Rachel Connor, CPA

Advisory Consultant & Audit Partner

I have more than a decade of experience helping business owners and private equity fund managers navigate complex accounting standards and sell or purchase businesses with confidence and control. I am a CPA with extensive public accounting experience, and I have in-depth knowledge of financial due diligence best practices to maximize value and limit risks. This combination of expertise affords me the opportunity to advise my clients during buy-side or sell-side transactions. I have worked with a diverse group of businesses for a variety of industries including real estate, construction, hospitality, technology, franchisees/franchisors, non-profits, manufacturing, logistics, professional services companies, and family offices. I specialize in helping small and middle market companies, including private equity-owned businesses.

As a Principal at Hancock Advisors, I enjoy advising my clients to meet their long-term goals while working closely with them daily to navigate through challenging obstacles. Prior to joining Hancock Advisors, I worked at  PricewaterhouseCoopers in audit services focusing on private equity funds, hedge funds, and mutual funds.
