Meet Financial Fitness Trainer: Steve Piascik 

When it comes to financial fitness, Steve Piascik has a lot of fans. His 15 years of experience as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA)allowed him to start his own winning team, PIASCIK of Richmond, which specializes in unique tax and financial needs of professional athletes.

Steve's growing client roster includes top athletes from the Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers and Denver Nuggets. And he's among a small group of CPAs who carry the Registered Financial Advisor status with the NFL Players Association.

From the start of their careers, pro athletes are affected by the challenges of high income and high taxes. The average playing lifetime of pro ath­letes is less than five years, and Steve's team helps them make financial decisions today that will have the greatest impact on their future.

He tallies a high score for volunteer work, including speaking at industry events such as the Adidas SuperStar Camp, serving on the Board of Directors of the Medical Society of Virginia Foundation as well as active memberships with the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants (VSCPA), American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Greater Richmond Technology Council and Richmond World Affairs Council, among others.
