Meet Our Team
Anthony Wych, CEO
Welcome to the office of A Wych Tax & Accounting LLC, dba Shaw & Associates. My name is Anthony Wych, CEO. I am a seasoned tax preparer with over 20 years of experience. I have worked exclusively in public accounting and have found my niche. I have had the privilege of owning this firm, formerly Shaw and Associates, since 2022. I am excited to continue to build upon our established relationships while developing new ones and grow the company over the next few years. In 2001, my family and I moved here from Iowa. We raised our three boys in Fort Collins, and we love all that Colorado has to offer.
