First, internal and external financial reporting including overseeing the monthly, quarterly and annual closing process and preparation of financial statements for all international operations and subsidiaries (including statutory statements and overseeing associated audits), explaining variances and maintaining an effective system of internal controls for these activities. Second, the Assistant Controller, International will also play an important role in planning, coordinating, managing and/or implementing a wide variety of financially-oriented international operations activities, including tax planning and compliance, intercompany arrangements plus leading or participating in the leadership of a variety of other projects associated with the expansion of BRG’s international operations.
