Founder and CEO

The heart of our company, Kirk has worked in the accounting field for over a decade. He studied accounting at San Jose State and went on to work for multiple nationwide companies. However, working for large corporations was too, for lack of a better term, corporate. So in 2011 Kirk went into business for himself and started Nilson and Associates. 

Being able to work closely with his clients and get to know them, not just as numbers in his books but as actual people, is his favorite thing about running this company. This lets him connect with his clients and meet their needs more personally than he could otherwise. He loves being able to talk with his clients and help them make the best of their finances. 

When not in the office, Kirk spends his free time enjoying the outdoors, playing with his three boys, watching the Giants win, and playing the occasional game of softball. 

Schedule a consultation today, and you'll work directly with Kirk to see how his company can meet your needs.
