About Us

PERSONAL MANAGEMENT SERVICES stands out from other businesses, not because of our great expertise and diverse background, but because of the overt friendliness and caring towards our clients. But don't mistake our warmth for lack of knowledge, as we offer you expert advice and service in many areas of finance, accounting, tax planning and other personal services.

Our staff are all employees of Personal Management Services. Most are employed on a seasonal basis from January to April. HARLEY SNYDER, owner, manages our office and is assisted by MYRIAM SEGURA, and GLORIA YANES. We have been serving clients who live abroad for over 15 years. Harley's wife, MARY SNYDER, assists with e-mails and paperwork.

He has had extensive experience in the non-profit sector, in the U.S., Canada, Bangladesh and Haiti. Returning to the U.S. in 1984, he has specialized in business and personal services for small businesses, professionals and individuals.

If credentials are important to you, Harley has a few. Graduated 1st (Valedictorian) in his high school class; majored in Accounting at Ohio State University and graduated with a B.S.B.A. (Bachelor of Science in Business Administration). He is licensed in Canada as a CPA (Certified Professional Accountant).
