Who We Are
Janice Staub – BA, CIM
Janice has an extensive background in the music industry having worked in the early part of her career in Los Angeles for a major record company, moving eventually to a film and TV production company, and later to a cartoon production company.
She eventually moved to Canada and shifted her focus to financial planning and money management with a goal of helping entertainers grow and retain their wealth. Through this early involvement, she saw a need to develop a comprehensive business management company that was able to not only help artists collect and manage their money and businesses effectively, but also help guide them through their careers. Today she heads up a team of experienced professionals who assist clients in all aspects of business management, money management, tax planning and financial planning.
Ron Page – HBComm, CGA
Ron has broad experience in the accounting profession having prior employment with newspaper publishing, lawn & garden supplier, and food wholesaler companies. He obtained his CGA professional accounting designation in 2005 and joined YFM.
Since then he has gained extensive experience in the music industry under the leadership of Janice Staub. Having worked closely with many successful international artists he possesses a wealth of knowledge in all facets of business management. In short, “we at YFM support our clients by supervising and managing their day-to-day financial affairs and business concerns.”

Bryan Layfield – BTech, CGA
With over 15 years in Accounting and Financial Management experience, including 10 years here at YFM, Bryan has an extensive range of experience dealing with clients of all levels. In the intricate world of international financial accounting, Bryan has an uncanny ability to explain complex financial information in a simplistic matter to his clients, while providing guidance and direction to all business matters that arise.
Bryan earned both his Diploma and Degree from BCIT, majoring in Financial Management and Accounting. He then went on to receive his CGA designation in 2010, and was recognized as one of the Top 10 Graduating Students in British Columbia and was also awarded the David B.

Although it may seem Bryan is a “numbers guy”, his skills are extremely well rounded and has an innate ability to think outside the box.
Bryan is married to his beautiful wife Mara, and father to his daughter Adriana. When Bryan’s not busy being a husband and father, you can find him on the slopes of North Shore Mountains either Snowboarding or biking, or at the golf course.
