Editor’s note: Each issue of the Influential Women enewsletter will feature a profile of one of the Business Journal’s reigning Top Women Owned Businesses finalists. The profile first appeared in the event program.
In addition to her financial expertise, Roxanne Dudicz has a pretty good grasp on work-life balance.
Rivertown Finance started from scratch in 2005. The financial services company now employs nine people.
But a closer look reveals Dudicz’s true mission.
“My most significant business achievement is twofold,” she said. “I am extremely proud of being able to help small business owners take their businesses to the next level, with the financial reporting tools and processes we’ve been able to provide. At the same time, I’m equally proud of growing a company from nothing to being able to employ eight other working women like myself who now find balance with their families and careers.
“My business is not only women owned, it is women run,” she said.
Dudicz said Rivertown Finance is a bookkeeping firm specializing in providing all-inclusive accounting support, from daily operational bookkeeping functions to forecasting and analysis.
More than 80 businesses
Rivertown currently works with more than 80 small to mid-size firms.
She is passionate about filling a niche in the community by providing cost-effective, flexible, quality services, alongside tax accounting firms with an untapped resource pool of working women.
“In addition, we are an integral part of the rising entrepreneurial spirit in Grand Rapids women,” she said.
A certified public accountant, Dudicz also is programming chair for the Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs and is responsible for executing monthly events that educate, lead and connect women entrepreneurs.
Rivertown Finance was a finalist for the 2013 Top Women Owned Business award in the $1.49 million and under revenue category.
Judges commented on the strength of her business, anticipating continued strong growth.
