About Me

Preston Pingry
Managing Consultant

Bio Picture.jpg

I have been a professional consultant since 1999 specializing in the implementation of financial systems across numerous industries and countries.  I earned my degree in Accounting from the University of Arizona and immediately began my career in Accounting/Finance.  In  1998 I was put on our internal team to implement a new financial system upon our acquisition by a larger company.  I quickly realized that I had a passion for this type of work and switched career paths.  On this new path I worked for a large consulting firm,  boutique consulting firms, and as VP of Implementations for a startup company.   All of these stops made me realize that I wanted to start my own company, so I created Launch Consulting in 2007.   I have had the privilege with Launch Consulting to work with some incredibly smart clients over my career in a number of industries, as well as in a number of countries.  I look forward to many more of these projects and continuing to learn and gain valuable experience that I can share.
