Laurie Coldren, Co-CEO
My name is Laurie and I am the Co-CEO at CapForge. I received a B.S. from East Carolina University and began a career in education. Looking to expand into other fields, I joined CapForge in 2020 as part of the Client Services Department and found that I loved working with and educating clients. I expanded my role across HR, payroll, billing and admin and eventually moved up to the Executive Team in 2022.
I am originally from Virginia but have lived in San Diego with my husband since 2010.
Serra Gibbs, Co-CEO
My name is Serra Gibbs, and I am the Co-CEO here at CapForge. I have a bachelor’s degree in Accounting that I received from Cal State University San Marcos. While earning my degree, I spent a few years in management in the banking industry, and I haven’t looked back since making the switch to accounting. I started my career at CapForge in 2018 as a bookkeeper, learned the ins and outs of the company and its clientele, then moved my way up into the Executive Team in 2022.
I am originally from Southern California; however, my family and I relocated to Phoenix, Arizona which is where I now live with my husband and daughter.
Matt Remuzzi, Owner/Founder
My name is Matt Remuzzi and I started CapForge back in 2000 after being laid off from a venture backed firm as part of the dotcom bust happening at the time. I have a BA from UCSD and an MBA from SDSU. CapForge started out as a consulting business for small businesses and has never strayed far from those roots.
In 2012 bookkeeping became the focus, with more accounting services added in each year including tax prep, payroll, coaching and advisory services, due diligence, and business exits all becoming part of the services offered. I continue to work on growing the business while the team runs the day to day
operations and continues to ensure we’re always providing five star quality and service to our clients.
I was born in New York, grew up in LA and moved to San Diego for college and never left. My wife, son, daughter and two Labradors and I all now live in Carlsbad.
The strength of the company is the team here at CapForge. Everyone who works here is not only a highly qualified accounting specialist, but also a great person who treats each client’s business like it was their own. We strive to provide a great service at a great price in a timely manner so you can focus on your business.
We want to help you grow and improve your business every month and we do that by making sure you are getting the most accurate and most useful financial information available.
I am proud of the work we do and I am excited to be able to help as many clients as possible succeed and thrive in their small businesses. If you ever have a question, comment, complaint or praise, I’d love to hear it!
