Yvonne serves as Financial Controller of B&D. Though she started with us as a contract employee, she loved working with our team so much she chose to come on full-time. Having served in a variety of roles within the finance industry, including an assistant vice president of an insurance company, Yvonne brings a wealth of experience to our company. Yvonne has played an instrumental role in helping our business grow, and we are very fortunate to have such a detail-oriented, passionate employee on our team.
When I stepped into my role, I standardized many processes in order to be more forward-looking. We’ve worked together with the leadership team to implement controls and long-term financial planning. These changes have allowed us to better strategize and identify areas of improvement and better serve our clients.
