For decades, Patrick A. Quinn (Pat) has applied his expertise in accounting and finance to help individuals and enterprises achieve their goals. Pat has particular insight into the unique challenges of small businesses, corporate executives, oil and gas companies, and municipal entities. He owned a successful accounting firm for 22 years. As CPA, Pat has prepared and filed many high-wealth, multi-state, multi-jurisdiction, and complex tax returns. At a large oil and gas company, Pat led an international staff of 100 and coordinated acquisition integration activities of several public company offerings.
As Contract CFO, CPA, and consultant, Pat has assisted companies large and small, through different stages of the business life cycle, from developing business plans to modeling mergers and acquisitions. He has helped businesses from the conception phase to IPO, guiding them along the way in tax and accounting strategies. He has designed and implemented financial, tax, and management reporting systems that shaped business decisions and met regulatory requirements.
Civic duty and community involvement is important to Pat, and he has brought the leadership skills he honed in business and as CPA to his community. As mayor of Broomfield, CO, he responded to the 2008 recession early on. Working in partnership with city staff, he helped develop a realistic plan that included monthly tracking that compared sales and property tax revenues to plan. By the end of his mayorship in 2013, Broomfield had reduced debt by 35% while increasing services to its residents.
He was the key architect of Broomfield’s “wildly” successful open space program. He worked with the finance director and city manager’s office in the development of a financing plan to acquire open space so that Broomfield could achieve its 40% open lands goal. His efforts garnered community support and Broomfield eventually passed, with huge margins, two ballot initiatives to authorize the financing plan. Pat was also a key member of a coalition responsible for securing over $400 million in financing for a Highway 36 project to solve traffic congestion.
Pat holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Colorado State University. He is a certified public account in Colorado and is a member of the Colorado Society of Certified Public Accounts and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
Pat is married with five daughters. He continues to be deeply involved in his community and is the President of the Broomfield Open Space Foundation.
