Profile: Adrian GJ Hodgson, CPA, CA

I have had a wide breadth of positions before my career as a chartered accountant. This allows me to understand various industries and technologies from a wider viewpoint. Having lived and worked across Canada throughout my life, from Fredericton to Inuvik to Vancouver, I have developed connections and knowledge of the different cultures within our nation.

Graduating from the University of New Brunswick with double honours in Accounting and Finance and a concentration in Marketing I moved to Calgary in 2012. Passing the UFE in 2014, I continued my career with Paul Teoh Chartered Professional Accountants for 7 years, 7 months and 7 days.

Once my time at Paul’s had mutually ended, I created Frosty Squirrel Professional Corporation rather than be lost in the corporate world. Hoping to create a bigger impact on the world by educating and empowering clients to do bigger and better things.

Why the name Frosty Squirrel CPA?

Because Adrian Hodgson Professional Corporation is boring. Since Adrian wanted something unique, he looked towards his nickname of “Giant Squirrel”.
This nickname came about as he is 6’3″ and performs various feats of strength, including deadlifting 500 lbs. Along with his insatiable curiosity and habit of becoming distracted by shiny objects or becoming completely focused on a subject, he was called a squirrel at a young age.

The term “stay frosty” is used to indicate the need to stay alert and aware in dangerous situations. This is very relevant to our practice.

If we become complacent in the way we deal with issues, changes, or technologies we will simply fall behind becoming less effective. Eventually, this would lead to the downfall of any company.

Through these two aspects, the name Frosty Squirrel was born. This name has been received with overwhelmingly positive feedback, especially with international clients as they view it as uniquely Canadian.
