Albert began his career as an internal auditor after he graduated from Loyola Marymount University with degrees in Finance and Accounting. With a goal of becoming a CFO, he obtained his MBA from the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California, where he concentrated in Finance and Strategy. He has held Controllership/CFO positions with several national companies but redirected his career to consulting so he could use his experience to help more companies through their business challenges.
Albert’s consulting career has been ongoing since 2006. Through a combination of working for boutique consulting firms and freelancing, Albert has helped clients ranging from pre-revenue startups all the way to Fortune 500 companies. His client roster includes: Children’s Hospital LA, Snapchat, LoanDepot, Panasonic, Sambazon, The New Home Company and The Capital Group. In August 2017, he decided to launch Cleverkey Consulting Group, Inc., a firm that is focused on providing impactful solutions to clients as well as meaningful employment to consultants.
Aside from his Cleverkey endeavor, Albert also runs a residential real estate firm helping friends and family in their real estate transactions throughout Southern California. In addition, he spends his time volunteering for USC, LMU and the Orange County REALTORS Association’s Ethics Committee, where he serves as its chairman. He is a native of Orange County, where he currently resides.
Diana is highly specialized in working for rapidly growing start-up companies in the Los Angeles area. She assisted in setting up early infrastructure, specifically within Human Resources, Finance, and Payroll, and thrived in the demanding early stages of several hyper growth companies.
Diana started her career at SpaceX in Los Angeles, engaging heavily in developing and analyzing Payroll and Equity. Eventually, her career led her to Snap, Inc (formerly known as Snapchat) where she was the first Finance employee hired into the business and assisted in the IPO process. At each of these companies, she assisted in developing the infrastructure needed to handle hyper growth within Payroll, Equity, Human Resources, and Finance. After working at these companies, with her accumulated skills and knowledge, Diana was approached by Albert to join Cleverkey Consulting Group to assist and develop the company in an internal role while managing the operational needs of the company.
Originally from the midwest, Diana grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, Il. and received her BS from University of Illinois – Urbana Champaign before moving to Los Angeles for work. She is currently an MBA candidate at Booth Business School with the University of Chicago. In addition, Diana volunteers with the elderly community in Los Angeles, and partakes in volunteering events with local stroke survivor support groups. In her free time, she likes to scuba dive and be outdoors.
