Meet Sarika Geer, ZenFi Network’s Senior Project Accountant. Sarika holds a BA in Entrepreneurship Management from Baruch College and brings 17 years of New York City construction industry experience to the company.
Sarika first wedged her foot in the door of the construction industry as a receptionist for a family-run insulation company that, like ZenFi Networks, had a hands-on attitude to getting things built. She worked her way up the ranks there by taking on additional responsibilities from performing certified payroll, processing accounts payables, customer billing, and eventually estimating projects.
Sarika leveraged this foundational understanding of both construction and accounting to help build several landmark NYC construction projects over the past decade. These included the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, Jet Blue’s Runways at JFK, and the Hudson Yards Platform.
Her Role With ZenFi Networks
Sarika joined ZenFi Networks as their Senior Project Accountant in 2018. Bridging the gap between Operations and Finance, she helps develop and execute the company’s construction project budgets. Sarika works directly with vendors on purchase order review and signoff.
With keen attention to detail, she keeps a steady eye on how projects are performing against budget and closes the feedback loop with the Sales team to be sure everyone is on the same page and continues to quote new work with confidence.
Outside of work, Sarika has been focusing on her fitness and raising her two beautiful children.
We’re proud to have her on our team. Thanks, Sarika!
