2003 to Present
Financial Accountant
Confronted upon commencement with a department impacted negatively through historically inefficient work practices, lack of training and follow-up, and customized industry-specific software unable to produce the caliber of financial reports critical for management to forecast continued business health.
· Conceived, launched, and solidified changes to the company’s existing job costing reporting model to refine profit recognition for each construction project. Independently researched and learned the BusinessCraft job costing module, and embarked on a time-intensive manual check of 800 projects—scrutinizing revenues, expenditures, and generated margins.
· Overcame existing system deficiencies in cash flow forecasting by developing a tool for management to capture accurate information on cash holdings that would aid future decision-making. Designed Excel spreadsheet that integrated with the legacy BusinessCraft system, identifying negative cash flow scenarios, income and expenditure details, closing bank balances, and borrowings.
· Corrected adhoc “system” that continually failed to produce monthly CEO financial reports to deadline. Devised and rigorously enforced compliance to new timelines, articulating the criticality of bank compliance commitments. All reports now consistently meet targets internally, with external stakeholders receiving monthly and quarterly reports that meticulously conform to policy.
· Uncovered and corrected erroneously allocated assets causing understated depreciation figures.
· Eliminated backlog of depreciation adjustments for 2002/2003 financial year, substituting actual depreciation entries in favor of end-of-year corrections. New system provides greater accuracy in financial statements for at-a-glance management review.

Conducted exhaustive analysis of profit and loss data, exposed inventory issue, and produced revised reports for external accountancy firm, circumventing potentially damaging complaint to management set to reveal inadequacies of previous franchise accountants, the computerized system, and lack of documentation and financial controls.
· Dramatically reduced potential for error by instigating a software enhancement reminding franchise accountants that management approval was required on journal entries over $100K. Initiative strengthened internal control reporting infrastructure and eliminated regular lapses of franchise accountants seeking management approvals.
· Conceived and developed a funds statement model via spreadsheet that monitored inbound and outbound funds and offered the financial clarity critical for a franchisee of 12 sites to identify data irregularities impacting cash flows, and improve the quality of decision-making.
· Facilitated the net asset settlement of 12 franchises to BP in just 5 months—the first multi-site closure and transfer of assets in the company’s franchise history. Coordinated recording and processing of 300 outstanding invoices, staff wages, merchandise, and rent, and developed an Excel spreadsheet to monitor all inbound/outbound funds, meeting strict deadlines.
· Conducted on-the-job bank reconciliation training to new recruits using the VAX accounting system. Increased staff knowledge reduced the reliance on senior personnel to provide routine assistance, and boosted across-the-board departmental efficiencies.
· Reversed ad hoc approach to physical stock takes, recommending a perpetual system that tackled the mounting incidences of stock errors.
