I brought Joel on board to support the development of the FP&A function. Joel was instrumental in managing a very manual budget process through completion and approval. For the following season, Joel was heavily involved in the implementation of the Prophix planning system that automated the planning cycle and created a consistent and fast approach to forecasting. Joel has great business partnering skills with both peers as well as management. He is adaptable to a variety of financial and analytical projects. He is a welcome addition to a finance team!

Joel has been reporting to me and supporting my team as a consultant since November 2009. He has been a very valuable asset to our FP&A team. Joel has been performing in a consolidation role preparing the budget to actual and quarterly core earnings analyses for total company results made up of over eight regions. This is high profile critical position within our group and he has done a very good job in the role. He quickly developed successful relationships with his co-workers and key stakeholders. Our department is very dynamic with changes that need to be done quick turnaround and I have been continually impressed Joel’s positive attitude and willingness to be flexible. He has also played an integral role in partnering to improve some of our key reporting processes. In addition, Joel has demonstrated a high level of professionalism and sensitivity towards his client co-workers recognizing the uncertainty surrounding the pending acquisition of our company. Joel has a versatile background that is enabling us to redeploy him over to our expense management group starting July 2010, filling a void created by some internal staffing moves. We look forward to having Joel continue to be a successful and important player in our broader finance organization. I would highly recommend him to any organization interested in added to their talent base.
