The founder, Michael Klein, CPA, CMA has over 12 years of experience in the financial services sector, with 10 years of tax, audit and public accounting experience serving the business and nonprofit industries, as well as several years serving clients as a financial advisor. Trained with knowledge and experience in accounting, tax, audit, and financial planning and management, Michael brings years of experience and a diverse array of client engagements and best practices to offer the market. The approach to service is not just as a ‘bookkeeper’ or ‘accountant,’ but as a strategic business partner, delivering high value-added input to the management decision-making process.
Specifically for nonprofits and churches, we offer a multitude of services designed to meet their financial accounting, reporting and analysis needs: complete outsourced accounting solutions, use of nonprofit industry-specific accounting systems with dynamic budgeting and reporting capabilities, grant writing and grants management services, assistance with internal control policy and procedure design, audit preparation and facilitation services, financial reviews & audits, tax preparation and planning, and much more. While most CPAs maintain the mindset of just a compliance partner, MPK Advisors & CPAs intends to become a key player and strategic advisor to our clients’ management teams. We believe our clients are seeking and deserve this level of service to help them make the best financial decisions.
We aim to be flexible to provide services tailored to your individual organization’s needs, whether your organization is just starting out and needs a complete outsourced accounting solution; or, you are already established and have an accountant or accounting team and need additional expertise and oversight from a firm with CPAs and experts in the field of nonprofit accounting and financial reporting. We are here to understand your unique mission and purpose and help you achieve this by coming alongside and supporting you in effectively navigating difficult financial requirements and decisions. The relationships we build with our clients are transformational, not just transactional!

The driving forces and values at MPK Advisors & CPAs are mission, purpose and knowledge (MPK). With that in mind, Michael Klein founded the company to innovate and redefine the role of the accountant and infuse mission, purpose and knowledge into relationships with clients. After so many years hearing taglines for CPAs like “bean counter,” “tax preparer” and “compliance person,” Michael realized that the perception, and (in many cases), the reality is that these phrases characterize the extent of what the public experiences when engaging with today’s accountants and CPAs. This was discouraging, especially when knowing what the greater public needed and deserved when turning to a CPA for help.
What he found was that clients weren’t just looking to get their tax return prepared at the end of the year, or for a set of financial statements to be ‘emailed over’ without any other interpretation of results. From talking to many individuals, families, nonprofit organizations and businesses in the community, the consistent feedback Michael received when asked what a client wanted in a CPA was: trusted advisor. The gap between the perception of many of today’s accountants and CPAs, and what could be, inspired Michael to found a firm that would change the role of the accountant from “compliance person” and “bean counter” to trusted advisor. This new relationship paradigm would start with understanding what mission and purpose drive clients, and bring years of knowledge and experience to guide their financial decisions.
