As part of our ongoing commitment to staff training and development and enhancing a culture of support, YPTC has long recognized the power of staff members to serve as mentors for each other. Our clients regularly are impressed by the fact that if an associate does not know the answer to a question, he or she has a team of scores of fellow staff members eager to provide guidance and solutions.


As a result, Your Part-Time Controller has issued a Mentor of the Year Award since 2008. These awards recognize staff’s dedication to helping each other which, in turn, makes them better accountants and provides better support for our clients.


At our annual staff awards meeting in December, the 2017 Mentor of the Year Award went to Angela Coaxum, whose advice, consultation and guidance were seen as an important resource for staff and clients alike.


Other nominees for the 2017 award were:

  • Liane Decker
  • Rachel DeMatteo
  • Robert Drennen
  • Helen Fox
  • Betsy Rampulla
  • Bill Schwab
  • Hoon Short
  • Alan Stack
  • Linda White-Ballou
  • Sally Yu


We salute all of these exceptional staff members. The sheer number of nominees alone is testimony to the support all YPTC people provide to each other.
