Knowing that AR is just one piece of the complex financial jigsaw puzzle in an organization, I always try to think out of the box, to demonstrate an excellent understanding of all accounting procedures, and to propose improvements to continually enhance the function. In practice, this translates to:

  • a deep knowledge of billing, accounting, and collections processes, systems, and best practices
  • the ability to combine meticulous financial management with objective critical thinking in order to provide sound guidance to leadership on customer accounts and billings
  • regular leadership and organizational recognition (Team of the Year, Employee of the Month x 3)
