Clarence "Buddy" Utley

"Helping new business start-ups is my real joy," says Buddy. "Seeing a business grow and prosper under my tutelage really makes me tick!"

After several years in the corporate restaurant world (VP Finance for Mr. Gatti's Pizza chain, with over 150 locations; Taco Tico, Inc.; and KFC Corp), Buddy returned to his Henderson, Kentucky roots and set up shop as an independent accountant in Evansville. Buddy earned his degree in Accounting from Western Kentucky University and is a licensed CPA in Indiana and Texas. He is also a member of the American Institute of CPA's and the Indiana Society of CPA's. The Wine and Food Foundation of Texas was proud to have Buddy serve on their Board of Directors, and as Treasurer of their Executive Committee.

If given the opportunity, ask Buddy about his exploits with the real Colonel Sanders! He has many stories to share about his years of experience in corporate America and how they prepared him for his true passion: helping businesses through the gift of time.
