Sophie’s dedication to our clients’ success is a hallmark of her work. Gabe Virdaru, CPA was also promoted to Senior Staff Associate, after starting with CJBS in 2020 and working diligently in the tax department. His positive energy and ability to find the “why” behind the numbers, along with his excellent communication skills, go a long way when collaborating with his team members and clients alike. 

Also newly promoted to Senior Staff Associates are Barbara Lis and Wendy Li, CPA.
