Over the last 25 years, since he began in public practice, Luigi Porretta has forged a very unique and eclectic business background.
In 1993, Luigi launched his own public accounting practice in Vaughan providing tax, accounting and business advisory services to a diverse and dynamic clientele. Several years later Luigi saw personal financial planning as the next natural step in servicing his clients and in 1999 earned his CFP designation. His practice subsequently included a branch office of IPC (Investment Planning Council of Canada) which assisted clients realize their financial, retirement and estate planning goals.
It wasn’t until 2003 that Luigi Porretta experienced his biggest challenge when he founded and incubated a modest manufacturing company into a successful mainstay earning the respect of an entire industry. Over an eight year period he grew this completely unknown start-up company of 4,500 square feet, one employee and no customer base into over 27,000 square feet, 15 employees and over $3.3 million in sales. Being instrumental in every facet of business development, it was here that Luigi elevated his business acumen and evolved into a true businessman and entrepreneur. Since divesting of his interest in 2011, the company Luigi Porretta founded with the fundamentals he instilled in it, has grown to over 80,000 sq. ft. today.
Being accomplished in public accounting, personal financial planning and entrepreneurship, Luigi can now truly relate to the challenges facing today’s business owners, and can assist them much beyond their accounting needs.
