Chief Accounting Officer
For Michelle Vilms, it’s not just about the numbers. It’s about the transformative effect those numbers can have on a business when they’re organized and simplified. In the 1990s, Michelle was part of the team that helped grow office supplies store Staples from a chain of 100 retail stores to a $15 billion company as director of marketing and finance. But after 11 years, she made the tough decision to leave and pursue her calling as a financial consultant. Vilms Consulting naturally grew out of that work. Today, she marries the newest technologies with a tried-and-true human approach to accounting. Today, Vilms Consulting provides services in accounting, advisory, and training that support business growth.
