During this period he honed his skills in cost accounting, inventory control and management accounting across various manufacturing platforms. In the position of Controller at several companies, Larry’s main focus was on restoring the businesses to good credit standing by managing assets and inventory to improve cash flow.
One of Larry’s most stimulating positions was as Special Project Manager of Mergers and Acquisitions for Sofco, Inc.

At the same time he was expanding his software engineering skills, Larry contributed his business knowledge and experience in helping to develop Commsoft’s first Business Plan and Budget. As the company grew from five employees to over 150 employees just six years later, Larry’s role continued to expand as he took on various management positions, culminating in his being named Commsoft’s Chief Operating Officer. Larry is proud to have been part of a management team which successfully led the company from annual sales of $2 million in 1995 to over $20 million in 1999. Larry later joined a national IT consulting firm before returning to his accounting roots full-time in 2002.
With his wealth of diverse experience, Larry now enjoys assisting small- and medium-sized businesses through his public accounting practice at Accounting For All.

Angela Iveson, Bookkeeper
Angela graduated from Albany Business College, where she earned her Associates Degree in Accounting and Business Administration in 1984. Immediately after graduation she went to work for Norstar Bank (later Key Bank) in the expense department.
In the 1990’s Angela joined a local CPA firm where she worked on client accounts side by side with staff accountants, handling receivables/payables, bank account reconciliation, sales taxes and payroll. After nine years she decided to go to work in private industry, working for several restaurants in the Capital District as a full charge bookkeeper and office manager.
Angela and her husband of 34 years have volunteered their time with Community Animal Action Project (CAAP), whose main goal is to trap, spay/neuter and release feral cats, as well as try and save as many kittens as possible and give them a chance at a good life by finding them permanent homes. The Ivesons have had to temporarily put these efforts on hold in order to care for her parents.
Angela’s favorite pastime is to paint ceramics, especially for her seven nieces and nephews. She has painted a Christmas ornament for each since birth. In fact, she has made so many her brother puts up a separate 6-foot Christmas tree (The Aunt Angela Tree) covered with all the ornaments she has made over the last 24 years — something she will continue to do as the family grows.
