Stefanie Ricchio CPA, CGA

For over two decades, I've worked at the intersection of finance strategy, transformation and humanity, driving value across technology, 3PL, and SaaS industries, mid-tier professional firms and not-for-profits as both a senior leader and a consultant.
Now, I focus on empowering value for you in your work and life and for organizations to drive commercial efficiencies and create environments for people to thrive.

Fusing function and freedom, I share a wealth of experience, expertise and energy in leading you to drive intelligence, develop influence and deliver impact to run organizations, succeed in business and enjoy the riches of life.

For corporate leaders, I'm an experienced Global Commercial Business Strategist; for Founders and Entrepreneurs, I'm an efficient Transformation and Efficiency Partner; for organizations, I'm an Expert Trainer and Facilitator; and for Professional Women, I'm an effective Career Value Coach.

My Story

Infusing my values of freedom, growth, service, justice, and abundance into everything I do, my vision is for people globally to be empowered, valued and free to navigate their personal and professional experiences with success.

I've bought this vision to life through my first book, The 5-I's and my global education program, The 5-I's Formula™ with the five elements that guide you to develop capabilities, grow confidence and gain consistency that empowers your personal and professional value.

But it's not always been a smooth ride. The 'road less travelled' has its challenges, and I have no regrets about taking it.

I know first-hand what it's like to back yourself and go big while streamlining your growth with systems and processes you can trust. As a trusted CPA, author, professor, award-winning published writer, international keynote, founding non-executive director, philanthropist, and Academic Advisory member for CPA Canada with a 0% rejection rate and 3x growth in under three years, and being a mother of 2 – I've been there too.
