The Milestone Team September 8, 2021

Industry veteran brings wealth of start-up/scale-up experience and expands geographic reach

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (September 8, 2021) – Milestone Business Solutions, a rapidly growing Outsourced Accounting and HR services firm headquartered in Indianapolis, announces a definitive merger agreement with MSV Financial Services based in New York.   MSV Financial’s owner, Melissa Sanvictores, joins Milestone as Vice President of Business Development and will continue to focus on high growth start-up and scale-up companies as well as cultivating new relationships.   Sanvictores is an experienced financial professional who has spent the majority of her career in the New York market where she has successfully run her own business and worked with numerous start-up and high-growth companies over a 20 year period. 

Milestone has assembled a team of industry veterans and thought leaders to build a high-end fractional services firm that focuses on customized Accounting and HR solutions.  The demand for outsourced/fractional services has increased significantly in recent years, and Milestone is capitalizing on the natural synergy between Accounting and Human Resources.  With the acquisition of MSV Financial, Milestone not only expands its geographic footprint, but adds a seasoned financial professional with a proven track record of client success.

With any partnership, business owners look to ensure the principals share a passion for the work they do and a common vision for the future.  Milestone CEO and Co-Founder Tom Gabbert worked with Melissa prior to launching Milestone and knew what he was getting.  “Melissa is a rare talent.  She has exceptional technical skills combined with a unique ability to relate to people in a way that leads to great outcomes,” said Gabbert.  “Her positive energy is contagious and will help us build the kind of culture we want at Milestone.” 

For Sanvictores, the timing was perfect.  She was aggressively growing MSV and wanted to find the right partner to help her scale the business and get to the next level.  “Having worked with Tom and several of the Milestone team members, I knew they were building a winning team, and I wanted to be part of it,” Melissa noted.  “Milestone understands how to deliver an excellent client experience, and the combination of Accounting and HR will create a competitive advantage for growing companies,” she added.

Founded in June 2020, Milestone has grown to 27 team members in five states and has no plans to slow down.  “There is a real appetite for what we do,” Gabbert said.  “Entrepreneurs are embracing the fractional model and understand what a difference it makes to surround themselves with experienced professionals who know how to scale a company,” he added.  Milestone expects to continue to add team members and expand into new geographic markets in the coming months.
