Our story - From “aha” moment to accounting business

At CTC Accounting, we work with numbers.

On the surface, this may not seem like the most creative of pursuits.

But creativity is what brought us into the world.

Caroline Thevenot, Founder & CEO of CTC Accounting, has worked with companies of all sizes for over 20 years. She has lent her expertise to companies as an accountant, cost controller, finance manager, and CFO.

Over the years, Caroline noticed a gap in the market. With the rise of start-ups in the UAE, there was a clear lack of affordable and reliable financial talent.

This could deeply impact a growing company’s development.

So Caroline put her entrepreneurial mindset in action, and offered her services to a company looking for admin support. She could see that they also needed financial support. She said, “What about hiring me part-time so you can enjoy the services of a Finance Manager without the full cost?”.

They were sold.

This creative solution brought CTC Accounting to life.

And we have been serving small and medium businesses ever since.
