Rusty Best is one of our resident staff accountants. In this role, what he finds most rewarding is gaining a clear understanding of what drives a business to grow and prosper. Rusty’s enthusiasm for supporting our client roster and scope of projects stems from his 15+ years of dual experience in both operations management and accounting roles, experiences that have helped him gain a deep understanding and keen interest in the intricacies of business finance.
Rusty comes to SVFG having also previously assisted in balancing the books for community leaders, nonprofit organizations, local judges and business owners in both the Bay Area and in his former home state of Florida. He has also helped many of them by leading fundraising efforts and in assisting with financial reporting.
Rusty earned his Bachelors’ of Business in Corporate Finance at San Francisco State University. His passion for numbers and finance carries over into his personal life – in his downtime he mostly enjoys reading company biographies, investment commentary and stock market analysis. When he’s not following domestic financial markets, you can find Rusty talking about global travel – he loves hearing about other people’s travels and their experiences abroad. When travel is possible, “weekend warrior” getaways to small Northern California towns are preferred – with an adventurous spirit and a good book.
