Anne's bio:

In 2016 Anne Gannon founded The Largo Group, a firm specializing in over-delivering for entrepreneurs and business owners. Anne believes unprecedented growth is due to believing in providing a team of experts to their clients at an affordable and flat-fee rate so that their clients have the peace of mind of knowing the Largo Group is only a phone call away. In the early days of the pandemic, Anne pivoted The Largo Group to provide hands on support for the hospitality industry that was in a free fall. Anne and her team provide free offerings to major corporations as well as individuals, which included weekly check-in sessions to provide updates on everything from cash flow to government assistance. Anne has remained committed to providing free education and assistance for many business owners as their business is their largest financial asset. In 2004 Anne became a pro golfer but quickly realized listening to CNBC and reading the Wall Street Journal that her true love was economics and business. As the daughter of a life-long entrepreneur, Anne knew her dream was to make a difference in the accounting world. Not the golf course.
