Veritae was founded by Sally Mainquist and Kris Larson, seasoned corporate executives who have partnered in serving the accounting & finance staffing industry for the past 12 years. Both CPAs, their mission is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of their accounting and finance peers. This includes clients and consultants, collectively Veritae’s partners.
Veritae offers interim accounting & finance leadership, providing organizations with interim CFOs, Controllers and Project Executives. “Clients utilize Veritae consultants to bridge resource and knowledge gaps in executive level project and financial leadership roles, allowing the organization time for a thoughtful hire or the opportunity to balance work-load among the executive team. Consultants, in turn, enjoy a quality lifestyle with flexible, challenging projects.”
Local support and good advice inspired the launch of Veritae in the St. Cloud market earlier this year. Mainquist and Larson’s passion for putting employees first, treating clients especially well, and giving more to others prompted them to make a career change in 2013, allowing them flexibility to be different and adopt business philosophies more closely aligned with their values. Giving is a significant part of their culture: “I’m just helping out my friends and every now and again I get paid”, Mainquist says!
Even while ensuring balance in their own lives, community involvement is at an all-time high. Mainquist sits on the Board for Center for Ethical Businesses, Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota and Financial Executives International. Larson continues her support of W.I.N.G.S. for Widows, a service she founded to provide support to young widows in need of financial advice, and is a recent addition to the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota’s Corporate Sponsorship Committee for The Stir.
Mainquist and Larson have received numerous accolades recognizing their dedication and success: “Top Woman in Finance - Circle of Excellence” - Finance and Commerce; “Business & Industry Award”- MN Society of CPAs; “Women in Business - Women to Watch” - Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal; “40 Minnesotans on the Move” - Finance and Commerce; “Women of Achievement” - National Associate of Woman Owned Business Owners and others.
Veritae is the Latin derivative of the word “truth” which directly speaks to their business philosophy. Veritae offers a “values-based culture in which we all share. One centered on high integrity and trust.” They earn loyalty through building authentic relationships, treating people exceptionally well and focusing on the sustainability of their profession.
