Khyati Amin & Urvik Patel were both born in Gujarat, India’s westernmost state, but it took them until college to meet, fall in love, get married and open their location of Succentrix Business Advisors in Savannah, GA. Urvik was studying to be an accountant and Khyati was studying to be a health professional when they met at Savannah State University. Urvik convinced Khyati to study accounting along with him and, after several events with the International Student Affairs program involving the celebrations and dances of their shared culture, they decided that the serendipity of their meeting was too blatant to ignore. The rest is “history in the making”.
Urvik moved to the United States when he was 12 years old. He lived in both Michigan and Ohio before his family moved to Savannah. Even at an early age, Urvik’s mathematical and analytical skills made him stand out. He was awarded “man of the semester in accounting” at age 16. He knew that he wanted to go to college to become an accountant. Khyati lived in Orlando, Florida for five years before she and her family relocated to Savannah. She knew as a young woman that she loved math and biology, but until she met Urvik, her career path was undecided. In May of 2018, Urvik and Khyati completed their Master of Accounting with specialization in Taxation from Georgia Southern University and the couple decided together to embrace their dream of owning their own accounting business.
While in college, both Urvik and Khyati worked in the retail industry and have gained management experience. They have also worked at Savannah State University as an accounting professional and as a tax assistant for a local CPA. Their work ethic, eagerness to put down roots and engaging personalities has earned them both, as individuals and as a couple, a rich banquet of friends. They both enjoy spending time with family, decorating their new home as a married couple and mingling in the Savannah scene. As young entrepreneurs, both Urvik and Khyati offer independent business owners fresh energy and a zeal for the accounting profession. You will enjoy getting to know these vibrant entrepreneurs and growing your businesses together!
