After spending the first six years of her career working in accounting firms, providing tax, financial reporting and planning services to clients across a range of industries, Erin Parker joined IFM to contribute meaningfully and make a real difference.
“I’ve grown professionally as IFM has grown in size and scale and I’ve been given the opportunity to financially control the IFM global corporate group. Our continual expansion has enabled me to focus on complex areas of Finance such as foreign exchange, hedging, international tax, transfer pricing, global consolidations, complex regulations and financial reporting standards across the world.
“Over the last two years, I’ve also been given the opportunity to study my Executive MBA at Melbourne Business School (MBS) which I’ve recently completed with first class honours. Through this program I’ve learnt alongside other executives from many different industries, and have gained extensive knowledge from their experience in addition to the formal subjects,” says Erin.
Joining IFM in 2008 to support the workload and complexity that was being generated during a period of immense global growth, Erin was promoted into a larger role and with an expanded team to oversee financial responsibility for IFM’s parent company Industry Super Holdings and the growing number of IFM foreign subsidiaries.
Now as the Director Corporate Finance, Erin works across the entire business, focussing on controls, processes and system automations that support IFM’s further growth aspirations.
