About Badgley and Badgley, PC

Peronalized accounting solutions for Western North Carolina & Eastern Tennessee

Paul Badgley

NC CPA License #17388
Paul graduated Magna Cum Laude from Western Carolina University in May 1985 with a BSBA in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting.  After working as a corporate accountant for a construction firm in Greensboro for two years, he started his career in public accounting in 1987 with a large national CPA firm in their Burnsville office.   He worked with that firm for almost 20 years when he decided he wanted to spend more time in Burnsville and wanted his family to stay in the community. In 2007, Paul purchased the practice to remain close to the community his family had grown to love.  Since 2007 Paul has grown a successful, client-focused firm with clients in Western North Carolina and East Tennessee.  The firm serves many individual clients but also a variety of small businesses and farms. With improved roads, Asheville is just a short drive from the office, and Paul or his staff regularly travel there and to other places to meet clients and facilitate meetings. The core values of Paul’s business are simple – act with integrity and put the client’s needs first.

We enjoy learning about our clients and their desired outcomes, then creating customized financial solutions that help them achieve their goals.
