Rokeya Begum Joins Office of Business Services as the Accounting Specialist
Rokeya Begum has recently joined the Poole College of Management’s Office of Business Services (OBS) as the accounting specialist. She will be replacing Tina Riley and Lisette Polyak in this role.
Begum has previously served as an accounting technician at NC State where she processed financial transactions and monitored workflow, as well as resolved issues for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. She also worked at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as an accounting technician reconciling vendor statements and large volume invoice reviews.
As the accounting specialist for OBS, Begum will be responsible for PCard reconciliation, personal reimbursements, journal vouchers, interdepartmental transfers and travel reimbursement. She will also be researching and resolving any discrepancies in financial records, and helping with SOP to create content.
“We are very excited about Rokeya joining the Office of Business Services,” said Josh Agner, accountant for Poole College. “We look forward to seeing how she will bring her wealth of on-campus financial knowledge as well as a great customer service attitude to help make Poole College the best we can be. I know she is looking forward to working with the faculty, staff and students in Poole and helping us grow into the model college we want to be for the university!”
Outside of work, she enjoys traveling and cooking but says baking is her true passion. She received her bachelor of science in accounting from Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York, in December 2010.
