Technical accounting expert from leading independent audit, tax and advisory firm will join
the VL team to share exclusive insights on lease accounting compliance
Woodbridge, NJ – June 14, 2022 — Visual Lease, the #1 lease optimization software provider, today announced that Lisa Kaestle, Director, Accounting Advisory Services at Grant Thornton, will join its lease accounting experts to co-present two upcoming ASC 842 Planning Sessions. These monthly, virtual events, which Visual Lease has offered since 2021, are designed to help public and private companies understand how to easily achieve and sustain compliance with lease accounting standard ASC 842.
“We are committed to being more than just a technology solution,” said Visual Lease’s founder and CEO, Marc Betesh. “In addition to continuously elevating our software’s capabilities, we are always working to expand our Alliance Partner network to bring increased value to our shared customers. Simultaneously, we offer a regular cadence of complementary, virtual events to provide public and private companies, as well as government entities with the intel they need to master lease accounting compliance. In welcoming Grant Thornton to co-present our upcoming ASC 842 Planning Sessions, we’re merging insights of our Alliance Partner network with our in-house experts to deliver a new level of knowledge-sharing.”
Visual Lease’s monthly ASC 842 Planning Sessions provide attendees with expert tips and industry best practices to accelerate and maintain compliance with ASC 842. Visual Lease and Grant Thornton have partnered together for over 5 years, working to help their shared customers achieve confident lease accounting compliance. To support this ongoing effort, Kaestle will join Joe Fitzgerald, SVP of Lease Market Strategy at Visual Lease, and Matthew Watson, Director of Implementation Services at Visual Lease, for the next two sessions: July 26th and August 24th.
“I’m looking forward to co-presenting these upcoming sessions with the Visual Lease team,” said Kaestle. “At Grant Thornton, we have a very similar mission, which is to help businesses across all industries make stronger financial decisions. Today, many companies do not yet realize how much risk and opportunity are associated with their leases – and that’s just one of the important points we’ll cover in the ASC 842 Planning Sessions.”
