MICHAEL D. KLIPPER, CPA

Chief Executive Officer / Founder

Mike’s accounting career started when he was an intern for a small Philadelphia area CPA firm. He continued to work full-time in the field and earned his CPA credentials after passing the exam in 2008. Over the next five years, he honed his skills and built relationships within the business community both in the Philadelphia region and nationally.

In 2013 Mike founded ENGAGE CPAs. The idea was to create a proactive and approachable accounting solution for small business owners and individuals. He and his team believe that there is more to accounting than preparing tax returns and financial statements. Mike loves working with clients, learning the intricacies of their business, and helping them achieve their goals. His goal as CEO of ENGAGE is for the firm to provide value to every business and individual they work with.

Mike grew up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and went on to attend Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, where he got his degree in Finance and Accounting. Mike and his wife Morgan, who was also his high school sweetheart, live in Skippack, PA, with their two daughters, Sadie and Tessa. Besides spending time with family, Mike enjoys relaxing on the beach, visiting wineries across the country, and trying new restaurants wherever he travels.

DAVID G. KORPEL

Chief Operating Officer

After graduating from college, David jumped right into public accounting, where he first met Mike. This experience established a well-rounded technical foundation. He gained a wealth of experience traveling the country performing audits, reviews, compilations, and tax engagements before joining up with Mike again as ENGAGE’s first employee.

As Chief Operating Officer, Dave is in charge of keeping our client relationships as fun, informative, educational, and productive as possible. He aims to be supportive, informative, proactive, and trustworthy. Whether wearing his bookkeeping, tax, forensic accounting, or social media hat, his focus consistently remains on adding value for our clients. He is inspired by the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of clients. His passion for helping small business owners make sense of their numbers and remove any stress and anxiety related to their financials and taxes is second only to the love for his family.

Dave’s wife, Laura, son Lincoln, and daughter Luna are his motivation every day to grow, learn, and love what he does. They live in Skippack, PA and can often be found hiking on another new trail in the area or walking into town for a bite to eat.

ENGAGE Real Solutions Built Around Your Life.

ENGAGE CPAs was founded in Collegeville, Pennsylvania 2013 with the goal of breaking away from the traditional concept of accounting.  We had a vision for how things could be done differently.  With a subscription model, rather than hourly billing, accountants at ENGAGE focus on providing comprehensive, quality financial support and not on billable hours. Our group eventually expanded, adding a satellite office in downtown Philadelphia.

It’s about more than filing tax returns. Our individual clients get clear advice from someone they trust. We provide the information they need to plan for a successful financial future.

We also work with all types of small business entities and self-employed professionals and creatives to identify and meet their needs. This often means we wear many hats, operating as your tax accountant, CFO, bookkeeper, business consultant, and more.  We provide a flexible service that adapts and changes as your business grows and changes; all at consistent and transparent pricing.
