Island born, Island inspired!
Birrer Sangret LLP is the result of a dream that began in 2005 when Kyle Sangret and Philip Birrer met while studying for their business degrees at Vancouver Island University (VIU). The dream was to create a business that combined environmental and technology innovation with exceptional service to provide the highest quality accounting experience and the greenest accounting offices in Canada.
Growing up on Vancouver Island, countless hours were spent enjoying the outdoors and everything this beautiful island has to offer. From summers spent running, hiking, biking, or swimming, to winters spent snowboarding in the mountains, both grew a deep connection to nature, and an understanding that they wanted to have some part in protecting and preserving it. Just as their desire to provide quality service helped them develop their quality management systems, Kyle and Phil’s environmental awareness was also a huge part of the business development decisions.
You will find Phil managing the Nanaimo office. Phil loves to exercise and giving back to the community as he is all about the big picture and understands the importance of work-life balance. In addition to facilitating students in the CPA Professional Education Program, he is a board member of the Mid Island Velo Association and the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation.
Reaching out to the south island, Kyle is the managing partner of the Cobble Hill office. Kyle is all about the small details and making sure that our clients expectations are beyond being met. Kyle is working with the CPA Canada Financial Literacy Program to deliver financial literacy programs locally.
