Carlos was born and raised in Lima, Peru. By belonging to a family of accountants, his exposure to the accounting profession started early by performing physical inventories during his school breaks in the summer. After graduating from high school, Carlos tried to break the family cycle and was accepted into the Arts Program at the Catholic University in Lima. After two years, Carlos decided to follow his genetic calling and transferred to the Universidad San Martin de Porres’ to focus on accounting. After his first semester, Carlos began his auditing career by joining the CPA firm Pizarro, Coloma & Asociados. As a Staff Auditor and later Audit Manager, he worked on financial and operational audits of governmental agencies on behalf of the country’s Comptroller General.
Carlos A. Davis joined Harrington Group in 1999 from JLV Home Health Care Agencies, a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles, where he worked as an Accounting Manager. At JLV Carlos embraced the passion of working in the nonprofit sector and it is where he first encountered the need for individuals to receive services and closely witnessed the outstanding work that nonprofit organizations perform in order to fulfill those needs.
At Harrington Group, Carlos works closely with many of the firm’s government-funded nonprofits. His client areas include residential programs, foster family agencies, mental health service providers, non-public schools, vocational training agencies, child care agencies and legal services corporations. Fluent in English and Spanish, he especially enjoys interacting personally with people at all levels within his clients’ operations, and building relationships that extend far beyond the engagement at hand.
Since arriving in Los Angeles many years ago, Carlos has always been a big Lakers fan. Lakers paraphernalia is always guaranteed to be displayed by him during the season. Carlos’ additional passions include attending soccer matches and Formula 1 racing events. Carlos’ perfect vacation is traveling to coastal cities with his wife, daughter, and son while relaxing on the sand “doing nothing” as a way to break from his daily routine.
Carlos is a member of the California Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
