Bazdanes Focused on Middle Market Growth for Accounting Management Solutions

Outsourced Accounting and Finance Services Provider Continues to Add to Team

WALTHAM, MA and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 30, 2012) - Accounting Management Solutions, Inc. (AMS), the leading resource for outsourced accounting and financial management services in the Northeast, announced today that Cathy Bazdanes has joined the firm as director for the middle market practice. Bazdanes will build upon the firm's success in the middle market (companies with annual revenues of between $50 million and $1 billion), and will be servicing both the New England and New York metro regions.

"Middle market companies are outsourcing their accounting and financial services more than ever," said Jim Bourdon, AMS's founder and CEO. "Economic uncertainty, the escalating cost of employing full time staff and an increasing aversion to the commitment necessary for full-time hires makes outsourcing an ideal solution. Cathy's previous experience as a CFO gives her great perspective on our clients' needs. She'll play a key role as we build upon the middle market growth we are already seeing."

Prior to joining AMS, Bazdanes managed a team of professionals focused on client and business development, strategic planning and recruiting for the finance and accounting departments of leading New England organizations. Like many of the AMS team, she has previously held CFO and VP of finance positions. She was CFO and vice president, operations for Aureus Asset Management and Boston Capital Partners respectively. She also worked at Harvard Management Company.

"Middle market companies are stretched, some to breaking point, as they continue to try to do more with less," said Bazdanes. "Financial operations have been doing without for too long. Financial systems are overdue for overhaul or upgrade; policies and procedures are out-of-date; financial projects have been pushed off. But now this market is rousing and we've seen tremendous demand for our services."
