Member of Russell Bedford International, a global network of independent professional service firms.
Manager of Accounting Services
Eva Koziel joined Cray Kaiser in 2016. As part of CK’s Accounting Services team, Eva has played an integral role in helping develop this department for the firm. Eva’s consulting and advising offer businesses a range of support – from acting as an outsourced controller, taking the lead on creating and implementing templates for PPP that were ranked #1 nationally, advising and assisting clients with ERC eligibility, and claiming ERC credits which total close to $20 million to date, to implementing accounting, bookkeeping, and training services for clients with the support of a growing accounting services staff.
Eva works closely with clients to review, advise and implement processes to help them manage their accounting needs. Her goal is to provide them with the financial information they need to succeed. To support the operations of the firm, Eva specializes in business development and client onboarding.
Prior to joining the CK team, Eva worked for three years in public accounting with a focus on tax accounting. She then spent 15 years in the private sector as a controller and business owner for her family-owned business. Her hands-on experience working in a business that is core to CK’s competency gives her incredible insight into what her clients experience day-to-day. This is what fuels Eva’s passion for her job. She loves the daily interactions with clients and working with them as a partner and advisor to solve problems and foster growth. She hopes to empower them with the tools and information they need to succeed not just in accounting, but with their businesses overall.
Eva earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from DePaul University.
