookkeeping services team, and the unique blend of expertise, customer service and value we bring to every client relationship.
Eric founded Drive Accounting in 2000, and today serves as a Partner/CEO, dedicating his time mainly to building relationships with Drive’s clients and trusted advisors. He also has a hand in process creation and accounting advisory, helping others streamline their own businesses, and is incredibly proud of the bookkeeping services team and culture he and his business partner have built at Drive. Eric is from Sherwood, Oregon, and when he’s not working, he enjoys cooking, woodworking, camping, and playing games with family and friends. He strives to be the type of father and husband that his two sons use as a model when they become husbands and fathers themselves.
Ted is a Partner/COO at Drive Accounting. A Southern California native, he moved to Oregon in 2002. Ted acts as a liaison between clients and the production team to make sure that everyone at Drive can move forward with any projections they may be working on, allowing the rest of the bookkeeping services team to focus on production. During his rare moments away from the office, Ted enjoys going on long road trips with his wife and two sons, spending time in the garden, and getting involved in the community by coaching youth sports.
Jack has been a QuickBooks Consultant with Drive since January 2020. Sometimes a production level bookkeeper and sometimes controller, sometimes consultant. Jack untangles difficult books and helps clients find their way through the processes of tracking their financials. Originally from Sitka, Alaska, Jack has a lifelong love of music. He has been a DJ since 1989 and an electronic music producer since 1991. He lives in Oregon with his partner in crime and their two daughters.
Michelle has been a Drive Accounting Admin/Bookkeeper since January of 2021. Originally from Clovis, California, she earned a BA in Cinema and Television Arts from CSU Northridge in 2012. She made the move to Oregon in fall 2020 with her two cats in tow. Michelle is largely responsible for Drive’s social media presence. She helps with data entry whenever she can to foster her newfound interest in bookkeeping services. Her passions include historical nonfiction, astrology, and writing, and she dabbles in graphic design and roller skating. She’s excited to be in the Pacific Northwest and can’t wait to explore her new home.
Luis joined Drive Accounting as a Senior Bookkeeper in November 2021. He tackles some of the more detailed bookkeeping for clients, and reviews the bookkeeping done by the rest of the team to ensure every file Drive completes each month has had at least two sets of eyes on it before financials are handed to our customers. Originally from Los Angeles, CA, Luis relocated to Oregon in 2019. An animal lover with a fascination with Space and a knack for puzzles, he prides himself on having achieved his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a focus in Accounting.
Salena joined Drive as a Bookkeeper in October 2021. New to the world of accounting, she’s enthusiastic about learning new skills and mastering the ins and outs of monthly bookkeeping. She prides herself on bringing an open mindset wherever she goes and overcoming any challenges in her path. When she’s not at Drive, Salena enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing Magic: The Gathering, and listening to whatever genre of music fits her mood at the moment.
Eric, Ted and their team at Drive have been great to work with over the years. They are competitively priced and do fantastic work! I highly recommend them and refer my clients to Drive regularly.
