Maria Pearman

CPA, CGMA | Principal

Expert in:

Client Accounting Services, Consulting, Food & Beverage

Activator. Strategist. Leader. An astonishing achiever who transforms passion into action.

A sought-after brewery industry finance and accounting expert, Maria grew up in South Carolina. Before she became a CPA, far-flung interests took her to the College of Charleston, where she earned an Arts Management degree and launched her first career in the radio and music industry.

Honoring a lifelong love of business, Maria then earned a post-baccalaureate in Accounting from Linfield College shortly after moving to Oregon. Over a decade, she worked as a tax accountant, founded a successful accounting business that served the alcoholic beverage industry, spoke at countless brewery conferences, and authored Small Brewery Finance.

We couldn’t be happier to have this dynamo at Perkins & Co. Here, you’ll find her digging deep to help clients solve problems and build better businesses—that is, when she’s not teaching classes, taking in a concert, or traveling the world. There’s little Maria hasn’t done, and undoubtedly far more she has yet to do.
