Owen and Haley from Adams Green

A Core Part Of Your Team

Adams Green are not your typical accountants. More than simply guardians of your credits and debits, we transcend basic bookkeeping to the role of trusted strategic advisors to small businesses, startups and non-profits.

We leave traditional accounting functions such as audits, reviews and tax preparation to other firms so we can focus on what we love: providing expertise, straightforward advice and deep experience to build scalable, sustainable organizations. Flexible, creative and proactive, we plan for the unexpected. While you’re busy with the day-to-day, we’re scanning the horizon for risks and opportunities. We scale our services to your needs, match your sense of urgency and tailor our services as you grow.

You get the benefit of a CFO without hiring one full-time. You’ll feel like you have an entire accounting department behind you. Because you do.

Adams Green Is Different

We’re a team of professional accountants. But we’re also a small business with the same challenges, love of family and hopes for our community as you. We work hard, have fun and try to do good in the world.

If you value these things, too, let’s chat. We’d love to be part of your team.

  • Owen Green

    Star Wars geek. Tragically Hip fan. Devoted dad.

    Owen has a knack for homing in on the unique needs of each client, then charting a customized path forward. A Mount Allison University alumnus, he got his CPA designation with a big accounting firm and worked for two of New Brunswick's largest employers before co-founding Adams Green with Haley. He loves helping clients have those ‘aha!’ moments, where they see the forest and the trees.

    World traveler. Forest explorer. Dedicated cat cuddler.

    Ashley is the go-to pro for your daily accounting needs. She loves nothing more than taking away the stress of staying on top of your books so you can focus on what you do best. With a BBA from UNB and a diploma in accounting and payroll from Eastern College, she’s got the chops. Plus, she is really, really nice.

Our Mission

Adams Green knows success is about more than money. We are proud to have been the first accountants in Canada to be a B Corporation. That means we value people and the planet as much as profit. Accounting isn’t just numbers to us. It’s a way to help our community, and the people and organizations in it, succeed.

We wanted to find a new way for accounting needs to be met. To have meaningful relationships with our clients. So, we partner with small businesses and non-profits that align with our values. You’ll love working with us as much as we love changing the world, one organization at a time.
