Dedicated financial experts, just for your restaurant

Vast HQ is nestled in the heart of the Truckee Meadows in Northern Nevada. Our unique location has been a huge influence on the development of our "do what you love" ideology. We love participating in our community, getting outside and freeing up our clients so they have the opportunity to do the same.

Leadership

Tanya

Tanya McCaffery

Founder, CEO

As head of The CFO Group, Tanya is one of the first to roll up her sleeves to help business owners improve their profitability and provide solutions that help them make smarter financial and tax decisions. Tanya’s easy approach to accounting is grounded in the belief that great accounting doesn’t have to be complicated or difficult. This unique approach has also earned her the title “The Financial Bodyguard” with many clients and colleagues - a title Tanya has come to love. Tanya believes that business owners are empowered with financial information.

Todd

Todd Sanneman

Vice President of Compliance

Car enthusiast Todd (or as we like to call him, Hot Rod Todd) has the last word on all things compliance at Vast. During his long career as a CPA, Todd has honed a keen eye for the small details that make a big difference to our clients. Anyone that has attended a “Todd Talk” will tell you, no-one at Vast knows more about doing things the right way, every time.

Tracey

Tracey Gravelle

Vice President of Fulfillment

Systems, processes and deadlines are Tracey’s jam! As the VP of fulfillment Tracey manages deadlines, work flow and delivery of all Vast services. Mom of three, Tracey, approaches business by thinking like a business owner – what do you need, what is important, how can we provide it? When she is not helping keep our team focused and organized, she also volunteers her time with the local Reno chapter of a national charity league and boys team charity.

Jenny

Jenny Coughlan

Director of Operations

Originally hailing from the U.K., you will often find Jenny either practicing her American accent, or doing whatever it takes to make sure Vast clients and team members have the best experience, always. Jenny’s favorite part of her job is helping people and creating connections – need something and not sure who to go to – Jenny’s your girl!

Matt Preston

Matt Preston

Tax Manager

Just as Vast is unlike your typical accounting firm, Matt is unlike your typical Tax Manager. When he isn’t helping small businesses by preparing tax returns and planning for taxes, or attending music festivals, Matt is helping the professionals at Vast perform to their highest potential, bringing positive change to the small businesses he works with.

Associates

Kyle

Kyle Farnworth

Vast Lead

When Nevada native Kyle is not pouring over a pivot-table or teaching the team the nuances of Excel, you will find him at the golf course, ball field, shooting range – you name it, Kyle does it! A huge supporter of the Reno local food scene, Kyle is passionate about helping restaurateurs understand their financial results and translate that into profit.

Jessica

Jessica Ruiz

Vast Lead

Jessica has a knack for making the complicated seem easy! Her ability to breakdown technical jargon and explain accounting principles endears her to her clients - she realizes the easier it is to digest, the easier it is to implement improvement. When Jessica is off the clock, some call her the “Karaoke Queen”!

Olivia

Olivia D'Souza

Vast Lead

Olivia isn’t always the loudest Accountant in the room, but she often has the best solutions. Olivia has a thoughtful and deliberate approach to her clients accounting, resulting in strong relationships and great results. As a new homeowner, Olivia spends a lot of her free-time renovating and improving her home, much like she does with her client’s books!

Erica Stroman

Senior Tech

When Bookworm Erica is not focused on delivering accurate and timely financial statements for our clients, you will find her buried in a good book! She may sound like your stereotypical accountant, but don’t be fooled, Erica has a fun-loving side which brings a smile to the whole Vast Team.

Kaitlyn Curry

Vast Tech

Strong woman competitor Kaitlyn’s love of numbers is evident in her work. A true technician, Kaitlyn prides herself on accuracy and efficiency, delivering the best product possible to our clients. She is also really great to have around if we need to move furniture!

Arthi Sachdev

Vast Tech

Globe-trotting, astrology lover Arthi has a passion for all things accounting and helping our clients. She is the go-to person in the Vast office when its all-hands on deck to get a project finished. Arthi is known in the Vast office for having a green-thumb, as she nurtures the office plants but she is best known for nurturing a team work environment.

Chelsea Lee

Client Excellence Coordinator

Animal lover Chelsea loves our clients as much as she loves her own pets (well, almost). Chelsea bridges the gap between our clients and the accounting team, facilitating the flow of information in and out of Vast to help our clients get their financial results when they need them!

Anna Rowland

Executive Assistant

At the Vast office you will usually find Anna juggling a million different projects to help keep the Vast team sane. When she is not at the Vast office you will find her in the Pilates studio imparting her knowledge of postural alignment and flexibility. Anna brings a much needed, and appreciated, calm energy to the Vast team.
