Never give up.
– Scott Doody
Scott Doody

I was raised in Maine, attended both Military school and University, and then joined the Marines. After leaving the service, I worked in various industries including pharmaceutical and medical device companies, and I also taught at CSU Northridge.

In 2004 it was time to try my hand at my own business – providing payroll and human resource services to small businesses. That field coincides nicely with the Marines’ training in procedure, repetition and process control.

I enjoy helping people and believe that kindness works best alongside my “never give up” approach to life.

Mr. Scott Doody founded and served as President of Quartermaster Payroll Services for nearly 15 years. His experiences in System Implementation, Supply Chain Management, and Employer Services have been invaluable to the small business entrepreneurs that he helped.


Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
– Martin Luther King
Mike Parker

With more than 18 years of experience in IT, I have been involved with several successful small businesses where I have played an integral role as a technology leader and have helped them achieve their goals.

I learned at an early age that I naturally seek out answers and this led to defining the details for projects and solving problems. I found I was good at directing rather than following. As one associate said, “When Mike says he will take care of something, it is done.”

I love helping businesses and individuals attain their goals and dreams. I am grateful for being healthy and live with purpose. My intent is to be beneficial to the universe and its living creatures.

Well-known for starting from scratch to becoming one of the table-turning forces in IT, Mike Parker has achieved major milestones in the IT industry, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology and a Master’s degree in Information Systems. His impressive work portfolio includes facilitating growth by transforming outdated IT infrastructures, implementing cloud technology and leading security tools, as well as streamlining operations to maximize resources and reduce costs. He has developed and led high-performing teams through all technical aspects of business management. With more than 18 years of experience in IT, he is a well-rounded IT executive, a progressive expert with comprehensive expertise complemented by strong analytical, planning, communication, and organizational talents. He has overseen individual specialties of cross-functional professionals to coordinate data operations for both enterprise-level, and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.

Sue Pelletier

I have been a passionate leader of diverse experiences ranging from small business to enterprise sales for 25 years. I am known for attracting top talent and for my insightful strategy and execution to deliver consistent growth in turnaround situations.

Now that I have retired from corporate America, I am delighted to share my expertise to benefit small businesses in achieving growth and success through bookkeeping and financial knowledge. I think SmartBean™ is the perfect platform for me to accomplish this.

In the past 25 years, Mrs. Sue Pelletier has held various leadership positions for America’s largest employer services company, Automatic Data Processing (ADP). She has received many awards and recognition. She is highly regarded as an insightful mentor to her peers and employees.


It’s all about integrity and doing what is right, not what is easy.
– Morgan Stevens
Morgan Stevens

As a newly minted college grad with little more than a degree in business under my belt and a passion for the stock market, I set off to Tokyo at the peak of the dot-com bubble to build a career in the fast-paced and cut-throat hedge fund world.

By the time I returned to the US nearly fifteen years later, I not only carried the hard-earned wisdom and battle scars of several market cycles, but also a broader appreciation for the most enduring, impactful, and rewarding parts of life. To me, those are the relationships we build with our children, our spouses, our friends, our clients, and our colleagues.

As a small business owner, I value tools and small business bookkeeping services like SmartBean that makes life easier. SmartBean allows me to focus more of my time on building those relationships, exploring a wide array of market opportunities, and maybe even sneak in a round or three of golf!

Mr. Stevens is a well-respected and highly skilled financial advisor and fund manager with extensive knowledge of both the public and private equity markets. Originally from Orange County, Mr. Stevens spent 15 years in Japan’s hedge fund and institutional banking industry before returning to the US to start Morgan Stevens Asset Management, LLC in 2015.
