Join The Supporting Strategies Team
With the vision of becoming the go-to resource for outsourced bookkeeping and operational support services in her Greater Boston, MA community, Leslie Jorgensen founded Supporting Strategies in 2004. Business was thriving and team expansion was needed to serve the company's growing client roster. By offering seasoned bookkeeping and accounting professionals the chance to work on a part-time basis from home, she was able to build a highly skilled, experienced, expert team — one that could meet the same exceptionally high standards for client delight that are her hallmark.
With the Boston-based office flourishing, Leslie decided to pursue a franchising model for community-based bookkeeping and controller services. Our first franchise launched in 2013 and since then, we've grown to 76 franchisees throughout the U.S. who share our entrepreneurial spirit and passion for helping small and midsized businesses succeed.
Our guiding principle: Give clients the quality support they need, when they need it, and at a price they can afford.
