Louise Hadlock, CPA

Louise is a seasoned CPA with diverse technical and leadership experience and skills in a wide range of accounting systems. She prepares tax documents and other financial reports for clients, and coordinates accounting systems for the firm.

Louise’s career has been in accounting from start-ups to liquidations, from cooperatives to regulated banks, from medical devices to concrete products. She has spent most of her career in manufacturing. With one fortune-500 exception, the manufacturing companies have been locally owned. Louise provided detailed summaries of period activity for internal management, and has covered all accounting department duties from audit preparation to taxes.

Louise particularly enjoyed the challenge of preparing to implement an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. She appreciated the team building aspects of designing and implementing the ERP, which is a shared database that supports multiple functions. Louise prides herself on the importance of consistent quality of deliverables, to both internal and external customers.

Louise is a graduate of Whitman College. She is certified in production and inventory management by APICS (American Production and Inventory Control Society). Louise has implementation experience with Oracle, BPCS and MAPICS and hands-on experience with Great Plains, SAMM and Exact JobBOSS software.

CPA talents run in the Hadlock family. Louise joined her daughter Sarah (Manager here at The Business Guides) and moved to Port Townsend after 15 years with a cohousing community in Seattle. Much of her free time is spent establishing her new garden. Louise’s hobbies include the piano, fiber arts, and travel.
