Janette Press, founder and principal of Cirrus Accounting, LLC, a ‘cloud-based’ accounting practice, helps retailers harness accounting technologies to scale and grow their businesses more efficiently and effectively.
Specifically she helps retailers establish a financial dashboard and Key Performance Indicators (KPI) that will keep you on track, budget and planning guidance, and purchasing and inventory controls.
Jan holds an MBA from Alvernia University and was an early adopter of Intuit accounting technologies. Based on personal experience supporting her husband’s small business, she learned the power of Quickbooks as a business tool, and became a QuickBooks Intuit Certified ProAdvisor in 2009. She followed that up by earning her CMA (• Certified Management Accountant ) to share her expertise more widely.
Like many small business owners, she embraced the Intuit marketing message that QuickBooks does the accounting for you. She quickly learned, however, that for many business owners understanding QuickBooks, let alone accounting, are daunting tasks needing more guidance and support than a tutorial or in-product help menu.
With Retail Rescue she provides QuickBooks training and support, out-sourced CFO services, bookkeeping, payroll and tax preparation to retail businesses.
Christopher P. Ramey
Chris Ramey’s affinity for retail began early in his life. He met his future wife in high school when they worked together at Kaufmann’s department store in Pittsburgh. After college, Ramey was hired by Macy’s for their highly regarded ‘Executive Management Training Program.’
Ramey opened his first retail store when he was 28. He grew it to a multimillion dollar enterprise and sold it by the time he turned 40. He accepted a buying position with a large retail cooperative. In less than a year he was named president of their new division, International Design Guild where he grew the organization to 95 showrooms. Home Furnishings News named International Design Guild the second largest home furnishings chain in the luxury segment. Ramey was also founder and president of Savvi Formalwear, a group of independent retailers that Ramey grew to over 400 retail stores.
Ramey is president of The Home Trust International, a member of National Speakers Association and has earned ‘Top 5% Leadership’ appellation from Gerson-Lehrman for his work with private equity firms investing in luxury, retail and home categories.
