  • Attend quarterly Board Meetings representing the finance function.

  • Built a budget model, based on management’s requirements, and maintain rolling forecasts to help manage costs and for Board presentations and requests.

  • Set up separate sets of financial statements for each foreign entity, in their local currency, as well as consolidating financial statements in accordance with GAAP and have maintained on a monthly basis.

  • Coordinate with local payroll providers and tax firms so that all statutory requirements are met.
