Beth Sabbagh | PARTNER
BETH SABBAGH began her professional career in the Los Angeles office of international accounting firm Ernst & Whinney. As a senior auditor she was involved in the planning and execution of fieldwork for a variety of corporate audits, including several large publicly traded companies. While this experience was invaluable for her professional development, Beth knew that auditing large corporate clients was not her preferred career choice. She then accepted a position with a small local firm specializing in tax and entertainment business management. There, Beth worked as a Senior Accountant preparing tax returns, compilations and projects for a wide variety of clients, including entertainers, professionals, investment partnerships and other businesses She soon realized that she wanted to focus primarily on business management. As an accountant with creativity (writing, drawing and painting), Beth found working in the entertainment industry satisfied both her love of the arts, as well as her logical and practical accounting side. She then joined another Los Angeles business management firm, where she became the primary accountant working on many of the firm’s largest clients and handled royalty, tour and film/production accounting, as well as tax planning and special projects. In 1996 Beth had the opportunity to join a business management firm in Seattle as a Senior Manager. After many years in Los Angeles, she decided to make the leap and relocate to the Pacific Northwest, which boasted a small but thriving music and film community. There Beth developed her own clientele, and eventually became a partner in the firm. She had clients ranging from legendary musicians and actors to small bands and independent film producers, many located outside the Seattle area. Ultimately after 10 years, Beth found she missed being in the heart of the entertainment industry (and the sun). so she decided to move back to Los Angeles where she joined David Weise and Associates in July 2006. Beth is excited to have the opportunity to work in a thriving organization with enthusiastic and talented people. The firms philosophy of working closely with the clients and their professional advisers, and providing thorough, accurate and timely information, mirrors her own high standards The firm is a nice blend of youthful energy and the highest level of experience and professionalism, and Beth is proud to be a part of it. In December 2008, Beth became a Partner at DWA. DWA merged with NKSFB, LLC in 2019.
