"Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning." - Bill Gates


Joseph Chialastri

I am a dynamic and accomplished professional with more than 30 years of experience. My areas of expertise include Internal Auditing, Financial Industry Consulting, Business Intelligence implementations, Forensic Accounting as well as Local, State and US Government Accounting. Over the years I have managed large complex projects throughout the United States with a high degree of success. I am a motivated, results driven executive with wide-ranging experience across multiple industries. Outside of work you can find me at the beach, golfing, rowing or riding my bicycle.

Persistent & Motivated

I seek constant improvement with each meeting and presentation. Perfection is impossible but improvement occurs every day. I have a wide range of experience that applies in many industries. Being a persistent individual, I have a reputation to stay with something until it is done to the customer's satisfaction. I provide any company with a focused and results-oriented employee who strives for success no matter the task.

Enthusiastic Professional

I have the energy and enthusiasm of a person in his twenties but the experience and body of work of someone in his fifties. It is important to be excited about what you are doing. When you are enthusiastic others will be too, creating a more pleasant environment. I love all people and am comfortable talking to anyone. I like learning about people and what makes them tick. I appreciate working in a team, being able to offer up solutions, get input from others, and witness a team's ability to bounce ideas off of each other in order to reach a common goal.

Trustworthy & Dedicated

A person's word is their bond so being trustworthy and having credibility is vital in all situations. Over the more than 30 years of professional life, I have made it my highest priority to bring closure to all outstanding customer issues by following up and maintaining contact with the customer and gauge their satisfaction. They in turn see me as a trusted advisor who will provide them with the proper guidance, meaning that we can have an outstanding relationship.
