Financial Maverick: 10+ years' transforming complex data into strategic insights

Canada
Message

✨ A little about me ✨: You might find me a bit reserved when you first meet me, but I warm up quickly and thrive on understanding others' struggles and unique perspectives. I have a genuine passion for helping businesses grow and making a meaningful impact on the lives of those I work with. I like nothing more than a challenge that tests my skills and drives me to acquire new capabilities. Due to the number of organizations I have worked with, I quickly adopt new technologies and can rapidly draw insights into company operations and what needs to be done.


πŸš€ For B2B SaaS and Marketplace startups, I bring solid financial acumen and a people-centric approach to driving success. I enjoy deep diving into data, analyzing micro and macro trends, and using my knowledge to improve organizational efficiency. I am effective at the development and management of KPIs.


πŸ’‘ One of my proudest achievements is repositioning the value proposition of a company's service lines to increase the average contract value by 100%! πŸ“ˆ The journey started when I noticed an issue in the existing strategy. After that, I went through different stages of analysis, testing, and implementation to develop a solution to increase a customer's willingness to pay, ensure service retention, and increase lifetime value.


With over πŸ”Ÿ years of experience in accounting and financial management, I get excited about bringing my skills in strategy and execution to dynamic organizations. My strong track record in financial planning and analysis (FP&A) spearheads innovative solutions, operational performance, and profitable growth that is sustainable and scalable. I have a depth of knowledge that goes beyond IFRS and US GAAP and into identifying and driving systems and process improvements.


I am known for my attention to detail and ability to provide accurate and reliable financial forecasts. In my previous roles, I have successfully managed budgets, developed financial strategies, and implemented risk management and controls to improve financial processes that deliver company-wide results.


🌟 I am a driven and proactive leader passionate about working in a fast-paced and dynamic environment. I am excited about the opportunity to join an organization and help drive its growth and success. Let's connect and explore how my skills can contribute to your team's success! 😊🀝
