From the Heart of Utah: Morgan’s Journey to Bean Ninjas
Morgan grew up in the beautiful state of Utah and attended BYU, the second-ranked accounting program in the nation. After graduation, she hit the ground running, landing a CFO job at a small tech company right out of college.
“I loved working for a startup at the beginning of my career. I love the ownership and growth opportunities that startups provide,” Morgan says.
During her time as CFO, Morgan was instrumental in managing the company’s financials from start to finish, improving its performance, and positioning it for acquisition by a larger accounting firm.
“I created and maintained bookkeeping processes, managed cash flow and receivables, worked with banks for funding, and managed bank covenants,” she explains.
“I also generated reliable forecasts, automated important reports for management, and managed the internal data warehouse.”
From there, Morgan shifted her focus to consulting, where she helped mid-sized companies improve their financials and achieve their business objectives.
With her strong work ethic and expertise, Morgan quickly established herself as a top financial analyst, generating 4.3 times her cost in revenue and maintaining contract renewals with every client she worked with.
“I’m passionate about making an impact with the company and people I work with,” Morgan says. “I love learning new things and growing my career.”
Joining the Bean Ninjas Family
So, why did Morgan choose to join Bean Ninjas?
“I loved the opportunity to oversee a well-established, awesome team that are experts in the e-commerce industry while also using my past experience to improve project profitability and capacity efficiency,” Morgan says.
“And of course, being able to maintain my work-life balance while still having a ‘seat at the table’ was a big factor in my decision.”
But it wasn’t just the job that attracted Morgan to Bean Ninjas, she was also drawn to the company’s values and vision of providing freedom to eCommerce entrepreneurs.
“After meeting Wayne (Chief Operating Officer) and Michelle (Director of Cloud Accounting Services), it was clear that I’d be working for great people who have a vested interest in my career and would value my input while providing mentorship,” Morgan explains.
