From Engineering to Accounting – Our Story 

Leadership Team Founder And Principal - Mike Faremouth

Mike Faremouth
Owner/Principal, Engineered Accounting Solutions, LLC

Mike started EAS in 2017 (formerly, The Mobile Accountant), dedicated to serving small businesses.

A Career Shift from Engineering to Accounting, Why?

I always wanted to be an Accountant, even when I was working as an Engineer! My father worked at Ford Motor Co. for 32 years as an Accountant, so that’s probably where I got it. I’ve always enjoyed working with numbers and data and interpreting the practical impacts to business from solid data.

Unable to obtain his CPA credential (because of hiring practices) after passing the exam in 2016, Mike started his own firm to help the underserved small business market, targeting Construction Contractors, Small Manufacturer’s and Transport and Logistics Providers.

Prior to this, Mike was an Adjunct Faculty Instructor at Oakland Community College where he taught a four-credit hour Managerial Accounting course. Concurrent to this, he was also an Tutor/Exam Prep Instructor, at Walsh College where he assisted students at all levels of accounting from introductory coursework through CPA Exam prep. 

Previous to his work in accounting, he held positions with several manufacturing firms including Remy International (as a Project Manager) and Rostra Accessories (as a Product Line Manager) for Automotive Aftermarket systems and components. At Rostra, he was successful in developing a database tool and process to prioritize all projects based on cost, timing and resources required to develop and launch.

In addition, Mike held positions with Hitachi Automotive Systems (as a Sr. Program Manager for hybrid electric motors and Li-Ion battery packs), and Ford Motor/Visteon (in various roles related to energy management and vehicle exterior lighting). At Hitachi, he oversaw the launch of Hitachi’s first complete hybrid system for the GM Saturn Vue vehicle.

On a Lighter Note – A Little Humor

Accountant Humor         

What is the definition of an Accountant?  

Someone who solves a problem you didn’t know you had, in a way you don’t understand!

More Humor

You should try and be subtle and tactful in telling someone when they’re wrong. The video in this link is not that example.
