Q&A
Q. What was it that drew you to Armanino?
I had seen the investment Armanino made in the nonprofit sector and it was an immediate draw. The resources, expertise and education Armanino provides to nonprofit organizations is extensive and offers great value. The opportunity to provide my clients with more tools was exciting.
Q. Without naming names, tell us about your favorite client and why you enjoyed working with them.
A software engineering company with a subsidiary in India. I’ve spent three weeks a year in Bangalore, India for the last 10 years. The first year I went I’d never traveled outside of North America. My mother-in-law called it jumping off the “high dive” of travel. The client has always been great to work with and I adapted quickly. In India I learned how to ride a camel and play cricket. This audit jump-started my interest in travel.
Q. Describe your work style.
Value oriented. One of my goals is to help our clients improve and always add value. My experience allows me to identify and share “best practices” in the areas of internal controls, accounting systems, governance policies and external financial reporting (audited financial statements).
Q. What’s your proudest moment?
Professionally, it would be helping our clients succeed and thrive.
Q. If you could pass on a nugget of wisdom to aspiring accountants or consultants, what would that be?
Find what you’re good at and enjoy doing. From what I’ve seen, success in public accounting is usually the result of hard work and having a passion for your career.
