Annette Balgord, CGA, Principal

Annette formed Balgord Software Solutions, the parent company of Affinity NFP, in 1993. Previously, she held operations management and controller positions in Canada and the United States. She introduced each company to its first computerized accounting and operations management system. One of her first projects was the development of an inventory control and sales order system for an industrial distribution company.

Client satisfaction is Annette’s number one priority. “We want our clients to consider us a part of their team,” emphasizes Annette. “Our success is dependent on their success, and when that happens we all win.” Under Annette’s leadership, the company has attained Sage Software’s elite President Circle status three times and was Accpac’s Canadian Business Partner of the Year in 2002.

Annette is passionate about helping people use technology to enrich their personal and professional lives. As a member of the Information Technology Alliance, Project Management Institute and Association of Fundraising Professionals, she enjoys sharing her enthusiasm with others in her community and related industries. In 1997 Annette received her CGA (Certified General Accountant) designation and is also a proud member of the Sage Leadership Academy Alumni Association.

In the little free time she has, Annette enjoys yoga, a nice long hike, and a great book.
