As the company’s financial officer, my role is the management of the corporate accounting and finance department; ensuring timely and accurate financial reporting to all of our stakeholders, including owners, managers and banks. I manage the company’s owner / lender relationships, and work with our operators to identify and exploit opportunities and spot negative trends before they become issues.
I worked my way through college preparing individual and business tax returns at a local CPA firm, eventually earning a Master’s Degree in Accounting from THE University of Florida. After college, I moved to Atlanta and joined Deloitte, conducting audits in the construction, retail, real estate and software industries. Subsequently, I accepted a role with PwC in the financial due diligence arm of Mergers and Acquisitions, working on deals ranging in size from $40-million to over a billion dollars. It was this valuable experience that eventually led me to my current role.
