About Seigneuret & Company
Lynda Seigneuret was born and educated in Vancouver. She started her career in the Small Business Department at Peat Marwick, Chartered Accountants (now KPMG), providing accounting and tax services to small business clients. She obtained her C.G.A. designation in 1983. In the mid-80’s Lynda was the controller of an engineering consulting firm with international operations. In 1987 she left that firm to become a management consultant with the Peat Marwick Consulting Group. In this capacity she worked on a variety of assignments including preparing business plans and assessment reports for companies going public on the Vancouver Stock Exchange, developing training seminars and preparing financial forecasts for start-up businesses.
The firm was originally established in 1989 as Seigneuret and Associates and later acquired the accounting practice of Healey Andrews & Co. The firm then changed its name to Healey Seigneuret & Co and later to J.A. Seigneuret Ltd. After the sudden passing of Jacques Seigneuret in January 1998, a new partnership was formed between Lynda Seigneuret and William Cheng under the name Seigneuret & Cheng. After William Cheng passed away in June 2004, the company changed its name to Seigneuret & Company.
