Every day we celebrate those that we call ‘joiners’ – those that have the courage to get on board a new start-up led by freshly minted entrepreneurs. The epic team members that took that risk with us are so close to our hearts.

As we graduate from start-up to scale up, we recognize that it is the ‘joiners’ amazingness that attracts the fantastic clients we are humbled to serve and allows us to go to market and grow with continued hiring success.

Our permanent team is growing super fast! We love the people that come on board as employees serving our Finance Leader, consulting, and AmplifyTech clients.

It is with great gratitude that we proudly share our latest hires with you. Please reach out to them as they begin the next part of an already exciting career on the Amplify team with us.

BOBY MENENTHIRAN

Our Controller services only launched in September and yet here we are welcoming another amazing CPA to our team!

It is a real honour for many of us to have the chance to work with Boby again.

Tara, Loren, Anto, and Jamie all know Boby from our credit union days. So with that kind of alumni, you can bet we are confident in the success we will see with the clients that have the opportunity to work with Boby!

Boby earned his designation and his initial accounting experience overseas in the UK.

He’s worked in the accounting offices of childcare, banking, payments and fintech.

He has strong financial reporting, full-cycle accounting, and operational accounting background that will support the CFOs that hire Amplify for Fractional Controller assistance.

At home, Boby has an active and busy home life that doesn’t include much sleep right now! He welcomed a new baby girl only a week before we welcomed him!

Congratulations Boby and family!

DANNY CHIARASTELLA

We are thrilled to welcome Danny Chiarastella to our epic team!

It’s awesome to have a new Finance Leader (CFO) joining us that is an exceptional example of enhancing communities, and that is just what Danny brings.

Born and raised in Calgary, and now raising his own family here, Danny contributes to his city and community through various levels of volunteer work.

Danny’s contribution to the network of Financial Executives International (FEI) is generous and impressive. We met him when Jamie joined FEI Calgary in 2020. Danny has served as the Calgary Chair for the past three years and has now moved on to support the National Board.

Most recently, Danny was with an EdTech company. Before that, he spent his career working in the oil and gas energy services sector and trained at BDO.

Danny is well respected and appreciated in the world of CPAs, CFAs, and MBAs that lean on FEI for their CPD and networking opportunities. He hit the ground running when he joined Amplified on a busy new client and looks forward to building more relationships with new clients soon.

When Danny isn’t working or volunteering, he spends time with his wife and two young daughters. He may be outnumbered at home but he says his girls keep him busy with hiking, biking, and basketball.

LYNN MACK MESON

We are thrilled to have the energy of a leader like Lynn on our team and we welcome Lynn Mack Meson to Amplify as a Finance Leader (CFO).

Fun fact: Lynn got Jamie her first (volunteer) board role and also worked with her at PwC in the early days. She also worked with Ryan at PwC and more recently at WestJet.

Hiring an alumni we’ve known that long is a great opportunity!

Lynn has spent several years working with small and medium businesses in a mid-sized CPA firm and the passion and muscle memory of working with growing owner-managed businesses is going to be a real asset.

In addition to professional services and airlines, Lynn has worked as a transformational finance leader in an industry-aligned with her passion of dance. Her NPO time in an industry struck incredibly hard by the pandemic has prepared her for the resilience and challenges of working with scale-ups.

Outside of work, Lynn is a proud mom and an avid skier and outdoor enthusiast.

She brings a new and much needed perspective and light to our epic team and we can’t wait to be part of her next journey.
