What I Like About Pace Harmon

“Working side by side with fellow Pace Harmonites has been professionally and personally enriching. The access to seasoned practitioners, their industry knowledge, and their professional experiences has provided unique viewpoints on how to tackle engagements. Outside of engagements, everyone’s willingness to contribute to the firm through different practice operations has been motivational, and serves as encouragement to continuously expand my role in the firm."

The Kind of Work I Do

"While each project presents new challenges, my work typically involves data analysis, financial forecasting, asset management, and vendor management. In my latest engagement, I performed a financial and contractual analysis of an Enterprise Licensing Agreement (ELA). In parallel work streams, I also helped facilitate the removal and replacement of obsolete compute and storage systems from the environment, and supported the implementation of a new backup platform, consolidating various, ineffective backup solutions."
