New GPCSD Director of Finance: Nicole Macmullin
I am pleased to announce that Nicole Macmullin will become the new Director of Finance for Grande Prairie and District Catholic Schools.
A self-motivated and driven individual, Nicole works hard to constantly develop and refine her skills. In 2011, she got her start as an accounting technician at Tremblay and Associates. During her six years at Tremblay’s she learned the ropes by: preparing corporate financial statements, taxes returns, reconcile GST and payroll accounts, file GST, preparing T4's and T5's and personal tax returns.
She received her Bachelor of Commerce from Athabasca University in April 2017.
Nicole was hired on earlier this year as the GPCSD’s Finance Officer and was instrumental in this year’s annual audit. She insured the documents were prepared according to Alberta Educations Requirements and Standards, accurately reflecting revenue and expenditures. Nicole is married to Peter and they have two-year-old twins named Ainslie and Pete. In her free time, she enjoys snowboarding and shopping. As a working mom, Nicole knows the importance of being organized and tight deadlines.
“It’s an honour to be selected as the new Director of Finance for the district. When I originally joined on as the Finance Officer, I saw it as an opportunity to challenge myself in my career. Now I’m the new Director, which presents even more amazing opportunities and challenges,” said Nicole Macmullin.
“Nicole brings a lot to the table, her drive and professionalism are extraordinary. She embodies all of the skills and characteristics we are searching for in a Director of Finance,” Superintendent of Schools, Karl Germann.
We welcome Nicole to the GPCSD CEC team and are looking forward to her taking on the role this week as our Director of Finance. The search for a new accountant will commence on November 15.
