Padgett Business Services has announced that Amanda Aguillard has joined the company as the new chief operating officer (COO).
In her new role she will be responsible for identifying and incorporating the latest cloud technologies into Padgett’s operating model and focusing on developing and facilitating the necessary training to ensure these platforms and tools are successfully implemented by Padgett firms.
Her experience spans across both large and national accounting firms, as well as founding and managing her own small business, Accounting Salon.
Aguillard said: “One of the things that most intrigued me about joining the Padgett team is the fact that we have the resources of a large, national brand, but we’re also this network of small, local practices with deep connections to their own individual communities.
“Because of Covid-19, many of our clients have been forced to adopt technology in some form or fashion. That gives us the opportunity to take advantage of these resources to better equip our offices to serve these clients during a time of rapid change.”
Jeff Phillips, CEO, Padgett, added: “There’s no doubt that Amanda is going to be a great addition to the Padgett corporate team, and her expansive experience and extensive expertise will enable us to grow smarter and adapt faster.
“At Padgett, we want to be at the forefront of innovation, helping to spur change that empowers our offices and helps their customers. The pandemic forced us to adapt, and we’ve learned a lot in the past year. Amanda is the right person to take those learnings and propel us to the next level with regard to customer service and cutting-edge technology.”
