Meet April Ann Santiago! A Certified Public Accountant from our Manila Team working under the supervision of our Financial Foreman Joshua Gloede.
Finishing her Bachelor’s in 2009, April continued to hone her technical skills and pursued further studies in her post-graduate years. Attaining her CPA in 2010 followed by her LOMA in late 2011. It was all during this time that April had begun her fledging steps within the industry, working in her first accounting position as supervisor for an insurance and advisory firm.
Following her position at Cooperative Insurance Systems, April moved on to work at LG Electronics, Philippines branch where she would remain for the next 3 years as their Corporate Planning and Accounting Officer. By early 2015, April took a much-deserved break- considering that she had been dedicating her time to continue studying and working non-stop since her graduation.
During May 2015, April returned back to work, this time as a Finance & Controlling Specialist for Holcim Service Centre for two years before becoming Parex Group’s Chief Accountant mid-2017; where she stayed for another 7 months. Leaving Parex in February 2018 in preparation for her wedding, April took some time to think about her own aspirations and goals. Determined to seek a more manageable work-life balance, April’s next step was to find a career that would allow her this balance and stumbled across Frontline who then introduced her to Accodex Partners. By March 2018, April began her Accodex career as an accountant for our Financial Foreman. Working closely with Joshua, April will be a valuable team member who will no doubt help to further enhance the service offering that Accodex Partners prides ourselves on.
With more time to focus on herself, April spends much of it channeling her love of nature through her inherited green thumb, tending to her backyard farm and pet ducks. While still new to the Accodex Family, April hopes to one day use her experiences with small business and create one of her own.
Now with a job that provides her with the flexibility to not only balance her work and personal life, April is looking forward to applying her knowledge, skills and experience within the industry to contribute towards Accodex’s mission.
