Ambassador – Janet Haag

Business – Kemper CPA Group, LLP

Tell us about your business and what you do.

I have been a Certified Public Accountant for most of my working career. I began my career working at Kemper CPA Group, LLP in Washington, Indiana. After several years there, I went to work as a Controller for a business that operates convenience stores, restaurants and land management. I later become the CFO and finished as the V.P. of Retail Operations. It was a long and rewarding career, but I was ready to go back into public accounting. My first instinct was to go back to Kemper CPA Group. Due to the need of a CPA with management skills in the Terre Haute office, it was a natural fit for both of us.

I prepare personal and business tax returns, compiled financial statements and reviewed financial statements. I am the Virtual CFO for many of my clients by offering accounting assistance and financial oversight. The “virtual” just means that I am not your full-time employee. I work when and where I am needed. Small companies can benefit from a Virtual Chief Financial Officer by filling the role of giving them a level of financial management expertise that they are not prepared to hire on a full time basis.

Why do you serve as an Ambassador?

When I became involved with the Chamber, I was new to Terre Haute. This was a great natural extension for me as it was a way to get more involved in the community and grow my passion, helping businesses to grow and prosper.

Thank you Janet for serving as an Ambassador through your commitment and dedication to the Chamber!
