Clayt Cornell

Responsive, methodical, conscientious.

Whatever the challenge may be, Clayt Cornell is full of practical, pragmatic solutions. He is also someone who prides himself on attention to deliverables and seamless execution. Clayt won’t typically use the term “deadline” as it suggests that there is an element of ‘last minute-ness’, which goes against his work philosophy. Clayt is composed under pressure, focused, versatile and has a great talent for engendering confidence in both clients and colleagues.

Clayt’s expertise includes accounting, financial reporting, assurance, taxation and business advisory. As a vice-president, he acts as a key client contact and supervises a team of professionals providing financial statement preparation, assurance and taxation services to corporations, as well as personal tax and other services to shareholders.

Clayt has participated in numerous mandates, including audits for Canadian and U.S. public companies, assurance and tax mandates for medium and large private companies and not-for- profit organizations, and other consulting services for companies and their shareholders. Clayt has also been involved in the audits of numerous not-for-profit organizations, work in which he justifiably takes great pride.
