Meet Viet, CFE, CPA, Associate

By Viet Vu, CFE, CPA, Associate

Viet VuI was born in Hong Kong and came to Canada when I was five months old. I have lived in Vancouver for most of my life, except for the four years I spent in Toronto to attend Ryerson University. The laid-back west coast lifestyle definitely suits me better than the hustle and bustle of a large metropolitan city.

 

Prior to working at Clearline, I took on roles as an estimator, production coordinator, and systems administrator at a small book binding and finishing company.  While I developed a good understanding of business operations, I felt I was lacking in understanding of the financial side of the business. I decided to attend Langara College part-time to study accounting.

 

I joined Clearline as an Associate in September 2017, immediately after writing the CFE exam. Now, I help small business owners with compilation of their financial statements and corporate tax filings.

 

Working at Clearline provides me with a broad learning experience that aligns with my career goals. I also enjoy the family-like atmosphere, where we all know each other and everyone is always willing to help and give advice. 

 

Outside of the office, my guilty pleasure is watching Gold Rush Alaska.
