Our long-tenured and knowledgeable Controller Grace Maher has a favorite quote that was engraved on a plaque in her father’s office:
If you take care of your pennies. Your dollars will take care of themselves.
To Grace this sage advice is the foundation for her life, and it’s served her well both personally and professionally. She’s been a fixture here at BM&G for more than two decades. Before she joined us, she worked alongside Tom’s wife Bridget, who introduced Grace to the firm, knowing that her hard-working and determined colleague would make a great addition to the BM&G team.
Grace has seen BM&G evolve and grow in her two decades with us. She started with us part-time while pursuing her accounting degree at University of North Texas, and later, became our first and only accountant. Today she serves an important role as our Controller, managing our firm’s payroll, human resources and accounting functions – with her terrific team.
When she’s not working, Grace loves spending time with her family, including her husband Douglas their three children, and seven grandchildren who call her ‘Gigi.’ Her grandkids keep her on her toes, and she’s thankful that they all live in North Texas. When they’re not having sleepovers and spoiling their grandchildren, Grace and Douglas enjoy traveling with a group of high school and college friends.
Grace enjoys the family culture at BM&G and the priority we place on our own families, each other and our clients. We think that speaks to why she’s been with us more than 20 years!
