About Us

Paul Kleniewski started PFK Accounting Group in 1991, but that’s only part of the story. Having graduated from The Whittemore School of Business at the University of New Hampshire with an MBA, Paul began his journey to where he is today.

Upon graduation, a mid-size accounting firm in Rhode Island, his lifetime home, recruited Paul. As a staff accountant, Paul was assigned to numerous accounts, with a variety of responsibilities. This was all good for some time, but soon the middling tasks had Paul itching for something more challenging in which he could use not just his accounting acumen, but also his business skills.

Paul moved along to become the comptroller of a large-scale industrial distribution company in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. There he was able to integrate his skills and interject his passions, and in due time rose to become the company’s CFO. The seas of change soon swept in and the company was acquired by a larger national interest. That company, impressed with what Paul had accomplished in terms of lean accounting practices, profitability, inventory management, and his natural ability to work collaboratively with others, asked him to stay on. He continued on for a period of 2 years as a division manager responsible for the preparation of internal financial statements and external SEC reports. However the shift from daily operational involvement to strictly corporate financial reporting left Paul dismayed and he eventually left the company.

There was interest in Paul’s skills by other local firms, but he decided at that point to hang out “his shingle” and make a go of it on his own. With three young daughters, a mortgage, and all the pressures of financial stability, Paul never wavered. His reputation, and his business, soon began to grow.

The rest, they say, is history. Now twenty plus years later, those children have grown, graduated from universities, and Paul continues on, providing his diverse clientele with solid accounting practices, practical business advice, and the always genial service that is natural for Paul.
