Simon Bahramjian entered the world of accounting in 1975 and has had an interesting journey to say the least. In 1974, Simon was selected to play on the youth national basketball team in Iran. He was blessed with the opportunity to travel to several countries including the Philippines where he participated in the 1974 Youth Asian Games.
In 1975, Simon officially began his accounting career with Unipac in Tehran. Following his tenure with Unipac, Simon was hired as the chief accountant at the Perrier bottling company (operating as “Damavand”) in Tehran. Upon settling in Los Angeles, Simon was hired as the auditor for Beverly Hills Transit Cooperative Inc. and worked with the company from 1987-2000. In 1988, he established “Simon’s Tax Services” working as an income tax preparer and bookkeeper here in Southern California. Finally in 2008, Simon’s Tax Services merged with Archetype Financial Group and is currently operated by Simon and his two sons; Alen and Mario. Using the knowledge he gained while working at Unipac and Perrier, Simon quickly built a steady clientele, majority of which are still clients of ours today.
