Staff Accountant I

When asked to explain why accounting isn’t boring, Zach Stanley was quick to answer. “Because we get to work with numbers every day!”


Wait, you’re not sold yet? That’s okay — that’s why you hire people like Stanley, who joined Eder, Casella & Co. as a Staff Accountant in June 2018. The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater graduate and U.S. Army veteran, who also has experience in IT infrastructure networking and security, embraces the challenges inherent in the accounting field.


“I’ve always loved numbers, math, money management and Microsoft Excel,” he admits. “I wanted to be knowledgeable about finances after graduating high school in 2009 and directly experiencing the effects of the 2008 financial crisis and recession. Accounting fit my passions and desires, so I pursued it.”


Now, the married father of one has a simple aim. “Making the most of every day,” he says. “I strive to learn something new, provide a good life for my family, and to be better today than I was yesterday.”

3. When I’m not at work, I enjoy … “Spending time with family, hitting the gym, reading, and playing video games.”

4. My favorite musical acts are … “Zac Brown Band, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley — I really enjoy country music. However, while working or studying, I usually listen to classical or jazz.”
