Brian Stief, CPA, CA

President

The original Stief in Stief Group, I work with a team of talented individuals who have shown me the value of collaborating with a group. For us, synergy is key.

We have worked hard to be your go-to source for integration, including financial reporting, distribution, warehousing, and job shop solutions.

Where we excel is configuring.

We don’t just make Adagio run — we make it cook.

Donna Pukarowski

Office Manager

I have been at Stief Group since (almost) the start. I’m normally the first person you talk to when you call or visit the office, and I welcome the challenge of making the most of your first impression.

I manage our office, schedule our team resources, offer first contact support, do client billings and pay bills on behalf of our company.

I’m a jack of all trades, but you can call me Donna!

Bob Schwoeffermann

Senior Consultant

I am an Adagio consultant with more than 30 years’ experience in supporting both ACCPAC Plus and Adagio product lines. I’m also a graduate of University of California, Berkeley.

My previous company, Ledgerwood Associates, held the title of Dealer of the Year for Softline, ACCPAC, Timberline, and Softrak Systems in various years.  

I don’t take myself too seriously, and I like to make things work as advertised.

I joined Stief Group in 2012, after completing an Honours Bachelor of Commerce at Laurentian University. Within Adagio, I enjoy working with other team members to create and test integration solutions to maximize the software’s opportunities for client efficiencies.

Warren Karges

Warren Karges

Consultant / Analyst

I joined Stief Group five years ago after providing application and systems support in the health care industry. I bring extensive knowledge of business solutions and, as part of the team here, can provide integration from just about anything into Adagio.

We work with Crystal reports and various ODBC links to create import or macro solutions to automate conversions “on the fly.” Our end goal is to minimize your downtime on system migrations.

I specialize in creating value-added Gridview and Crystal reports to maximize the benefit of reporting your data, because better reporting means better decision making.

I love my job, but love a great joke even better!

Based on the west coast, I have 18+ years of MIS administrator experience working with a small manufacturing company in California. My specialty is creating complex Crystal or GridView Reports for the Adagio clients we service. I have also done a lot of work with the Lenmax Warehouse Management System and EDI Solutions. With my degree from Xavier University in Computer Science, I support many different environments including RDS, VPN, Local Networking, and cloud solutions.

Turning complex ideas into workable solutions is what I enjoy the most.
