AAFA Announces the Addition of AP Professionals of Rochester, NY to our Affiliate Network.
The American Association of Finance and Accounting, or AAFA, is proud to announce the appointment of AP Professionals of Rochester as the newest affiliate of the AAFA network serving the greater Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo, New York areas.
AP Professionals, or AP, was founded in Buffalo, NY in 1993. Designed to provide full-service accounting and finance recruitment services with a high touch approach for smaller markets, the company opened its second office location in Rochester, NY in 1996. Founded by Mark Pautler, Managing Partner and led by Matt Taylor, AP employs 17 recruitment professionals dedicated to helping accounting, finance, engineering, operations, HR, and administrative support hire and identify sound career opportunities.
Founder, Mark Pautler brings with him to AAFA’s affiliate network over 30 years of accounting and finance recruitment experience. After launching his career selling payroll services for ADP, Mark made the move in 1987 opening the Accountemps office in Rochester, NY and then after 8 years opened the 2nd AP office in 1996. AP Professionals President, Matt Taylor joins AAFA with 12 years of public and private accounting experience and 11 years of recruitment experience. After graduating from St Bonaventure in 1995, Matt earned his CPA license and became an auditor for a public accounting firm, then evolved from an external reporting analyst at a publicly traded company, to a Controllership role at a local manufacturing and distribution company. Matt joined AP Professionals in 2007 as a Director and in 2017 was promoted to President. Today Matt oversees the Rochester and Syracuse offices with Mark.
As a member of AAFA, AP Professionals looks forward to learning from the network of affiliates who have already gone through big growth adjustments. They also hope to give back to smaller organizations and share their tactics for their unique high-touch method.

The company is one of the largest specialized staffing firms in the Western New York area focusing on the disciplines of Accounting, Finance, Human Resources, Administrative, Operations and Engineers backgrounds both on a permanent and contract basis. AP Professionals’ experience specific to the recruitment of accounting and finance executives presents a unique and welcome addition to our affiliation’s long-standing reputation for excellence within the accounting and finance recruitment industry.”
