Principal | Marchetti & Weaver, LLC
Ken Marchetti graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Accountancy degree from New Mexico State University in 1976 and started his career with Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Company in Midland, Texas. He worked in both the audit and tax departments of Peat Marwick and then relocated to Denver, Colorado in 1980. In Denver, Marchetti initially worked in the oil and gas industry, first for Hamilton Brothers Oil Company and then for Sundance Oil Company, ultimately serving as Sundance’s Vice President of Finance and Treasurer. To accommodate the financial needs of the primary shareholder of Sundance, it was liquidated in 1984. The domestic operations were spun out in a leveraged buy-out and the Canadian operations were sold to the Energy Department of the Province of Quebec in a $350 million transaction.
Following the liquidation of Sundance, Marchetti established a CPA firm in Denver, providing accounting and tax services primarily to the oil and gas, construction and homebuilding industries. The firm’s key client was a Denver homebuilder, Richland Homes. Richland built approximately 50 homes per year in the late 1980s and grew to 300 homes per year in 1993.
In early 1994, Marchetti joined Mr. Robertson’s firm in Eagle County. Since 1994, Marchetti has been the managing partner, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the firm, which handles the accounting, budgeting, and administration for metropolitan districts, property owners associations and golf courses.
Marchetti is a member of the American Institute and Colorado Society of CPAs, the Colorado Government Finance Officers Association, and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. He also serves on the boards of various business, civic and community organizations.
