It is my pleasure to welcome Ellen Dempsey as our new accountant. We appreciate all that Ray Roberts has done over the past several months during this transition period, and he will continue to assist Ellen over the next couple of weeks. I am very excited about the level of accounting experience Ellen brings to our operation.
Ellen and her husband moved from Ohio to Mount Pleasant 4 years ago. They have 3 adult children, of which two live and work in Ohio, and one lives and works in Shenzen, China. She is a CPA with over 15+ years accounting experience. Ellen has worked in many different industries, as well as 7 years with a mid-size CPA firm. Ellen has worked with different size organizations, the largest of which was Wendy’s Corporation in Dublin, Ohio where she was the Controller for their Co-Op. Ellen impressed me in her interview with her special skillset in start-up companies. She enjoys the challenge of developing and implementing new processes and procedures, and she has already brought many new ideas to the table.
In her spare time, she enjoys cycling, trying out Charleston’s many wonderful restaurants, and she is currently learning to play golf. She said, “Thankfully my husband is very patient.” Ellen says that she is “so excited to be here at Dewees POA and looks forward to getting to know all of the property owners. The island is so beautiful and I’m grateful that I can come to work in these wonderful surroundings.”
I am sure you all will make her feel welcome on the island. You may contact her by email at email@example.com. She begins full-time next Monday.
