RINA Accountants & Advisors Bolsters Its Advisory Services Practice with the Appointment of Darcy Illg as Managing Director
Northern California – Accounting, Advisory and Wealth Management firm RINA Accountants & Advisors has continued the expansion of its Advisory practice with the hiring of industry veteran Darcy Illg.
In her new role Darcy will be involved in all aspects of the Advisory practice, which will focus on the accounting, financial, and strategic operational needs of RINA’s clients. The practice includes the newly launched Client Accounting Services (CAS), where RINA is committed to support its clients’ success through short-term or ongoing accounting support or guidance across accounting functions.
Darcy has significant experience leading Finance and Business Operations within global high-growth services companies in roles ranging from Operations Manager to Chief Financial Officer (CFO). In addition, she earned an MBA from UC Berkeley Haas School of Business and is a Certified Management Consultant (CMA). She also holds a Certificate in International Financial Reporting (CertIFR) from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, and has qualified for the Certified Blockchain Business Foundations (CBBF) accreditation.
"With her extensive background in providing Advisory services, Darcy will play an integral role in growing the Advisory side of RINA’s accounting practice," said Tom Neff, Managing Partner at RINA. “We are honored to welcome Darcy to our team, and we are confident that she will be a strong leader in bringing our clients the personalized expert services on which RINA prides itself.”
A prior President, CFO, and Treasurer of the Financial Women of San Francisco (FWSF), Darcy is committed to growing diversity in Finance and Accounting industries and functions. She is also a frequent industry speaker and an appointed Lecturer at UC Berkeley Haas School of Business. Darcy is also a recurring guest Lecturer at UC Berkeley, bringing her popular “Budgeting and Forecasting in the Real World” seminar to graduate students each semester.
Darcy lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, two distance-learning college-aged daughters, and cats who enjoy demanding attention during Zoom meetings. Her favorite activity (after playing with numbers in spreadsheets) is to sit down with good food, drink, and friends (socially distanced, of course) to share stories, ideas, and visions for the future.
