Who We Are

13 Consulting LLC provides traditional Certified Public Accountant (CPA) services, as well as consulting and advisory services to businesses and individuals. We were founded in January 2021 by Steve Frank, and are headquartered in Elverson, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

Steve is a 2006 summa cum laude graduate of York College of Pennsylvania, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Accounting with dual minors in Economics and Finance. Steve spent the first ~15 years of his career working as a consultant and manager for public accounting and advisory firms in South Central Pennsylvania. He is a CPA licensed in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and also holds an Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) credential from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

As a lot of us did, Steve spent most of 2020 working from home due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This left a lot of time to think about the future and consider the next phase. He finally put his money where his mouth was and thus, 13 Consulting LLC was born. Steve grew up a fan of the Miami Dolphins, mainly because of Dan Marino. He always wore the number 13 in baseball when given the opportunity, and still does today.

The number 13 is commonly considered the unluckiest number around. People fear something bad will happen on Friday the 13th. Hotels and other buildings often skip the number 13 and go straight to 14 when numbering floors. But there’s no need to share in this unnecessary triskaidekaphobia. Let 13 help you today, and together we’ll make our own luck!

Few things are more important to business owners and stakeholders than the value of their business. Understanding the business value allows owners and their advisors to make decisions that are informed, logical, and strategic. An objective business valuation prepared by a well-qualified, credentialed expert can often be the difference between gain or loss, and success or failure.
