I have extensive experience helping leaders make actionable decisions with the help of appropriate KPI’s visualized in dashboards and reports. I always take the approach of understanding the drivers of the business to develop KPI’s that can be truly used to make actionable decisions, not just provide numbers. Part of helping leaders understand the information is through visualizations, I build dashboards that are visually appealing and allow the data to tell a story.
The ability to think critically and provide non-bias recommendations is key to success as a finance leader. I have proven experience providing all types of analysis and provide recommendations on many different types of projects. A good analysis always starts with understanding that problem or goal and working towards the most efficient or most profitable decision. NPV analysis, business strategy decisions, and compensation analysis are just some of the types of analysis I have experience in.
Whether it's building out executive level reports, operational level reports, or complex financial models, excel can often times be the most cost-effective way to quickly publish a report or answer a question. I have many years of experience building complex reports, dashboards, and analysis in excel which includes an in depth understanding of macros within excel. I have used macros to complete repetitive tasks such as publish 1,500 versions of a report daily to a field sales organization. I have also created many robust analysis models that allow for plug and play type analysis.
