We are excited to announce the addition of Amanda L. White, CPA to our team. Amanda joins us as a Senior Managing Consultant, Collaborative Accounting with more than 20 years of experience in both private industry and public accounting. She specializes in monthly accounting services and support of clients on a diverse range of commonly used government contractor accounting systems. She brings diverse experience to the table having most recently led the regional accounting outsourcing group for a large public accounting firm. In that role, she oversaw a team of accountants providing ongoing accounting services and monthly close support for almost 100 clients, while also serving as a subject matter expert assisting clients with cleanup projects, process improvements, best practice implementations in their monthly accounting procedures. She has supported businesses in numerous industries across the country, both government contractors and commercial entities, and previously worked in a controllership role for a government contractor supporting the space and defense industry.
Redstone GCI is excited to have Amanda on our team and her expertise was sought specifically in response to our client’s requests for support in the monthly accounting area. Amanda’s role as the lead of our collaborative accounting group will be different from the traditional accounting outsourcing model. We believe that a full outsourced accounting solution for all but the smallest of companies is a long-term liability for our clients. Too often we have seen clients dependent upon their outsourced accounting solution long beyond where it made sense from a financial or maturity perspective. Instead, we plan to work in a collaborative manner with our clients’ existing accounting staff to assist with periods of rapid growth, as well as develop processes and practices to facilitate long-term growth and maturity through a combination of SME support from our team coupled with employee accounting staff as growth dictates. We have had a great deal of success with this approach within the Human Resources, Contract Administration, DCAA Compliance, Proposal Pricing Support, and other back office areas. We envision Amanda being an invaluable resource to many of our small to mid-sized government contractors that will complement our firm’s existing strengths afforded to our over 700 government contractor clients. She will serve as strategic support to our small to mid-sized contractors, specifically in the monthly accounting and contract reporting cycle, as well as augmenting our compliance, software implementation and other teams supporting our clients from other areas within our firm. She is currently supporting multiple clients with month-end review, process improvement and other initiatives designed to get the most out of our client’s accounting infrastructure today and mature processes to support long-term growth for tomorrow.
