Tony A. Pizzuti

Shareholder

CPA, CCIFP

Background

Born and raised in the Portland metro area, Tony Pizzuti first chose to study accounting at the University of Oregon because of what he saw as a mix of stability and flexibility in the industry and viewed accounting as a foundational aspect of any business. Having been with Geffen Mesher since the mid-90s, Tony is well-equipped and prepared to handle high-level auditing and accounting needs for clients in any industry. He has a particular appreciation for the ones where people get their hands dirty, including construction and vineyards, to name a few. “When people go to work with their hands, it’s as if their work ethic is literally on display every day. That’s intriguing to me, and appeals to my own work ethic.”

Outside of the office, Tony is a dedicated father and an avid musician. You might even hear him holding down the bass or rhythm guitar during an extended jam. Watching his two young daughters grow up is a thrill for him, and when the family gets away, they like to hit the ski slopes throughout the region.
