Quentin is a big man with a big heart.  He has a soft spot for entrepreneurs, and he loves it when his clients remark ‘you aren’t a typical accountant’.  He is relentlessly focused on helping his clients achieve their goals.  When he is not in the office (which is rare), you can find him spending time with his kids, playing golf (poorly he says), or traveling to see Dave Matthews Band.  Quentin has over 20 years experience in public practice with the hairline to prove it.  He has honed is ability to keep an eye on the forest and not the weeds, and keeps his clients’ best interests in mind in everything he does.  Pro Tip:  If you’re looking to get on his good side, his weaknesses are scotch and cigars.

Gladilyn Alpino-MacoyStaff Accountant

Having worked in the food and service industry for over 18 years, Gladilyn is excited to join HGA, embracing it as her first accounting job, and she will finally be achieving her way to get a CPA designation. She earned her Bachelor of Commerce with an Accounting major from MacEwan University, but beforehand, she had also attained a Finance and Management Accounting degree in the Philippines. However, she did not get to practice her studies years back as most of her experience was taken on various management roles in the quick-service restaurant sector. Nevertheless, accounting ultimately found its way again, thus she decided to return to school for the second time. With this goal in mind, she is much eager to embrace this transition!

At the end of the day, Gladilyn looks forward to spending valuable time with her family. But if she indeed finds herself some “Me” time, she will most likely binge-watch movies on Netflix, sing karaoke, or eat ice cream or any dessert for that matter!
