As chief financial officer, Ms. Lawless will oversee all of Element's accounting practices including preparing budgets, financial reports, and executing all tax and audit functions. She will also be spearheading the "Orion" team which includes directing company financial strategies and developing forecast models as well as frequent meetings with the president of Element Kitchen and Bath Tom Helenski, the vice president of sales Nicolas DAlleva, and the rest of the department heads on accounting and financial issues.
Element Kitchen and Bath has been growing as the preferred kitchen and bath remodeler in the Blue Bell PA and all of eastern Pennsylvania and has established offices in Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, and Bethlehem PA. As company's expansion continues, Ms. Lawless's job will expand to studying, analyzing and reporting on growth trends as well as analyzing the viability expansion and project the company's future growth.
"We had many great candidates for the open position, but Courtney's resume stood out above all others. She has over 7 years experience in a senior role, is a CPA, and has up to date knowledge of current financial and accounting computer applications,"
Homeowners and commercial property managers in and around Blue Bell PA have used Element for their kitchen and bath remodeling, design, and construction needs for over 15 years. Through mostly word of mouth advertising, Element has been grown their company over the last 15 years from a small family owned business to a large boutique style remodeler anchored by a team of killed designers and architects. "We have grown so rapidly over the last 15 years, we never really gave much thought to company growth and projections and such," said Tom Helenski. "That's 'wall street' talk to me. We have always been focused on great designs and quality construction and have naturally expanded outside of Blue Bell into all of East PA. My team and I have created a truly great company and its an accomplishment to finally have the size to warrant an in-house accounting and financial service staff. We are accustomed to outsourcing many accounting and financial reporting to outside firms. With our newly hired in house CFO Courtney Lawless, I feel we will be able to grow not by happenstance but through deliberate action by having a truly skilled employee working for us that has vested interested in the expansion and growth of the company."
Ms. Lawless will begin her employment with Element Kitchen and Bath on May 1st, 2009.
