Brad SeverinCPA, CA, CFP, TEP
Principal Moodys Private Client Accounting

“The heartbeat of our Canadian economy is the entrepreneur…and no one is more deserving of the best possible advice to achieve success than those who choose to risk it all as a business owner. That is my mission…to walk hand in hand with entrepreneurs as they seek success for them and their families.”

Brad was once described as an “eminent tax accountant” by former federal Finance Minister and Prime Minister Paul Martin. That’s high praise indeed. With more than 25 years of experience as a tax professional, he specializes in consulting in the areas of Canadian and international taxation matters including corporate reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions and succession planning for family-owned businesses. As a former high school teacher, Brad knows how to command an audience. He has led thoughtful and insightful lectures in front of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Alberta, the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada, and the Canadian Tax Foundation (just to name a few). He has also been a frequent subject expert to the media on income tax matters. Away from the office, Brad enjoys golf, hockey, wakesurfing, reading and playing guitar.
