Urvik Patel and Khyati Amin were both born in Gujarat, India’s westernmost state, but it took them until college to meet, fall in love, and get married. Urvik was studying to be an accountant and Khyati was studying to be a doctor when they met at Savannah Technical College. 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 spearheads Succentrix Business Advisors Savannah with the energy and enthusiasm of a young entrepreneur, however, you will appreciate the journey that he took to owning his own business. 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 month in accounting” at age 16. He knew that he wanted to go to college to become an accountant. In May of 2018, Urvik completed his Master of Accounting with specialization in Taxation from Georgia Southern University.
While in college, Urvik worked at Kroger’s corporate division and gained management and accounting experience. He then decided to work at Savannah State University as an accounting professional and as a tax assistant for a local CPA. His work ethic, eagerness to put down roots and engaging personality has earned him a rich banquet of friends. Urvik enjoys spending time with family, decorating his new home with Khyati and mingling in the Savannah scene. As an independent business owner himself, Urvik can offer each small business owner a shared perspective yet a fresh energy and a zeal for the accounting profession. You will enjoy getting to know this vibrant entrepreneur and growing your businesses together!
