Suzy Greenwood

The Tempe Chamber would like to spotlight the most recent Ambassador of the Month, Suzy Greenwood. 

TCC: Suzy, what type of business services or products do you provide?

Suzy: Arizona Tax Advisors is a locally owned and operated accounting firm specializing in Small Business and Individual accounting, tax and bookkeeping services. We truly care about the success of our clients and work diligently to minimize their tax liability and maximize their financial insight.  We started this firm with the needs of our clients in mind.  It was never just “about the numbers”, but about how we can help each client, through services and education, achieve their dreams of financial success.

TCC: What are some exciting things happening in your business?

Suzy: The Tempe and surrounding communities have been very receptive! We are incredibly thankful for our continued growth. Part of the growth process is meeting other professionals with whom we partner to provide services to our small business owners. We’ve met many through the Tempe Chamber. This year, we have workshops coming where we can offer great answers to the challenges of starting and growing a business. We are looking forward to an exciting year with the Tempe Chamber as well. I am very blessed to be the Incoming Chair of the Women in Business Council and am joining the Board of Directors for the Chamber. We want to give back to the community that blesses us so richly.

TCC: What is your background and how did you come to be in this business?

Suzy: I have over 30 years of business and management experience. My career has been focused on customer service including conflict resolution, creative problem-solving, training, daily operations, and financial management.  I have always enjoyed learning, and in this industry, the ever-changing laws make that a constant. Researching the changes and then sharing them through presentations is my favorite part of the business!

TCC: What are your special interests?

I have two wonderful children, three fur grandbabies, and a talented husband in the music business. (He is an amazing musician!)  My first love is spending time with them! I also love to write…stories, articles, poetry. I am continually giving my husband song lyrics. I am also an avid reader. Words are such a gift! Whether reading them, writing them, or speaking them (as in presentations), I never take them for granted! My goal is to become a Master Presenter and published author.
