Her knowledge of the business’ financials help her and her team, working with company leaders, to establish robust and detailed reporting by service line.

Rebecca leads a team that is responsible for the financial reporting, budgeting, and forecasting for IRG Realty Advisors. She and her team work in conjunction with IRG Realty Advisors’ service line leaders to determine and achieve strategic goals that create efficiencies, opportunities and greater financial success for the company and clients. Her ability to leverage her understanding of the business’ financials at a granular level and communicate the “stories” the numbers tell in a higher level, initiative-based format is a discussion catalyst that supports discussions with the President, COO/CFO and service line leaders on initiative performance, future services growth, and adjustment to forecast.

Rebecca joined the company in 2004 as the Financial Manager overseeing the Property Accounting Division and was responsible for the accounting, accounts receivable and accounts payable functions for the clients as well as the accounting for the company. Company growth and the need for more robust accounting, budgeting and forecasting led Rebecca to change her focus
strictly to the support of IRG Realty Advisors. In 2013 she established robust and detailed reporting by service line, by client and region and also converted the financials to full GAAP Accounting.
