BIOGRAPHY

accodex2018-partner-bio-icon-02

Meet April Ann Santiago! A Certified Public Accountant from our Manila Team working with our Financial Foreman, Joshua Gloede.

 

After completing her Bachelor’s in 2009, April continued to hone her technical skills and pursued further studies in her post-graduate years, during which she attained her CPA and LOMA qualifications. It was all during this time that April took her first steps within the industry, working in her first accounting position as a supervisor for Cooperative Insurance systems, an insurance and advisory firm.

 

April then 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. In early 2015, April took a much-deserved break- considering that she had been dedicating all her time to studying and working non-stop since her graduation.

 

In May 2015, April returned to work, this time as a Finance & Controlling Specialist for Holcim Service Centre for two years before becoming Parex Group’s Chief Accountant in mid-2017. 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. In March 2018, April began her Accodex career as an accountant for our Financial Foreman.

 

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 experience 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.
