Connect with Betty Larose

When DHIC had a sudden opening for our Controller position, Betty Larose stepped in, took on the role with minimal guidance, and immediately proved how much of a self-starter she is with learning about our industry and nuances of tax credit and bond funding.  She also took on some specialized reporting required by our funders, figured out the system on her own, and created a much better method for handling the process.  Betty fits in perfectly as a member of our small finance team of six, always having a pleasant attitude and ready to help in any area we need it.  Her work ethic is exceptional and that, combined with her experience and the quality of her work deliverables, makes Betty the perfect partner for our team.

DHIC

Our CPA firm identified that our company required more sophisticated financial oversight and strategic planning in order to continue to grow; services which they could not provide.  We began collaborating with John Autrey as our part time / virtual CFO in 2016 and later added Betty Larose to review our financial processes and current business strategies.  John and Betty were able to fine tune what we had while not disrupting the core processes and tools in place.  We count heavily on the planning and advice we receive from Betty and John, and they are integral to our continued success.

We believe that adding the Rankin McKenzie team was one of the best strategic moves that we have made.  On a more personal note, the entire team feels that Betty and John are a great addition to our work family.
