Accountants On Purpose

Dec 2, 2019

Spencer Sheinin has a unique background with over 15 years as an entrepreneur combined with extensive financial experience as a CPA, CA and investment banker. He is the Founder and CEO of Shift Financial Insights, providing ridiculously simple accounting and financial insights for business on the rise.


Spencer has previously owned businesses in manufacturing, construction, cold storage and Real Estate. He has been recognised as winner of the Business in Vancouver’s Top 40 Under 40 awards and finalist for the Surrey Business Excellence Awards. Spencer is an instructor for the Chartered Professional Accountants of B.C. and guest speaker at the University of British Columbia. He is a hyperactive member (since 2005) of the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) and is the current Finance Expert for Canada and Past President of EO Vancouver.


Spencer is passionate about endurance sport and has completed several marathons, several more ultra-marathons (as far as 162 km), Iron man, distance cycling events, and most recently he completed his first marathon distance swim. Not surprisingly, both endurance sports and building a business require a ton of blood, sweat and tears.
