Dear Ms. Smith:

I am an accomplished accountant with advanced knowledge in administering financial information systems and 3+ years of experience directing annual budget processes. I would like to bring my collective experience and success to the financial controller position you are currently advertising, specifically contributing the following to Western New York Budgeting Agency:

  • Proficiency in administering accounts payable/receivable operations, bank statement reconciliations, and general ledger management.
  • Expertise at preparing quarterly forecasts, performing monthly closings, and conducting cash flow analyses, resulting in increased operational efficiency.
  • Aptitude for administering company ledgers and accounting procedures, ensuring continued compliance to company, state, and IFRS standards.

After 2 years of experience in payroll, auditing, and accounts payable/receivable operations for a regional construction firm, I was hired as an accountant for an international financing company where I designed and implemented internal auditing procedures that reduced response time to external audit inquiries. In this capacity, I also successfully led the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics AX software, which ultimately increased the efficiency of HR and management processes and reduced annual operations costs by over 10%. With my extensive experience in accounting and my expertise revamping financial information systems, I believe I would serve well in the role of financial controller for Western New York Budgeting Agency.

I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my finance and management experience at your earliest convenience. I may be reached at 555.555.5555 or via email at Thank you for your time and consideration.

Frank Sullivan
