Ken Cornutt founded Westside Financial as a response to the growing need for financial services in Southern California’s expanding economic landscape. A Certified Public Accountant since 2008, and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, he is a member of the Financial Planning Association, and the AICPA.

As a Seattle native, he started his career working for a Big 4 firm where he was assigned to a broad range of clientele that included everything from Venture Capital to Fortune 100 companies. He then transitioned to Los Angeles where he assisted a growing startup’s initial push towards IPO. After working in corporate finance and tax departments for a number of years, including time spent as CFO, he started Westside Financial.

Ken believes the success of Westside Financial is completely embedded in the success of his clients. This creates a deep interest in building long-term relationships and a true desire to participate in the success of others.

He currently resides in beautiful Brentwood, California.
