Luba Kamenko holds a CPA, CGA designation and has 10 years of experience in the accounting field with progression through various accounting roles. She provides leadership on all accounting related matters, including strategic and financial planning, financial reporting, process design and improvement, and risk management. Prior to joining Chemistry Consulting Group in 2006, Luba worked at Grant Thornton LLP for six years as an Insolvency Administrator and later as Accounts Payable/IT support.
Luba is always looking for ways to work smarter and encourages her team to do what humans do best—innovate. Her favorite word is “Why”. Guided by logic which considers emotional response as much as empirical facts, she immediately looks for a solution when presented with an issue. She strives to have integrity, thought-out opinions and welcomes an informative debate. She is fascinated by people’s behavior and what motivates them in their professional, personal and lately, political choices.
Somewhat contrary to some people’s idea of an accountant, she is interested in design and fashion. Having grown up and spent her youth in Russia, she is bi-lingual (or non-lingual—the jury is still out) and loves to eat herring. She is a ‘foodie’ who enjoys entertaining on weekends, with an occasional pause for attending to her garden, playing ball with her dog, and home renovation or decoration projects.
