History

Altair Group was founded on the premise of doing things differently. Prospective clients often tell us after our introductory meeting that we are unlike any accountant they have ever encountered. Our combination of deep technical expertise, easy to understand communication and a fun/friendly firm culture, produce a unique client experience.

Shannon Hudson, CPA, MST

Shannon started her career in public accounting right out of college with PwC in Boston working in the Personal Financial Services group with high net worth individuals, private equity & venture capital owners, and C suite executives. After nearly a decade in Boston, she migrated closer to home joining a mid-tier firm, continuing her work with high net worth individuals and honed her skills working with businesses, trusts and estates. Shannon works with a variety of clients ranging from individuals with complex matters, international taxation, professional services, to businesses in their start up stage and those preparing for exit.

A native of Bangor, Maine, Shannon moved to New Hampshire when she attended Bentley and fell in love with the Granite State. She currently resides in Bedford with her Chiweenie, Bella and two cats. When Shannon isn’t working or shopping, she loves bringing Bella to the dog park, playing Bingo (yes, Bingo) with her friends, participating in fantasy sports, cooking and her recent addition to the list, paint night!
