“At BBBS, Inc., our goal is to free San Diego companies to ‘focus on their core business’ by providing high quality, full service outsourced accounting. We can do this at a substantially lower cost than an in-house staff or a consortium of other third party providers—making it an affordable and practical solution.”

Leah M. Thiss- Chief Executive Officer/President
As Chief Executive Officer for BBBS, Inc., Leah M. Thiss is responsible for engineering the strategic growth plan and market position of the accounting service company, as well as new business development, marketing, human resources, information integration, facilities management, and the company’s corporate accounting functions.
In 1992, Leah established The Byte Bender, an outsourced computer technical support and systems training company, serving San Diego area businesses including the City of Del Mar, MicroAge Corporation, AT&T, Trade Services and Compton’s New Media. One of the company’s key service offerings was accounting system conversion services. The success in this area eventually led to the formation of BBBS, Inc.
Working with companies on their accounting system conversions, Leah recognized the need for small and medium-sized businesses to have a cost-effective, single source accounting solution. She structured BBBS and its offerings around this need.
Leah ensures that BBBS is staffed to manage the planning, processing, record keeping and financial reporting needed by its clients. This includes building an appropriate and secure accounting department infrastructure to protect client revenues, assembling a “pod” of professionals with the optimal mix of skill and expertise to meet a client’s specific needs, and using the latest technology to stay connected with the client and to provide real-time transparent accounting support.
Leah believes that the strength of BBBS’ entire management team stems from combined expertise in management, accounting and technical areas. Under her leadership, the team has proven its ability to meet the demands of a fast-moving marketplace, stay current with ever-changing technology, and quickly respond to challenges with innovative solutions.
