Donny has gained a wealth of finance and accounting knowledge with his experience working in a variety of industries. He has been part of the leadership team in companies ranging in size, from a small company with less than 30 employees, to a large publicly traded company with hundreds of employees. He is skilled in implementing processes to improve department efficiencies and reduce expenses, streamlining the month-end close, and creating financial statements for the leadership team.
I have found process improvement to be the most satisfying project in my career. I like to evaluate the current process and identify the areas that need improvement by engaging with the stakeholders on all levels of the process. Improving procedural inefficiencies not only helps reduce costs but is also a strong morale booster for those involved.
Like process improvement, system implementation can also create efficiencies. I have led or been part of teams that have implemented AP processing, employee expense management, and full ERPs throughout my career. Implementing a new system can be a lengthy and expensive process. I have found the key to a successful system implementation or conversion is the hours spent in the preparation phase.
I have been fortunate to be part of small and large accounting teams in a variety of industries throughout my career. This has allowed me to gain experience in all aspects of accounting and the knowledge of industry variations.
