Keith I. Biddlecombe, CPA, CGA, CFE

As the founder of Biddlecombe & Associates, Keith also is the most experienced member of the team with over 39 years of experience in the field. Keith received his CGA designation in 1984 and his CFE (Certified Fraud Examiner) in 1996.

The firm started as a part-time practice in 1977, and then Keith commenced full-time operations in 1996 due to his commitment to stay close to his young family and also to be able to devote his full attention to his growing client base. The growth of the organization has spawned from referrals made by existing clients. The key to B&A’s success has been Keith’s mandate to provide a very personalized service to our entrepreneur and business owner clients; with the goal of essentially developing a “professional relationship” with the client based on confidence, trust, and “truly” understanding their challenges, needs and goals. The compliment of receiving referrals is a testimony to the “way we look after our clients”.
