Geoff Dodds, FCPA, FCA

As a partner with Buckley Dodds CPA in Vancouver, which he co-founded in 1995, Geoff shares strategic insights with—and finds innovative solutions for—a wide variety of businesses and individuals. At both Buckley Dodds and Clarkson Gordon (EY), where he previously worked, Geoff became known for his deep understanding of the not-for-profit sector and governance matters, as well as for his skills as an auditor. His knowledge and abilities were celebrated in 2021 and 2022, when Geoff was named one of Business in Vancouver’s 500 Most Influential Business Leaders in BC.

Throughout his career, Geoff has played a vital role in the development of the designation. Appointed to the inaugural board of CPABC in 2015, he served in a variety of key positions, including as audit committee chair, board treasurer, and board chair. As a testament to his reputation for strategic thinking and consensus building, Geoff was recently asked to chair the CPA Canadian Council of Chairs Subcommittee, advancing the review of the national Collaboration Accord for the Canadian profession. 

Highly active in the community as well, Geoff has volunteered with numerous not-for-profits throughout his career and currently serves as a director and treasurer of the Disability Foundation. 

“Geoff was tireless in volunteering his time to advance our discussions. He routinely sought to bridge differences in views by exploring the possibilities for common ground. The long-term best interests of our profession served as his guiding light.”
