LANCASTER, PA (July 28 2020) – RKL LLP today announced that it has welcomed Melissa R. Osika, CPA, to its growing Financial Management Solutions (FMS) Practice. The firm has seen a steady increase in demand for outsourced accounting and financial management services since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, as more organizations recognize the need for a cloud-based financial processing and reporting solution that allows them to work smarter and perform better.
“Through Financial Management Solutions, we put the right processes, talent and technology in place to help owners and executives shift their focus from everyday tasks to growth and opportunity,” noted Bethany Novis, Partner and Leader of RKL’s Business Consulting Services Group. “We’re proud to welcome Melissa Osika to the FMS practice to help us deliver streamlined financial management and reporting to more organizations.”
RKL has long provided outsourced and virtual accounting services on an interim or permanent basis, but the firm formalized the FMS practice in September 2019 as part of the launch of RKL Next, a suite of solutions to challenges associated with growth and change. Since then, RKL has seen a high level of demand for FMS services, which align best-in-class technology options with a client’s specified level of support, from day-to-day transactional processing to fully outsourced management.
Osika joins an FMS team that delivers clients reliable metrics and better insights into financial performance for improved decision-making. FMS serves clients across the U.S., ranging from start-ups to large enterprises, with a focus on the professional services, home healthcare, retail, construction and real estate development industries. Osika previously held accounting and finance roles in the healthcare industry.
Throughout her nearly two-decade career in accounting, Osika gained considerable experience in internal audit and risk management. This specialized focus on controls and risk management aligns with another benefit of FMS – the confidence that comes from using secure, best-in-class technology and the assurance of dedicated, professional financial management.
Osika is a Certified Public Accountant in Pennsylvania, and she earned her B.S. in Business Administration with an Accounting Concentration from Millersville University. Osika resides in Manheim Township with her husband and their two children.
