Eric
Abati

CPA
Partner
Eric joined ATKG as a Senior Manager in 2010 and was admitted as a Partner shortly thereafter.

He has built an incredible CPA practice over the last 20+ years on the national, regional, and local levels and has experience in many industries, including real estate, construction, retail, restaurants, investment partnerships, and non-profits. He’s a great go-to guy when you have a technical or professional question but also makes a great Trivial Pursuit partner because of his ability to retain utterly useless facts along with all that important knowledge!

Eric is a proud graduate of The Florida State University and is hopeful the Seminoles can soon recover from the Jimbo Fisher era. Eric is even more hopeful that one of his children will decide to attend the prestigious establishment.

Eric believes in community, and his resources remain devoted to Riverside Community Church and San Antonio Christian School, where he and his family commit to involvement and belonging. He maintains membership in an early morning Gold’s Gym group for camaraderie and keeps the dreaded “dad bod” at bay.  Father humor, though, does remain a priority and, unfortunately for his wife and daughter, differs not that much from his teenage boys’ sense of humor.

When he’s not diligently attending to his inbox, client relationships, or the continued success of ATKG, Eric enjoys actively spending time outdoors with his amazing wife, Sarin, and their three wonderful children, Emma, Josh, and Sam. His desire for adventure and good old-fashioned fun is well suited to his role on ATKG’s Fun Infusion Committee. His bucket list includes learning to speak Spanish without eliciting laughs, having a dog that is well behaved enough to bring to the office every day, and learning how (mentally) to work remotely (picture an Airstream mobile office at the base of a ski slope or side of a lake)!
