Mike Savage, a New Canaan, CT resident, has enjoyed great business success in life. As the founder and CEO of a multi-million dollar virtual accounting firm, Savage knows how to get the best out of a team. Savage recognized early on in his career that small businesses could benefit from the same big four level of service when it came to their accounting practices. It was in that spirit that he created 1–800 Accountants. The business model was a clear focus on eliminating complicated bookkeeping and tax preparation stress for small business owners. In doing so, 1–800 Accountant stands today as one of the largest, small business accounting firms in the nation with over 200,000 businesses as clients. Now, he’s turning his attention to philanthropy. For years New Canaan’s Michael Savage and his wife Sandra have been helping Honduran children and families suffering in poverty by donating clothes, bedding, books and other necessities to families in need of help and a kind heart. To that end, Savage has formed a foundation to raise awareness about the need to feed and clothe children in Honduras. His non-profit organization is called the Savage Rivera Foundation.
