Elaine Oaks Earle CPA
Chief Financial Officer
Elaine Earle has actively worked as a Certified Public Accountant for 15 years, obtaining her license in Arizona in 1997 after studying at the University of Arizona where she obtained a Bachelors degree in Accounting.
In 1997, Elaine started her career at KPMG, a “Big 4” accounting firm and immediately was immersed in performing financial audits for a diverse set of clients, including many publicly held clients. Elaine had a specialty in insurance clients and took this specialty overseas to work as a U.S. GAAP specialist for international insurance companies who desired to list on the U.S. exchanges. During this exciting time, Elaine lived in London, Sydney and Zurich and worked in these financial centers for large multi-national clients of KPMG. Elaine’s seven year career at KPMG spanned financial audits, initial public offerings, management consulting, mergers and acquisitions, SEC reporting, Sarbanes Oxley compliance and systems and technology integration.
In 2003, Elaine accepted a position in private industry with Financial Pacific Insurance Group (FPIG) in northern California as their Assistant Vice President and Controller. Elaine played an integral part in the merger of FPIG, which was venture capital owned, and Mercer Insurance Group, a publicly held company. Once this merger was completed, Elaine assumed the lead for the company’s Sarbanes Oxley compliance and oversaw all aspects of SEC compliance.
After the birth of her twin boys, Elaine took a short break from public and private practice to raise her sons but kept up with markets and the accounting practice. Soon after, in 2012, Elaine joined the ROX Group as their Chief Financial Officer. At ROX, Elaine serves in a multi-faceted capacity overseeing mergers and acquisitions, capital and cash management and all aspects of financial and tax reporting.
