Winter 2014

New Hires for PCG teams:
Our company has been growing rapidly over the last few months. We would like to introduce Jehanne De Walque and Brad Kennison as our new Accounting Managers & Controllers leading our accounting teams. Susan Burnett joined us as an Advanced Accountant. Our HR department has added Katrina Fehring as a Senior HR Advisor. And last but not least, we would like to welcome Adrienne Robertson in the role of a Bookkeeper, and Andrew LaPorte as a new Accounting Associate.

New Consultant to expand Strategic and Executive Services:
We would like to welcome Susan Jackson as a Senior Analyst/CFO Consultant. With over 20 years of financial and business management experience, she brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise from various roles to deliver proven results. She has performed as a consultant for major hospitals to architectural and engineering firms, helping clients increase revenues, reduce costs and optimize business operations.

Birthdays:
This winter, we celebrated the Birthdays of Veronica, Eric and Larry. Quite an amount of decadent pastries were consumed! Happy Birthday!

Gift Exchange:
Every year, PCG throws a light-hearted gift exchange during the holiday season. It’s always fun to see the gifts that resurface! Not many turn up more than once, but the record for our office is now three years with a well-aged box of red wine. Our office is a little fearful of tasting it, perhaps that’s why it is continuously re-gifted and never enjoyed!

Marin Business Forum:
The January event was a huge success. Speaker Dean Karnazes captivated the audience with his commitment to physical endurance, and the similarities he found in being a successful entrepreneur and long-distance runner.

Fall/Winter 2014

The second half of 2014 brought many changes to PCG as well as a host of holidays for us to celebrate! We are still fine-tuning and adjusting to our new “living” space in San Rafael and having fun exploring our new local environment.

While we haven’t added anyone new to the PCG team, we still have a lot to celebrate! Elaina, Veronica, Gail, Jehanne and Eric all had birthdays. Adrienne, Brad and Jehanne from our accounting team and Katrina from our HR team all celebrated their first anniversary with PCG in November and December. Sarah from our accounting team was promoted to be an Operations Manager and just hit her 4th anniversary with PCG, while Eric was promoted to an Advanced Accountant shortly after hitting his 3rd anniversary with PCG! We are so proud of the amazing core team we are building at PCG who continue to provide excellent accounting, HR and IT services to our clients.

It wouldn’t be any fun if it was all work and no play… Pacific Crest regularly finds time for team building events outside of work. Whether we were bowling with families, having pizza parties, happy hours, celebrating the holidays, or goofing off with our annual post-holiday gift exchange – we capped off 2014 in style!

Summer 2014

The most exciting news to announce is our move from Larkspur Landing to a new office building in downtown San Rafael. We are thrilled with the availability for growth potential and the ability to design the interior space to make it a comfortable new home for PCG. To celebrate this big transition, we hosted an open house summer bash with our community!

In addition, this summer we are pleased to announce the marriage of two people from our accounting department. Sarah Cahill is now Mrs. Sarah Zewan and Jamie Dumont is now Mrs. Jamie Sandeen! We couldn’t be happier for them as they start the next chapter in each of their lives. Over the last few months we brought several new employee additions to our team… Justin Bain is our new Office Administrative Assistant. Sana Suleiman and Elaina Wu are our newest Accounting Associates. We welcome them with open arms!

To close out the summer, we hosted another Marin Business Forum Event at a new location, Drake’s Landing Community Room in Greenbrae on Sept 18th! We learned the Top 5 Things About Crowdfunding. For more information on upcoming events, visit www.marinbusinessforum.com.

We are excited to introduce our newest addition to the HR team! Kayla Acosta is our newest HR Associate and has already begun rounding out the HR department with her witty humor and attention to detail.

Cinco de Mayo this year celebrated PCG’s 11th anniversary of the company! We look forward to many more years to come!
