Kevin Matthews is the Founder and President of Noble Accounting, LLC. Kevin started his career in England where, after spending 2 years as an auditor, he transitioned to working in the finance department of a hospital where he held several positions and worked in both the financial accounting and management accounting departments.
After moving to the US in 1999 and a brief stint in the transportation and technology sectors, Kevin returned to the nonprofit world in 2001. For the first 5 years he was an in-house CFO before taking a new CFO position and retaining the first organization on a consultant CFO basis. After another 5 years, Kevin joined an accounting firm as a partner, and both of his former organizations became clients of that firm. When he formed Noble, both clients followed him again. As the CFO of multiple organizations for more than 19 years, Kevin has a deep and broad knowledge of the nonprofit sector and has done everything from basic accounting tasks to being a member of the executive team creating a strategic vision.
In England Kevin qualified as a Certified Accounting Technician before going on to become a Fellow of the Chartered Certified Accountants, an international accountancy qualification equivalent to the US CPA. Kevin is also a Certified Fraud Examiner, a US qualification that he obtained after sadly realizing that nonprofit organizations are the victims of fraud on a disproportionate basis.
Kevin and Noble Accounting, LLC will now provide their independent accounting services and expertise on accounting, bookkeeping, finances, and fraud prevention to Care for Wild and its board of directors.
