About Us

Our Story

Semaphore® is a family of companies built on a commitment to provide concierge-level service to every client. While our roots are in tax and finance, we didn’t stop there. At the dawn of the YouTube age in 2009, Semaphore® began working with up-and-coming Influencers. Our clients had dreams to not only turn hobbies into legitimate businesses; they wanted to build media empires. Through our team’s savvy financial leadership and guidance, a multi-billion-dollar industry, now known as the creator economy, was born. The Semaphore® Family of Companies was a significant catalyst to this growth.


Leading the way

As the new media industry grew and more Influencers rose to fame, so did Semaphore®. Over time, Semaphore® became the industry leader in Influencer financial and business management.

Today, Semaphore® is much more than simply tax and accounting. Since 2014, we’ve added talent and brand management to our growing family of companies. Our portfolio of clients boasts more than $300,000,000 in annual revenue, and we have helped countless Influencers build generational wealth through lucrative brand partnerships, licensing deals and strategic syndication strategies.

A different partnership

While helping Influencers retain and build financial wealth remains at the core of what we do, it’s who we are that truly sets Semaphore® apart. Our full-time expert staff of financial and business professionals make it their personal mission to integrate into every facet of our Influencer clients’ businesses year-round. This doesn’t happen with the occasional check-ins and emails most other financial services firms offer. At Semaphore®, our team prides itself on being the most sought-after Influencer business partner in the industry. After all, building in-depth relationships with each Influencer client that spans the highs and lows of each new media cycle isn’t just what we do; it’s who we are. Only Semaphore®.
