  Background  
     
  Successfully serving the greater Los Angeles area since 1991, K. Kimura & Company is owned and managed by Kaz Kimura CPA & CVA (Certified Valuation Analyst).  
     
  Prior to incorporating his own business, Mr. Kimura gained experience with a small CPA firm in Oakland for three years before moving on to positions sucessively of greater responsibility with a major national firm. Six years later, he transitioned from his position as Audit Manager to take on the new and exciting challenge of serving clients personally and directly with his newly created venture, K. Kimura and Company.  
     
  Besides his education, certifications and experience Mr. Kimura is an active member of the following associations:
    The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants
    The California Society of CPAs
    The Society of California Accountants
    The National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts
    The California Society of Enrolled Agents
 
     
  Recently, Mr. Kimura, who is from Osaka Japan, also wrote and published CPA Eno Michi, or A Way of Becoming an American CPA. His book is very highly recommended by Mr. Tsutomu Hotta, who was the lead attorney and prosecutor in a major Lockheed scandal case.  Mr. Kimura is presently working on his second book, which is soon to be published.  
     
 

Now serving small to medium-sized businesses, and in addition to outstanding local and international client service, Mr. Kimura’s leadership and team building skills are the drive behind his expansion beyond the greater Los Angeles area and into the Pan Pacific Basin, especially in China and Japan.

 
     
 

Integral to K. Kimura and Company’s growth is the outstanding account management of Wendy Zhong, CPA, who since early 2000 has been leading the drive in serving the American and Chinese communities here and abroad. Miss Zhong is originally from Shanghai, China; in addition to her duties at K. Kimura and Company, she is enrolled in the MBA program at California State University of Los Angeles.

 
   
 

Assisting Ms. Zhong and Mr. Kimura is Warren Shimada.  Mr. Shimada's education began at UCLA, where he achieved a B.A. in English Literature.  His education continued at UCLA extension, where he obtained a Certificate in Accounting.  He took the CPA exam directly after graduating and quickly passed all four sections in one sitting.  Currently, Mr. Shimada is in the process of completing a Masters in Business Taxation program.

   
 

In addition to our regular employees, K. Kimura and Company offers an internship program for qualified, motivated college students.  The internship allows the intern to gain entry-level experience into the workings of a CPA firm, and it also allows the company to keep an eye out for any potential future regular employees.

     
 

Overall, K. Kimura and Company’s objective is to help our clients grow by assisting them with managing funds wisely, providing accurate accounting data in a timely manner, offering adequate and proper accounting, tax and management advice, and by helping them focus on key issues, such as maximizing revenue while minimizing expenses.

 
     
 

We are continually improving our technical competence in accounting, tax and computer fields through ongoing education. We believe that technical competence is one of the most crucial elements in providing high quality services.
