Our Team

Leo Titone MBA, CPA

Leo is our Founding CPA And Chief Executive Officer.

Unlike most CPA’s Leo is an advisor first, and a CPA second. Having received his MBA in Entrepreneurship in 1987 and his CPA in 1989, he worked for 12 years in corporate America as a Chief Financial Officer, Controller and Director of Operations.  

Recognizing there was a greater need outside of the traditional Taxes, Bookkeeping and Payroll functions, Leo formed Next Level CPA and Business Advisory Services.  The company grew for 17 years, until it was sold to a local CPA in Indianapolis.  In 2012, Leo took the same “outside the box” concept to the SW Florida area as CPA Tax Advisors.  

He believes in CPA Tax Advisors being the one source of trusted information to help you make the best business and individual financial decisions possible.
He brings nearly 35 years of proven business experience in financial management, accounting, bookkeeping, tax strategy, and more to reduce business and individual tax costs and fully optimize an organization’s finances.

Chuck Gribosky

Chuck is our Tax Manager and Enrolled Agent (EA)

Chuck is a tax mentor to individuals, small business owners and the self-employed.

As an IRS Enrolled Agent, providing client-based audit and collection representation since 1999, Chuck is extremely adept at getting the IRS off the taxpayer’s back. Having an undergraduate degree in Finance and an MBA, his approach is from an angle different from simply adding up the numbers. It is not uncommon for clients to use the words “miracle” or “magic” when describing his work.

Chuck’s nearly 30 years of experience include tax preparation, planning and consulting with a tax attorney and a tax software company. He can honestly say that he has provided services to clients in all 50 states. Most of his professional career was spent in Nashville where he helped small business, songwriters, producers, managers, and recording artists manage the financial ups and downs of music business taxes.

Sheryl is our Bookkeeper

A Florida Native, Sheryl began her career in the banking industry. Opening a small HVAC company in Lake County Fl, in 1992, her responsibilities were the overall bookkeeping, payroll, and operations of the company. She created procedures for and Sales, Service, Dispatch, Customer Service and Purchasing departments, growing, and managing the successful company to serve 4 central Florida counties with over 30 employees and 20 vehicles at the time of the sale in 2013.

2011-2013 Sheryl had the honor of being an active volunteer Treasurer and Board member for the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 219 in Fruitland Park, FL where she set up the bookkeeping system in QuickBooks and was hands on with all fundraising activities.

After selling the company, Sheryl moved to the Orlando area to be closer to family. There she began a bookkeeping service helping small companies clean up their books. This included all bookkeeping procedures and cleaning up the Balance Sheets with proper allocation of assets and liabilities. One of her expertise areas is helping the service industry to set up job costing for better profit reporting.

Moving back to SW Florida this year, Sheryl is now wanting to help you keep better records, and, of course, keep what you earn!
