Meet Gail Wang
Gail was brought into Caspers Company as an assistant controller in our accounting department in 2015. Before coming to Caspers, she was a senior manager for a regional public accounting firm, Cherry Bekaert LLP. At her previous job there, she was responsible for scheduling engagements, teaching firm-wide trainings, planning and reviewing audit work performed by her teams, consulting with owners and executives of companies in just about every industry except healthcare. Most importantly, she was responsible for auditing the Caspers Company accounts for nine years. Vice President, CFO Chuck Peterson and Vice President, Controller Linda Edwards lured her away from that firm in 2015. They asked her if she wanted to be a part of the Caspers team, and Gail says, “I’m thankful every day for that.”
Gail said she feels her role the past couple of years has been to pretty much be a sponge, soaking up as much information as she can from Chuck, Linda and the rest of the accounting team. As assistant controller, I am responsible for the accounting department which processes invoices, payroll, captures sales data, manages fleet records, bills and collects from customers on the CSC side, and provides support to operations on a daily basis. At the beginning of each month, they pull together financial statements for all of the Casper entities within five business days which enables operations to see monthly results and make adjustments in a timely manner. While she is doing a lot of number crunching, she is also helping evaluate our processes to see where we can improve or become more efficient, much like operations is doing in our restaurants.
Gail is originally from Hollywood, Florida. She moved here in 2000 for school. She has a Bachelor’s degree in accounting from USF and her CPA license. She is married to husband, Jeremy, whom she met in 2010. They have one little man together, Wyatt, who is two years old, and she thinks he’s beyond awesome! Gail says some of her hobbies and things she does for fun are, “Hanging with my little man, rolling my eyes at the ridiculous but funny things Jeremy says, and pretty much anything competitive like pool, darts, and any sports.”
When asked what she was looking forward to most about working at Caspers, Gail said, “Being part of a family-oriented business that is successful and ever improving/growing. I’m blown away by how many years everyone has been here; it’s very rare and special.”
