Visionary. Strategist. Connector. Elizabeth Hale transforms growth-minded companies and demystifies complex tax strategies as CEO of eeCPA. For more than 30 years, she has helped entrepreneurs, investors, family offices and commercial real estate developers pinpoint new and creative avenues for growth while mitigating risk.
A Lifelong Entrepreneur
The entrepreneurial life is innate to Elizabeth. From her first venture at just 8-years-old selling greeting cards door-to-door, to the wholesale distribution center she built and sold by the time she turned 30, Elizabeth personally and professionally understands the challenges fellow business owners face ― and how to overcome them.
Elizabeth founded eeCPA in 2004 to help driven and unconventional entrepreneurs achieve their dreams and reach their potential, creatively and profitably. Complementing the full array of family offices services ― from tax strategy and compliance to full-service outsourced finance departments ― she founded The Cash Source in 2018, which provides hard money lending when banks have restricted credit. With a network of investors, she funds in as few as five days.
