Paul Burkard

Chief Financial Officer, Senior Vice President, Finance & Contracts

While the list of Paul’s day-to-day responsibilities runs the gamut, he ultimately ensures the financial health, long-term viability, and continual growth of Aveshka. Bringing agile processes to scaling finance, accounting and IT operations, Paul regards the most complex financial issues as challenges that compel him to do his best work. Thankfully, his role as the lead for Aveshka’s financial and contractual activities ensures he is never without a challenge. Paul works with the philosophy that while the numbers are the numbers, it’s beneficial, even imperative, for everyone involved to understand the how and why behind them.  As a trusted advisor, his long-standing integrity and thoroughness enable clients – both internal and external – to feel 100% confident in his assessments and guidance.

As a certified public accountant (CPA) with over 37 years’ experience, predominantly with entrepreneurial government contracting technology firms, Paul offers a comprehensive perspective on the full financial lifecycle of a firm, from start-up operations to the execution of a sale. Prior to joining Aveshka, Paul was a finance and accounting executive for two privately held, high-growth, government contractors.

Paul lives in Hamilton, VA and enjoys spending his precious spare time with family at the beach, in the mountains, and on the golf course.
