Description

Do you want to work for a strong, publicly traded, fast-growing company? Do you want to grow and progress in a great work environment?

As the Accounts Receivable Manager, you will lead, coach, and develop the Accounts Receivable team and provide training and development to new hires. You will process credit applications for new customers and manage credit of existing customers, as well as bring improvements to the company’s accounts receivable function, including the reduction of average days outstanding and the minimization of bad debts. In addition, you will be responsible to prepare detailed analysis of customer aging at month-end and provide commentary to management as well as to prepare supporting schedules for month-end and perform balance sheet reconciliations as they relate to the A/R function.
