Meet Your Team
Michael Haight CPA, CGA
President and CFO
Michael began his accounting career at the age of six, where he would count and track (even making charts and putting them on his wall) everything from pennies (back when there was such a thing) to running distances and times, to baseballs hit and fielding percentage.
His love for numbers continued to grow by watching his favourite character on TV, Michael P Keaton on Family Ties. Michael completed his CGA Designation in 2006 and has experience in Agriculture, Food Production, Not-for-Profit (Housing), Government, Transportation, and Manufacturing. Throughout his career, he has taken the lead on the establishment of new controls and processes and effectively stream-lined internal processes to reduce month-end closing and reporting.
He has accomplished and been part of the setup and implementation of multiple major software conversions and adapts quickly to the use of new software. He’s come a long way from counting his pennies, having been responsible for budgets upwards of $256M. When he’s not working, Michael enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children…and don’t get him started talking about his fantasy baseball keeper league!
Chantel spent a number of years raising her three children as a stay-at-home mom before entering the work force in 2007, where she aced an interview with Michael! With her task driven personality and willingness to take on any challenge, she successfully contributes a high degree of accuracy in processing financial transactions.
Chantel joined Finatics at its inception and plays a key role in the day-to-day accounting for our clients, including accounts receivable, accounts payable, inventory management, expense reports, bank and account reconciliations and month-end and year-end processing.
Chantel has accounting experience in Transportation, Agriculture and Food Production and is willing to do whatever task is thrown her way. Aside from work she likes to spend time out at the lake and eating burgers topped with…she’ll gladly tell you if you ask!
Christopher comes to Finatics after spending countless days toiling in the Banking and Insurance industries (don’t hold it against him) and most recently running the financial operations of his family’s butcher shop.
Christopher works remotely for Finatics and we knew it was a perfect fit as Finatics is based near Winnipeg, MB and Christopher lives near Windsor, ON and the first three letters of each city are WIN and he always brings a winning attitude to work everyday!
Christopher is a key member of the team, providing accounts receivable, accounts payable, inventory management, debt management, bank and account reconciliation, month-end and year-end processes and reporting.
Christopher is a CPA candidate nearing the completion of his designation. When he isn’t studying he is spinning tunes on one of his turntables or reading a scary Stephen King book…don’t ask him about The Long Walk!
