Gwen Giralamo is the new Finance Manager. She received her CPA in 1983 and has been an accountant for over 35 years.
Gwen grew up in Chicago on the northwest side of the city attending Catholic grade school and high school. She has an A.A business degree from Wilbur Wright JC and a B.S. accounting degree from DePaul University. Her first professional position out of college was typical for an accounting graduate – an auditor with Deloitte.
Gwen’s main hobby is equestrian related – riding, competing, trail riding. She has a horse at a barn in Hawthorn Woods and rides several days a week. She also has another horse – retired – living happily on a farm in South Carolina. She was an avid runner years ago – and ran one marathon – but now just runs (she says “jogs”) for exercise and still enters the occasional 5k runs in the area.
