Bri always loved the basics around accounting but it was not until she got into the real world that she found out there is so much more to a particular field than what you learn in a book. She found it is beneficial to keep your eyes open for new opportunities and to take on a challenge even if you are not 100% sure you know what you are doing. That is how she felt in every new role and it has been the most fun and rewarding adventure.
Brianne Head graduated from A&M-Commerce in 2011 with a Bachelors in Accounting and MBA. She was a member of Beta Alpha Psi and at one of the meetings she was introduced to the CFO of OneSource Virtual (OSV). She had just graduated and was looking for a job and OSV was looking for a staff accountant so it was a perfect fit. She worked as a staff accountant for 2 years and realized she was not meant for corporate accounting. But working with OSV exposed her to a software called Workday that was very interesting to her. OSV is a service partner of Workday and was putting together a support team for the financial division. Based on Bri's background in accounting and her knowledge of Workday she transitioned to Application Management Services and started the support team. This allowed her to become certified in Workday Financials and opened even more doors. She stayed in this role for 2 years until a new opportunity came up. OSV was launching a new product line to automate Accounts Payable and Bri was selected to be part of the team developing the new product line and lead the team that enabled the service. This has been an amazing journey and taught Bri a lot about running shared services as well as software and process design and development. Over the last 5 years, the company has expanded the financial service offerings and she was recently promoted to Program Manager. Bri is now responsible for working with R&D to design future services as well as enhancing current products. She also manages the teams that enable their services and provides an escalation point for challenges during projects.
