Sean Capistrano, CPA


When Sean was nearing graduation from CSUMB, he began to seriously think about where he wanted to work. He knew he didn’t want to commute to the Bay Area, relocate his family or work for one of the big four. He desired to be employed with a firm that was large enough to allow him to work with companies in a variety of industries, but permitted him to make a positive impact on individuals as well, invested in his growth and development, and most importantly, respected the significance of a work-life balance. During his internship with Hayashi Wayland, he quickly learned that the Firm was a great fit for him and his family, and shortly after, was offered an Associate position.

Since starting his career at HW, Sean has been promoted three times, became licensed as a CPA and has been challenged in many ways. He was the 2015 HW Relay For Life Team Captain where his team helped raise nearly $15,000, and he has been board Treasurer of MY Museum for the past four years.

“Hayashi Wayland recognizes that we all have lives outside of the office walls. Through my time here, they have shown that they are flexible, understanding, and willing to work to figure out how to find the best solution for both the firm and its employees. Everyone’s circumstances are different, and they help deal with them accordingly. Hayashi Wayland treats its employees as people that are a part of a team and not just as a service provider in an office.”
