My goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of my clients by providing organized, efficient and high quality bookkeeping and business services.

Doerte Lindner Pasadena Bookkeeping Accounting Financial Consulting

Hello, I’m Doerte Lindner and I am the founder of Lindner Business Management. I work with a select group of individuals, families and local businesses, providing financial support, reporting, and control. My work ranges from bookkeeping, bill paying to more complex financial tasks, depending on my client’s needs.

As a former Project Manager for Citibank and Branch Manager for City National Bank serving local businesses and high net worth individuals, it became clear to me that the most successful people work with someone who provides structure, organization, and financial leadership. My goal with Lindner Business Management is to offer the same kind of personalized service, financial leadership, and support.

Financial Leadership is about providing a strong foundation upon which you and your business can realize its true potential.

As a banker, I have worked with hundreds of small businesses and individuals with varying financial needs and as a result, I have developed a trusted network of local investment advisors, CPA’s, bankers, insurance agents and payroll consultants. This allows me to provide my clients with institutional-level service that is both personable and affordable.

It’s about being honest in word and action. It means being able to provide accurate information. Trust, reliability and communication are key.



I care about my clients and their success. It’s not just about numbers… I am an advocate for my clients and care about the big picture as well.



I believe in hard work and constantly striving to improve one’s skills. It’s important to remain up to date and knowledgeable in the financial field. Education is a continuous process and part of the job.

Doerte has been incredibly important and impactful to our business.  She gets the big picture, and is able to communicate that in a clear manner, which allows smart financial decisions on the part of management.  Her positive demeanor and discipline to details give me confident that the information we use is accurate and meaningful for planning.


Robert Ballo

Owner of Goal Productions, Inc. , Goal Productions, Inc.

We brought in Doerte to have another pair of eyes looking over our financial situation, accounting and business processes. Doerte was able to wear many hats, learn our system and pitch in while also monitoring overall functioning of our business.

Doerte has helped us by being able to both dig into the details of our sometimes complicated accounting and also see the bigger picture.  Her experience in banking helped us streamline foreign payments and deal efficiently with our bank, as well as advise us on important services we needed to add without going overboard on cost. The most positive aspect of working with Doerte is her desire to tackle any project with enthusiasm and break it down to manageable pieces.

The two most significant improvements that have resulted from working with Doerte is 1) having someone who really cares about our business watching our finances and 2) suggestions from someone with a wide range of business experience.

As the executive director, I have been able to focus my attention on areas where my expertise was more needed since I can rely on an efficient, responsible, and expert professional such as Ms. Lindner.

I was an Olympic Athlete at the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney, Australia.
