I've been in corporate finance since 1997 and consulting since 2011. My training in Board Rooms and Deal Rooms and my no-nonsense nature pair well with big, hairy challenges.


With her energy and diligence, she tackles anything that gets in our way and is committed to our success. It is an absolute pleasure to work with her.

ABOUT ME: Denice M. Sakakeeny

20180301_125508 (1).jpg

As founder and principal consultant of Denice Sakakeeny & Associates, I apply over 20 years of hands-on, down-and-dirty corporate finance experience to the everyday practice of solving business problems.

I got the start-up bug early, as a financial analyst with Advantage Schools (acquired by Mosaica) in Boston, MA. Sharing an office with the CFO in some Class C office space down by the Boston Garden, I knew then then that my degree in Sociology and African Politics from Brandeis University prepared me poorly for life as a start-up junkie.

Subsequently, I pursued a Master's Degree in Accounting at Suffolk University and went on to hold finance leadership positions at such venture-backed companies as Intronis (acquired by Barracuda), Ordermotion (acquired by NetSuite), and HubX (acquired by SynXis). At Aspen Technology (AZPN) I provided global finance leadership to the $65MM Professional Services business during a backbreaking period of de-listing and re-listing from the Nasdaq. How many Qs and Ks can you file in 18 months? 

I'm a native New Englander, currently residing in Brookline, Massachusetts. When I'm not working, I can be found at various ponds, rivers, and pools across the region cheering on my son's swimming or rowing teams.

 

Denice is someone you can count on.
