Open Sky Consulting was started in 2015. It started as a dream by it’s founder, Brian Landes. Before OSC, Brian has worked in the banking and credit card industry for over 20 years. In 2006 he found himself starting a new career.
Always wanting to study accounting and taxation, he went back to school and obtained his Enrolled Agents license. He then began working at accounting firms here in the San Francisco Bay Area where he provided tax and bookkeeping services to high-net individuals and small business. While working at accounting firms he was frustrated with the lack of responsiveness in providing businesses with their financial information. Reports and insights necessary to run the business were often provided months after the fact. When Brian saw the changes in the accounting industry moving to the cloud and integrating with ecommerce and inventory systems, he knew there was a demand for bookkeeping services that were accurate and responsive to the needs of the small business owner.
