Mr. Elder Ayala was born and raised in the state of Guerrero, Mexico. He came to the United States at the age of 18 just shortly after graduating from High School. He barely spoke English, so he enrolled in the ESL program at Delaware Technical Community College in Wilmington. After a year and half later, he was accepted at Goldey-Beacom College – a local private business college where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration focusing on Information Technology. Elder has demonstrated a great passion on Education and Advocacy as a key to pursue better opportunities not only in the workplace but also in society to helping others achieve their dreams. Just before his graduation, he was recruited to work for Citibank as a Software Engineer. He continued to work for major companies like Bank of America, Verizon, Collabera, Inc and others. While he was employed by the major players in the Financial and Banking industries, he was also pursuing his career as an entrepreneur. By the end of 2008, he started his first business “CompuMex Consulting” that focused
primarily in the computer and mobile repair services. Later in 2009 and with his strong entrepreneurial and accounting expertise, he decided to start CMC Group Taxes, LLC – an Accounting and Tax Service firm. It was not until 2015 that Elder made one of the most challenging decisions of going full-time as an entrepreneur saying good-bye to Corporate America. CMC Group Taxes, LLC now serves more than a thousand clients including individuals and small businesses. In addition, he is an innovator as he created an App called “TaxMee” App, which solely purpose is to assist his clients with their tax preparation process on-the- go. Elder is married and has two children. He believes in giving back to the community is a way to thank God for all the blessings he and his family are so grateful for. Also, he is very active in his community by helping others achieve their personal and business goals.
