Originally from Hyderabad, India, Prasad Rao Pandyar Guru received a Masters in Business Administration with specialization in International & Corporate Finance Management from the National Institute of Management. The gap in between the demand and supply of CAs makes this degree invaluable. The course involves a three-year training known as an articleship, in which students are given the chance to work under some of the best professionals in the industry. Guru Pandyar performed his articleship with MGRK Associates, a Hyderabad-based company, where he led and assisted teams on statutory and internal audit engagements to review and consolidate financial statements in compliance with Indian corporate and tax laws and Indian GAAP before taking a position as an accountant with Prithvi, an India-based company. As he grew with the company, Guru Pandyar was moved to the United States and became responsible for the company’s North and South American operation. After 14 years with Prithvi, Guru Pandyar became an independent finance, accounting, and operations consultant.

Guru Pandyar loves the measurability and straightforwardness of the accounting discipline. It is based on measurable data, and the results cannot be interpreted in different ways: numbers speak for themselves. Accounting is known as the language of business, and it benefits management in a variety of ways, guiding companies towards consistent growth and profit. Guru Pandyar likes to provide concrete, sound advice to leadership in order to ground companies from grand and unrealistic aspirations. Accounting information is objective, unbiased, reliable, and when done correctly, accurate.

Guru Pandyar enjoys the freedom and self-reliance of independent consultancy. He is able to leverage his expertise in AP, AR, payroll, billing, financial planning, internal reporting, cash flow projections, and long-range forecasting in order to help companies grow and reach long-term business objectives. He also appreciates the variety of consultancy work: in this role, he is constantly meeting new people and learning new things from companies and individuals, which has proven to be both personally and professionally rewarding.
