Q&A
Q. Describe your most memorable Armanino moment.
Tracking our client retention rate and recognizing it remains at 98 percent annually.  It’s a great testament to Armanino’s unwavering commitment to client success.
Q. Make a prediction, describe your vision of the business future.
Cloud software will remain the enablement tool for mobility, shared data and increased productivity. Companies who become proficient with business process optimization and enabling all their stakeholders with Cloud solutions – customers, management team members, employees and vendors – will reap the benefit of increased efficiency. From the board room to the shop floor, hotel room and branch offices, your team will have the computing power to impact the business at their fingertips, anytime, anywhere.
Q. Without naming names, tell us about your favorite client and why you enjoyed working with them.
My favorite clients are those that we help get to the next level, whether they are expanding operations or expanding top-line revenue. These clients have recognized that growth comes from a solid strategy, executing and utilizing technology in more and better ways than they have in the past.
Q. Describe your work style.
Results-oriented, always moving forward to help our clients achieve success.  I am committed to supporting our staff’s professional growth by providing technical skills development programs and serving as a hands-on instructor for our internal training sessions. I work with my team to bring clarity to everything we do by setting goals and managing toward their achievement.
Q. If you could pass on a nugget of wisdom to aspiring accountants or consultants, what would that be?
Seek to be empowered. When you ask for and take on more responsibility, promotions and raises will come.
