Kyle Murray CPA, CA
Kyle believes that the most satisfying part of his job is seeing a genuine smile on a client’s face. Perhaps that’s why he has a passion for small business and loves to work with both budding and experienced entrepreneurs. In fact, it has been a driving force behind his dedication to exceed client’s expectations.
After articling with MNP LLP. in 2010, he left to explore the world of small business accounting with Dorward & Company LLP., an Edmonton-based accounting firm. Now a Langley resident, Kyle continues his great work. He puts his diverse skillset and small business expertise to good use by helping businesses in and around the lower mainland.
When he’s not at the office, Kyle is busy hanging out with his wife and two young sons. He enjoys hiking the many great trails around the lower mainland or any kind of family outing. Between work and family, he’s a busy guy and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
Kyle also has a genuine interest in helping others and has assisted various not for profit groups in his local community and is looking for new opportunities to give back in the Langley area.
