About Our President and Founder
||HOWIE KUTCHER received his bachelor's degree in accounting from Baruch College (CUNY) in 1981 and passed the CPA examination shortly afterwards. He started his career by working as an auditor with two small/medium-size CPA firms. Realizing that he would rather work in the tax field, he joined the tax department of Main Hurdman in 1983 and worked there until 1987, when the firm merged into Peat Marwick Mitchell and Co. Following KPMG Peat Marwick, he left to join the corporate tax department of Sterling Drug, Inc. (a Fortune 500 Corporation). When that corporation was acquired by Eastman Kodak in 1988, he entered the tax placement field with the intention of capitalizing on the fact that unlike most recruiters, he understands the complexities of taxation.
In 1988, he was awarded a master's degree in taxation from Pace University, which he earned at night while working full-time at the above firms. From 1988 through 1990, Howie worked at two large personnel agencies heading up the corporate tax division. He left in 1990 to form his own firm - Tax Network Resources, Inc. (the name was later changed to the present one). In 1996, he relocated his company from Manhattan to the suburbs.
In addition to owning his own employment agency, Howie successfully meets the stringent and annual requirements for CPE credits set by the New York State Education Department Licensing Division. This allows him to maintain a small accounting and tax practice.
Howie proudly hails from Brooklyn, NY. He currently resides with his wife and children in Westchester County. His hobbies include sports, traveling, and music (he's an accomplished pianist). He's active in community affairs, as well as the following professional organizations:
- New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJSCPA)
- Connecticut Society of Certified Public Accountants (CSCPA)
- Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA)
- Baruch College Alumni Association

- KPMG Alumni Association
- Rotary Club of Briarcliff Manor, New York

Howie has spoken at several career seminars and has written numerous articles in "The CPA Journal". He has also contributed articles in various other professional publications and web-sites and is available for speaking and writing engagements.
