Monetti and Standard Merge to Form a CPA Business Advisory and Support Firm

Posted on September 17, 2019 By

CPAs Ernest Standard, Jr., and Frank Monetti, both of Toms River, have merged their practices to form MonettiStandard PC, Accountants and Advisors, 1861 Hooper Avenue, Suite 8, Toms River.

Standard said, “Frank and I often found ourselves consulting. With the synergy we had, it was easy to see that together not only as CPAs but also advisors we could help a lot of small businesses grow successfully.”

In keeping with their goal of being CPAs AND valued business advisors, for a limited time MonettiStandard is offering, free of charge, a mini analysis of local businesses. Standard said, “We want to do things a little differently. We want to be more involved in businesses, more engaged in their management. For example, how do you determine your prices? How do you collect your money? Wouldn’t it be better to have advisors on your business team who would prevent problems before they occur?”

Before forming MonettiStandard, Standard was a tax expert and advisor at Standard and Associates, Toms River, N.J. He has worked as a public accountant since 1974 and a certified public accountant since 1980. A graduate of Toms River High School, Standard earned his B.S. in accounting at Rider University, Lawrence Township, N.J.

Standard served as a Major, now retired, in the New Jersey National Guard and a full-time accounting instructor at Ocean County College. He is a trustee of Renaissance Homeowners Association, Manchester; chairman of the Toms River Township Rent Leveling Board; and a member of the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA) and the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).

Having graduated from Christian Brothers Academy (CBA), Lincroft, Frank Monetti earned both his B.S. in accounting and his MAcct, Taxation, from the Virginia Tech, Pamplin College of Business. For 13 years, he was the owner of his Toms River CPA firm. Prior to that, he was a supervisor at Holman & Frenia, PC for six years, supervising individual and small businesses.

Monetti was a mentor of SCORE of Ocean County and part of a team that provided free, confidential business advice to entrepreneurs. He is a member of COBA (Central Ocean Business Association), and a member of the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA) and the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).

Monetti said, “I see every business and nonprofit organization as a puzzle. My goal as a CPA and advisor is to help people involved in small businesses and nonprofit organizations make sense of that puzzle so everything fits together as well as possible. That way, everyone is more likely to meet personal and financial goals. The businesses I can help the most are those who want focused, in-depth advice.”

The firm MonettiStandard is a member of the Greater Toms River and Southern Ocean chambers of commerce. For more information, contact Ernest Standard at and Frank Monetti at
