CFO and Vice President of Finance and Human Resources Ruth Forbes said, “Shernelle’s promotion comes as no surprise to her colleagues or the Company. We will continue to support and encourage her growth and development and anticipate great achievements in her new role as Manager. On behalf of the entire FortisTCI family, I extend compliments to her on this milestone.”
Shernelle joined FortisTCI on August 2, 2011, under the Company’s Accounting Apprentice Program, which gives individuals the opportunity to obtain professional certification in the accounting discipline while gaining valuable hands-on experience. From the onset, Shernelle exhibited strong work ethic, dedication and drive. Through her contribution, she quickly became a valuable member of the Financial Services team. Shernelle, who worked her way through the ranks, most recently carried the title of Supervisor of Financial Services. In her new role as Manager of Financial Services, she will be accountable for company-wide accounting and financial reporting functions, including Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Payroll, General Ledger, Inventory and Cash Management.
Shernelle, who is quite the family oriented lady, credits her husband, Brook, with providing constant support and encouragement while she worked to achieve these personal and professional goals. Shernelle holds a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Finance and Accounting and was awarded her Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) certification in 2014.
