As leaves continue to fall and temperatures to sizzle here at the PCG headquarters there is no sign of slowing down: In September we have added three times more new clients to our ever expanding client list then the previous month, and two more amazing employees, Marie Estorge, Advanced Accountant, and Eric Reinacher, Accounting Associate. Marie Estorge is an experienced accountant with 10+ years in a role of Sr. Accountant. Besides her professional passion for Accounting and numbers, she is a Head Dive Coach at her local High School, fiction book writer, and an excellent cook judging by all yummy meals we see her eating during her down times at PCG. She joined the Accounting Team led by Ashley Brunner, and team members David Lee and Jamie Dumont. Eric Reinacher is a recent college graduate form the UC Davis. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. In his free time Eric enjoys playing bass and soccer. He speaks German and Spanish, and compliments our team with his intelligence and a great sense of humor. As a part of continued effort to participate in local events and give back to a community, Pacific Crest Group team has participated in American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event on 08/25/2012 and helped raise $2,845.00. Led by Dory Weston, one of our Accounting Associates, PCG had a team walking in the event for 24 hours. Her leadership and inspiration garnered tremendous support for this worthy cause. Thank you to everyone who supported us and thank you, Dory, for organizing this fun event for our team. On September 20th yet another successful Marin Business Forum event we sponsor took place at the Wood Island Auditorium. Collaborative Entrepreneurship: How Networks of Small Companies Can Do Big Things” was the subject that drew the crowd of 40 attendees.

The presenter, John Stayton, Director and Co-founder of Venture Greenhouse and Assistant Professor MBA in Sustainable Enterprise (Green MBA) for Dominican University of California offered some valuable insights on startups and tips of building small businesses as part of a collaborative community. Attendees participated in a quick team networking exercise and exchanged ideas and contact information. Afterwards, everyone participated in a lottery drawing while enjoying surprisingly warm weather, beverages, tasty appetizers and magnificent views of San Francisco Bay from our deck. Lucky winners received spa gift certificates, etc…For more information about this and upcoming Marin Business Forum events please visit the MBF website:http://marinbusinessforum.com/.

We have also celebrated two PCG team members’ birthdays in the month of September: Kathleen, our Admin. Associate and Gail, our HR Director, were put on a spot and honored by the whole PCG team for everything they do for us with delicious baking creations made as usual by Carolyn Pettit, our baker extraordinaire/HR specialist/Dancing instructor. We all indulged in chocolate and cream, and a wave of sugar high carried us for at least another week and helped us keep up with the high-paced environment of our office. Halloween spirit took our office by storm on October 31st . Chips, salsa, costumes and playfulness brought a taste of upcoming Holiday season to our workplace and left us entertained and inspired. Between variety of characters that showed up that day we had a tigress, a police woman with a baton, a guy from Studio 68 with a big hair and matching glasses, and a flower child from the 60’s with a lots of beads and a flowery dress. All of them have made this experience one to remember for a long time. Holiday season has arrived at the PCG office with a bang!
