Arden Van Der Horst, CA
ARDEN VANDERHORST PROFESSIONAL CORPORATION
I have lived in the Whitby area most of my life with my wife, Lucinda, and three sons. As many of my clients and colleagues have come to appreciate and value, I have always believed in the entrepreneurial spirit and been a big supporter of small and medium sized businesses. An entrepreneur myself, I started my own accounting practice in the winter of 2003 from scratch, and have grown it over the past ten years into a successful practice with 3 full time employees serving small and medium sized businesses and not-for-profit organizations across the Durham Region and beyond. I feel I have been able to accomplish this because of my ability to understand the needs of small and medium sized business owners and ensure all clients are given the same high level of service no matter the size of their invoice. Yes, we are a small accounting firm but I believe that is our biggest advantage as we can offer our clients personalized service.
