The Club Controller


I had the pleasure of working with Terri McCabe for almost 5 years. Regardless of which
position, CPA, Controller, CFO, Ms. McCabe will provide professional accounting results. 
Team player, knowledgeable, organized dependable, cool calm and collected.

Terri was the chosen candidate for the new CFO position at Naples’ Tuscany Golf Club,
when WCI sold the Club and Community to an international investment company making
their debut in the US. She demonstrated a calm, professional poise under the very
challenging circumstance of establishing the new owner’s accounting policies and
procedures and interfacing between an existing club operation and a new investment
company. It takes a tremendous reservoir of experience to step into a transitional role
and successfully establish a new Accounting Department from the ground up.
She is able to see and steer toward the big picture and yet function quite comfortably
with the detail transaction, a unique personality indeed. I would recommend Terri with
confidence to you for the largest of projects as well as the smallest of tasks.

I had the pleasure of hiring Terri as Controller at Audubon Country Club. In short order,
she was able to provide me with balanced and meaningful reports that helped the team
to better manage the club. Her can-do attitude, pleasant and outgoing personality,and knowledge and integrity as a C.P.A. were a definite asset to the Club. Terri handled all
projects with great ease and interactedvery well with our members and Board. I highly recommend her for any accounting needs your business may have.

As Treasurer and on the Board of Directors of Audubon Country Club, I have had the
opportunity to work closely with Terri McCabe.

Terri was instrumental in executing a significant improvement in the accuracy and reliability
of the Club’s financial records. We found Terri to be very conscientious and technically
proficient in the performance of her duties. Her detailed and methodical approach to
resolving many of the accounting issues she found resulted in a much more robust set of financial records and a better framework for analyzing the club’s financial performance.

Based on her work for Audubon, I would recommend her highly as she can provide accounting services to a broad spectrum of clients.

Terri was very helpful and adept in providing our club with financial reporting. I would
recommend her to any Club that is in need of an interim controller.

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Potential Clients,

I don't take putting my name on the line for a reference lightly, but it gives me great
honor to recommend Terri McCabe for the Accounting/CFO/Controller position at your organization.

Ms. McCabe reported directly to me at Gulf Harbour Yacht and Country Club, but it seemed
more like a partnership. Terri is a dedicated individual with deep spiritual guidance and sound judgment.

As a TEAM member, Terri McCabe was one of the best Accounting Professionals I  have
ever had the privilege of working with.  Terri's department worked well together, and they
were never one of my many worries.  I frequently would receive accolades from members
for her departmental leadership.

In addition to Terri's exceptional skills, what impressed me most about her was the
professional demeanor that she demonstrated in challenging circumstances as a temporary.  
She played a key role in guiding the staff and Finance Committee to recent successes,
and she would always be welcome back at Gulf Harbour.

In summary, I would recommend at a minimum that you take a few moments out of
your busy schedule to interview this fine professional.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at or call me on my private phone at (239) 290-5501.

I wish you many successes,

Lonnie Eberhard, CCM General Manager

Many thanks to you, Terri.  You came through for us at a time when it would have been
easy to have a hundred things slip through the cracks.  You did a great job.  Please let
me know if ever I can be of assistance to you in promoting your practice.

Thanks again, and stay in touch!

Best regards,

Bill Post -Treasurer – Gulf Harbour Yacht & Country Club


The professionalism and knowledge Terri McCabe brought to our Club was remarkable and
greatly appreciated.  We had gone through a conversion that was fraught with issues.
Terri was able to get all of the details ironed out, setting up a smooth operation allowing
us to move forward.  Terri was patient and efficient when working with staff and the
Treasurer of the club. I would highly recommend her to any Club requiring assistance.

To whom it may concern:

Stonebridge Country Club recently hired Terri McCabe to fill in for our Controller while she
was out on maternity leave. Terri's work complimented the talents of our team.  
Her experience and efficiency to close monthly financials while our Controller was gone
was performed in a timely and professional manner.

Stonebridge Country Club By utilizing her services and experience everything was completed as if our Controller was still here and we never missed a beat. I would highly recommend Terri,
so if you are considering her services and have any questions
I would be happy to assist in any way.

Terri McCabe was a lifesaver for me!  After just two weeks into my new position at Williams Island I needed a new CFO.  I was incredibly fortunate to find Terri who joined us and immediately focused the team on operating priorities and objectives.  Not only were we three months behind on our financial statements we were also in the middle of completing our annual audit.  Terri patiently and persistently lead the team through challenge after challenge until we were back on solid ground and graciously supported and continues to support our new CFO towards success.  I can’t speak highly enough about the professionalism and character Terri brings to the team even as an interim leader.  Terri was truly a lifesaver for us and I would recommend her highly as I doubt there could be a more challenging scenario than she handled for us.  Please feel free call me if you are considering her services.

Please allow me to share how pleased I am with your professional services.  During the time you spent with our Club over the course of April and May 2017, I was immensely impressed with your technical skill as well as your ability to prioritize which matters needed attention and assist with a broad range of tasks.

I was initially very concerned about the prospect of not having a controller for nearly two months, however after our first meeting and the subsequent days, I was re-assured, and ultimately my expectations were exceeded with how smoothly the interim time passed. Given the ease with which you were able to navigate our finances during a very busy period as well as give the Board of Directors a straight-forward and meaningful analysis of our cash position, I imagine your abilities far exceed what we were able to glimpse over the course of eight weeks.

In addition to your evident skill and obvious experience, I appreciate your focus and ability to get to the essence of the task at hand.  I felt every hour billed was well prioritized and geared toward achieving the required objective. Thank you again for your professionalism and commitment to providing top level service.  I recommend you with enthusiasm, and will use you again in the future without a moment of hesitation.
