Marc S. Sterling

Marc Sterling brings over 30 years of IRS and accounting experience to the firm. He founded Sterling Financial Services, LLC a little over nine years ago, when he and his family moved to Sedona.

Prior to establishing the firm, Marc established and grew another firm in Texas that he formed in 1986, that is still in existence today. In addition to his prior accounting firm in Texas, he spent three tax seasons with the Internal Revenue Service as well as working in the Oil and Gas Industry.

Marc’s vision for Sterling’s came from this experience where he discovered a need in the market to provide individuals and businesses with day-to-day financial consulting, and tax and bookkeeping services that were clear and understandable to enable them to better manage and maximize their hard earned dollars and operations.

Outside of the day-to-day accounting work, Marc serves as a public speaker at numerous events and has written for industry publications, including Skyward Magazine, Master Wealth, and for various Chambers of Commerce. Originally from Miami Beach, Florida, Marc earned his Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Accounting from The University of Texas at Austin in 1984. He enjoys playing tennis, hiking, boating and many other outdoor activities with his pride and joy, son Trevor.
