Ken Craig Board Member

Ken started his own CPA practice in Southern California after receiving his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and several years of experience in auditing and accounting. With the advent of greater efficiencies in communication technologies, he discovered that if he made it convenient enough, clients would retain his services regardless of his address, so he moved his family and his business to Hawaii, then Lake Tahoe and finally to scenic southern Utah. After 46 years of auditing financial institutions, preparing tax returns, starting small business enterprises, and concurrently serving in various ecclesiastic and civic positions, and while maintaining a modest tax practice, Ken is pleased to join in making Sensor Industries the world leader in multi-family sensor technology.
