Kirk Stovesand Santa Barbara Business Tax Accountant

While still in college, Kirk Stovesand started working for the company which grew into Walpole & Co., LLP. That combination of work and study continued once he joined the company as a full-time employee and later, a partner. His solid knowledge and innovative insight are sought after by clients and colleagues alike.

Among his accomplishments, Kirk earned a BA in Business Economics from UCSB, a Master in Taxation from Golden Gate University and a Master Certificate in Global Business Management from George Washington University. Kirk is a Certified Public Accountant, a Certified Financial Planner and a Personal Financial Specialist.

Kirk’s interest in financial planning as well as financial issues his clients were facing was a main driver in the creation of Walpole Financial Advisors, LLC (see Our Story). He helps clients explore their financial options and focuses his time on clients’ major concerns in the areas of wealth enhancement, wealth protection, wealth transfer, and charitable giving. In addition to his involvement with this company, Kirk is a Board Member for a local bank.

Kirk and his wife, Donna, live in Santa Barbara with their two sons, Marlin and Spencer, where they enjoy the laid back atmosphere. Kirk enjoys spending time with family and traveling.
