Kerri Chiu: The Big Four Reasons I Joined Accordion

The Big 4 Reasons I Joined Accordion

Former consultant with EY’s Performance Improvement Finance Management practice, Kerri Chiu shares her big four reasons for joining the Accordion team:

Kerri Chiu is a Vice President at Accordion.

The opportunity

By joining Accordion, I was able to keep my finance focus but work for PE-backed firms across a wide range of industries and services. The work we do is always dynamic and meaningful since it is centered around transactions, and value creation is top of mind for both the portfolio company and sponsor. Unlike a big four firm where you have to specialize in a particular industry or function, Accordion is different. Among our team is a level of financial athleticism as our skills span across all services to the office of the CFO: FP&A, transaction-related support and operational accounting.

The Career Development

While staffing is always about timing, at Accordion it’s much more meaningful. Personal career development is one of the strongest considerations because we care about furthering individual growth, and hire individuals in whom we have confidence to work across services. Our suite of services and integration across practices allow us to strategically provide staff with new experiences.

The Growth

From my very first encounter with Accordion, I was struck by the entrepreneurial energy – and it’s contagious. We are truly building and expanding this firm together. Accordion is growing in a way that is both nimble and smart, constantly growing and elevating the way we service the private equity industry. Every team member gets to make their mark.

The Culture

There’s a definite “no task too small” attitude at Accordion. We all roll up our sleeves together – and there’s a great sense of camaraderie not only among consultants, but also among all supporting functions. When I’m not on the road with a client, I’m in the office because I want to be here, not because I have to “show face.”
