The evolution of Plumb (The Accounting Group) dates back over two decades ago. In 1996, Robert Scherer founded Plumb with a primary focus on providing fractional Controller-level accounting services to small and medium-sized businesses in San Diego.
In 2003, Scherer hired Anneke Stender as the firm’s Corporate Controller. She began working with business owners who were selling their business or retiring and discovered they no longer had their corporate accountant to help with day-to-day financial tasks. This sparked the revelation to form Plumb Family CFO, a back-office personal accounting service for families and individuals with a complex financial life.
The bill pay services offered by Plumb Family CFO caught the attention of one of the Nation’s largest family offices and was developed as a new division. Plumb Bill Pay is a preferred outsourced bill pay vendor for multiple financial institutions and family offices. The robust service offering includes bill payment, expense tracking, account reconciliations, wire transfers, cash flow reporting and more. It is customizable for every client, depending on the need and complexity of their personal financial life.
