CHARTED PROFESIONAL ACCOUNTANT- Quantum Financial and Accounting Services
Mike is a Chartered Professional Accountant, with over 40 years experience.
A graduate of both the University of Illinois (honors in Philosophy), and the University of Alberta (honors in Business), he began his accounting career as an articling student with the Auditor General of Alberta.
Upon completion of his articles, he joined Mowbrey, Stout Chartered Accountants as a staff accountant.
Having combined the academic training with the real world experience, he and his, to be, long time business partner Case Watson started Watson Aberant Chartered Accountants, a regional firm servicing the Edmonton and area business community.
Over 30 years, the firm grew to become a well regarded firm, with a diverse client base. The clients spanned all industries, and locations focused in northern Alberta, but reaching to all of Canada, and the western U.S.
During this time various other Chartered Accountants and accounting students joined the firm for periods of time to upgrade and complete their accounting training. Mike and Case are very proud to have been the launching pad that helped to send all of these individuals on the way to realize their career goals.
In 2010, Watson Aberant was sold to Grant Thornton LLP, the 5th largest Chartered Accountant firm in Canada. Mike retired in 2013, and Case two years later.
Mike Aberant continues to provide finance, accounting and business services to selected clients through Quantum Financial and Accounting Services. He was recently recognized by the Institute for 40 years of continuous service to the business community as a Chartered Professional Accountant.
