Meet the Team
Rob Chaulk, Founder
Rob has always been a visionary. Having owned multiple businesses and over 26 rental properties, Rob always looks for the next opportunity. His intention: to help Canadians. It wasn’t until Rob encountered a major audit on his business affairs that he was prompted to seek an accountant to solve the problem. Unfortunately Rob could not find anyone who could give him the solutions that he needed. Rob quickly realized that if he had hired an expert tax accountant when he first began his business ventures, he would not have the issues he was facing today. In that moment Rob’s vision was born. In February 2011 Altitude Accounting Inc. opened for business. Rob was determined to be there to help Canadians build a solid foundation for their personal and business endeavors. Rob opened Altitude Accounting Inc. to help Canadians reduce their tax burden, provide education and support to growing businesses and to help ensure clients are audit ready at all time.
Rob travels worldwide teaching financial education to entrepreneurs. Rob is a mentor, coach and motivational speaker. Rob’s interests include hunting, fishing and travelling with his family.
