MaryBeth Cobb, Accounting Department Manager
…has called Arizona home since 2003. She grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and has spent almost her entire career in corporate and public accounting, working with a variety of both small and large businesses. MaryBeth began growing her business career working for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service while attending Portland State University. While still in college, she started her accounting career working for attorneys, and later a small manufacturer of woodworking tools. In her early career, MaryBeth also obtained her Certification in Management Accounting (CMA) and Certification in Financial Management (CFM) certificates. She attends 30 hours of professional training each year to make sure she maintains these hard-earned credentials.
With each position MaryBeth has held, she has added new skills to her personal inventory. This includes setting up and improving accounting systems and procedures, analytical and budgeting skills, as well as developing management skills that she still draws on to this day.
MaryBeth’s exposure to differently sized and structured industries has given her the experience she needs to know how to recognize a business’ potential opportunities and weaknesses. She uses this experience to help her clients improve their business’ performance. The areas of responsibility that MaryBeth is most passionate about is training clients to better utilize their accounting software (MaryBeth and a member of her team are both QB ProAdvisors) and how to understand and interpret the information found on financial statements and tax returns.
As PayTech’s Accounting Department Manager for the past 6 years, MaryBeth’s goal has always been to provide accurate, timely, and complete financial information to her clients. Her team of accounting specialists, as well as the tax department staff, focus on exceeding client expectations and anticipating changes in tax and accounting requirements to maximize client net worth. MaryBeth finds balance in her life by spending time with her 18 year-old daughter Madison and her dog (also known as her son) Jake. She enjoys most outdoor activities and likes to spend as much time as possible outside enjoying the beautiful Arizona weather.
