Meet the team: Fast Five with Elena Gildina, CFO Advisory

At Dexterous, we empower people to grow their business. We do this by operating as a complete finance department with our tailored support suiting the businesses current and future needs.

Here, you can meet Elena, one of our CFOs who has a passion for helping businesses navigate challenges encountered at all stages of their journey. As a CFO she focuses on optimising commercial outcomes, managing risk and helping businesses achieve their goals.

What do you do?

I provide CFO services to small and medium businesses. This includes business planning and analysis and working with the leadership teams to optimise business operations and financial performance.

What are your qualifications? Do you have an area of speciality?

Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Information Systems) from UNSW, Chartered Accountant. I specialise in all aspects of strategic CFO Advisory, board and management reporting and particularly enjoy working with growth focussed businesses.

Tell us what your #1 tip is for small or medium businesses?

A good accountant is worth their weight in gold! Also, accounting is not an area to cut corners on. The investment will pay for itself many times over in multitude of ways and not investing in the right processes and advise can cost you more in the long run.

What do you love about your job at Dexterous?

Flexibility, freedom and great people. It’s fun coming to work!

What’s the last new skill you learnt?

I am nearing the end of a major house renovation and am now adept at painting, assembling furniture, dating houses based on their leadlight window and ceiling designs and a greater patience having to manage protracted logistical challenges which resulted in receiving orders 10 months post order date.
