Colebrook Financial Company, a nationwide lender well-known within the vacation ownership resort industry, recently announced the addition to their team of Melinda Smith Miramant as Chief Financial Officer.
After earning a degree in accounting from the University of Rhode Island, Miramant earned her stripes at PricewaterhouseCoopers before joining an independent accounting firm located near Colebrook’s headquarters in Middletown, CT, where she eventually became Senior Manager. Miramant explains her preference for working with the independent, more personalized firm of Mahoney and Sabol after her time spent at PwC. “I got much more involved with our clients,” she said. “They needed help in many areas and needed our solutions. I spend a lot of time with the CFOs and the bookkeepers and we provide service, not just financial statements and tax returns.”
One of her clients was Colebrook Financial Company, which has become one of the major lenders in the timeshare/vacation ownership since its inception in 1993. She wasn’t looking for a job when Colebrook approached her, but eventually accepted their offer. “I know the group, I’ve seen the great office atmosphere, and I’m looking forward to learning something new,” she said.
“We’re confident that Melinda’s accounting knowledge, work ethic, and interpersonal skills make her an excellent fit for the company,” says Colebrook Partner Bill Ryczek.
