For as long as he can remember Great Investor Charlie Dreifus loved numbers. As a child he asked his mother to read numbers to him instead of storybooks. But it wasn’t until he took Professor Abraham Briloff’s accounting course at Baruch College that Dreifus found his calling, what he calls deep dive accounting. Briloff, who became an accounting legend passed away recently at the age of 96. For Dreifus he was a father figure, mentor and life-long friend.
