Accounting Manager

Dear Mr. Johnson —

Finance teams are the lifeblood of a business. Without them, we might lose track of progress. We might also not be able to forecast successes coming down the line. It is the pulse of the business. That's why I have a passion for the finance group. It is more about understanding the business than it is simply performing calculations.

During my tenure as a previous Accounting Manager I was able to:
Assist with hiring more than 15 accounting professionals.
Assist with all internal tax needs as well as client tax needs during annual tax season.
Performed more than 100 corporate audits for our clients utilizing all sorts of finance professionals.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
