Keith Carter, CPA / CGMA, began his career in 1994 with a public accounting firm (currently CLA) before he become the Chief Accounting Officer of a private and non-profit conglomerate of long-term healthcare companies that raised $500 million in equity and convention debt / tax-exempt bond debt. Keith later transitioned back to Kemper CPA Group LLP (a CPA firm ranked in Accounting Today’s Top 100) where he was a partner for 18 years.
