When the company moved responsibility for accounting from a venture fund into the company, Kim took over as acting CFO, and we never had a problem with accounting after that.  We never had to worry about whether reports or tasks were going to be completed on time or with good quality.  Overall, Kim was quite pleasant to work with as well as serious about making sure the accounting in the business was being done correctly.

We were extremely satisfied with Kim and her work. She settled in quickly and accomplished a great deal. The added bonus was that she quickly assimilated into our team and everyone enjoyed her presence. We were very pleased with the arrangement and will call your firm again should the need arise.

Kim is a tremendous asset to Disruptive Process Solutions.  She’s allowed myself and the rest of our team to stay focused on what we do best – technical solutions for food and beverage manufacturing.  Since working with Kim, she’s helped define and tune our accounting system setup to ensure we have visibility into our company’s financial strengths and weaknesses so we can find ways to improve our bottom line.  Part of this effort was helping us establish proper client on-boarding and workflows to ensure we’re properly leveraging our software.  From a legal perspective, she assisted in connecting and implementing with legal and benefit improvements.  She’s assisted us and provided great foresight into the benefits of different corporate structures and state filings.  She also assisted us with implementing benefits for our company by finding a benefit provider as well as selecting the right coverage for our company.

Kim Robinson provided all our accounting and financial needs including the creation of the monthly management accounts. She was a great person to have in the company, very much part of the team. She is a very detailed and accurate accountant and at the same time a very positive person. If ever the opportunity arose, I would have no hesitation in employing her again.

Ken Moore, Former CEO

Anfield Inc.

We hired Kim right before we switched from QuickBooks online to NetSuite. With her guidance, we were able to make the right decisions and setup NetSuite in the most efficient way. In addition, she implemented a closing process for our accounting team, which enables us to get financials ready in a timely manner. We love her honest feedback and suggestions to make our accounting team more efficient. She understands our business!
