A Bit About Me
I am a expert at implementing accounting, finance and IT systems into small and middle market business, including the creation of accounts receivable reports, gross margin reports, proformas, sales performance, and cashflow models that integrate directly with the accounting and operating data of the firm. In addition, my design of these systems provide for data mapping, and bank and loan reporting, as well as ad hoc reports.
After completing my bachelor's degree in business finance and my master's degree in business administration in 1993, my career began in financial reporting manager and soon gravitated into providing these services to other operating divisions, and then later to other companies. My industry experience includes financial, home building, subcontractor management and oversight, and staffing companies. It also includes restructuring analysis for companies in financial distress.
Given my nearly thirty years of focus on accounting and financial reporting, and experience with dozens of financial and operating software packages, I am recognized as a subject matter expert and routinely provide advice to companies in a myriad of industries.
