About Eagle Accounting Services

Trust. Consideration. And our full attention. It’s the kind of service you’d expect when working with family.

Eagle Accounting Services, Inc., was founded in 1996 by Karen Frye-Trentman. Since then, this family firm has provided tax preparation and accounting and business consulting services to over 1,400 individuals and businesses in Minnesota and Northern Wisconsin.

Our extensive experience serves a wide range of industries, and we work tirelessly to help our clients fully appreciate the financial side of their businesses.

Our goal with every client is to avoid surprises. This takes open communication in every interaction—from listing tax liabilities to settling our bill—and that’s why you work with a family business versus just another accounting firm.

Our Founder

Karen Frye-Trentman began her career as an accounting department manager for Maurices, a retail clothing chain that was, at the time, 300 stores strong. After helping the company realize significant growth, she was hand-picked by its owner, Joel Labovitz, to continue to work with him after he sold the Maurices chain. 

Over the next seven years, Karen worked closely with Mr. Labovitz, providing accounting services for the many entities he purchased and launched, including hotels, office buildings, malls, and other developments and real estate endeavors.

Karen purchased and started a number of companies herself, including a computer training center, a manufacturing business, highway heavy contracting, a fishing lodge in Canada and, of course, Eagle Accounting.

She always felt that Eagle had the edge when it came to consulting work because, as she put it, “We’ve been on the front line of owning and running a business, and so we understand the stress and excitement of the entrepreneur.”

Karen loved going to work every day, helping clients understand the impact of their business decisions; showing them ways to improve efficiencies, cut costs and increase productivity. She made sure our clients always knew where they stood financially.

Today, her entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to clear, concise, compassionate service is carried on by her sons, Jesse Frye and Donovan Frye. They share her philosophy and provide the same experienced, exceptional family service for which Eagle Accounting has always been known.
