I am CA Dhaval Paun, an Excel Enthusiastic since 2007. I help Global clients to automate their processes through Excel. Creating Tools in Excel and Dashboards for MIS is my key area of expertise.
Let me share with you my journey in Excel. In my first job (CA Articleship) in 2007 at a reputed CA Firm in Mumbai due to a lack of VBA knowledge, I was transferred to vouching tasks. I left my first job in just 3 days as I don't want to restrict my profile to basic admin tasks.Since then, one thing has stuck in my mind deeply Excel is the ultimate decider for one's career growth.
In my next job (CA Articleship) of 3 years, I was fortunate to work on audit assignments for reputed IT Companies, Banks and Mutual Funds at National level and grow my Excel skills.
After completing my CA, I joined Hedge Fund Administrator in Fund Accounting Department. Shortly after joining, I automated one task that used to take a couple of hours into just a few seconds. With this achievement, I was entrusted with the task of reviewing each process in the department and automating it with Excel. I was again fortunate to get a platform to horn my Excel Skills.
In 2012, I started my own CA Practice mainly focusing on Global Clients in Excel-related projects. I also joined a San Francisco-based startup to develop a Web-based Financial Modeling Tool for startups in 2016.
