Hayashi Wayland Team: Individual Talents, Singular Focus
When Douglas Hayashi and Warren Wayland opened the doors to Hayashi Wayland in 1976, they had no idea that decades later, the firm would become a premier accounting firm serving the entire Central Coast.  They did, however, have strong ideas on what would guide them. They committed to measure their success by the success of their clients, and to build a stronger community.

From these two ideals, a full-service, community-minded firm emerged.  Our professionals partner with clients, know their industries and invest in them as individuals. We provide the most comprehensive array of professional services in the area. We offer expertise in traditional accounting, retirement planning, investing, business valuation, litigation support and consulting services.  And we enrich the communities we serve through extensive volunteering and other means of support.

Our holistic approach to serving clients and communities embodies the vision of our founders, and ensures a greater opportunity for you.
