Founded in 1993, Accounting Partners has grown from an idea to a standard of excellence in the contingency staffing and contract staffing world.

Our company's growth and development has paralleled many classic growth scenarios. Our first office was a small apartment in Bellevue, Washington where founders Ted & Stephanie Macauley first set up shop. While they would like you to believe that it was a healthy work / personal life balance that led them to stop working at 4:00 every afternoon, they later admitted that it was the fact that they had no overhead lighting for their first month of operation and their wall lights didn't function, so they had to stop because it was Seattle...it was the winter and...it was dark by 4:00!

Ted's background in staffing came at an early age as his father, Walt, was CEO of a staffing company called ADIA which he eventually grew to $1 Billion in Sales and took public. Growing up, Ted recalls being exposed to staffing from a very early age. Ted couldn't go play with the other kids in the neighborhood until he recruited and interviewed a few friends to come over to help with chores around the house. Before getting any dessert, he would have to make 50 marketing calls. Outside of his staffing industry blood, Ted graduated from Yale University, worked as an Investment Banker in New York for a few years and then headed back to business school at UCLA. After this, he worked for Chevron USA in a management training program before starting Accounting Partners with his wife, Stephanie. Ted and his wife live in the Bay Area with their two young boys.

As a company, we have grown a long way since those early days in a small apartment in Bellevue. We now have offices in Bellevue, WA, Phoenix, AZ, San Ramon, CA and Santa Clara, CA. Our firm is committed to growth while maintaining its excellence and focus on customer service and specialization. When we first opened our doors, we espoused that the world didn't need another generalist staffing firm and that belief still drives a lot of our thinking and actions today.

We believe in working hard in a fast paced, energetic, light hearted environment. We never take ourselves too serious and bend over backwards for our clients.
