Meet the Team – Kevin Jiang
- What is your role and why is it important to the company?
As an accountant at Managing Matters, I add value to the organization by maintaining accounting records of client associations to ensure records accurately represent the operations. This includes keeping track of revenue and expenses, collecting accounts receivable, making timely payments to vendors and so on. At the end of each quarter or month, I prepare relevant and reliable financial information to board members to assist with their decision making.
- What’s your favourite part about your job?
My favourite parts of the job are the work environment, the people that I work with and the amazing clients. I enjoy attending the numerous and frequent team building activities like bi-weekly wine parties, events and committee meetings. This week we’re going bowling! At these activities, I get to bond with my incredibly skilled and talented colleagues. I enjoy working with wonderful MM clients and learning more about their associations.
- Fun fact about yourself
A fun fact about myself is that I’m learning to play piano. I am currently working toward my CPA designation and have passed my core 1 exam.
- What do you do to stay active? How do you unwind after a long day? How do you find time to escape the city?
When the weather is great, I like to play basketball with friends or stroll in the park to relax in the green landscape. I have fun watching movies and television shows. My favourite genres are action, comedy, mystery, and science fiction. Two television shows I’m watching weekly are Game of Thrones and The Strain.
- Any work tips to share?
I start my workday by responding to emails followed by checking bank accounts and reading through recently posted transaction since the previous day. This keeps me updated for reconciliation. To stay organized, I use Post-It notes and Outlook calendar. I create a schedule and follow through to ensure deadlines are met.
