Bonnie is the owner of Five Star Accounting (formerly known as Hospitality Solutions Inc.).
Bonnie has over 30 years of accounting experience. In 1978, Bonnie was employed by a $30M commercial printing operation, first as Assistant Controller and later promoted to Controller. From there, Bonnie entered the hospitality industry after accepting the position as Controller of a local restaurant group. After seeing a need for a full service consulting and accounting firm for companies in the hospitality industry, Bonnie founded Hospitality Solutions in December of 2003. The accounting services portion thrived and after 8 years, it was time to rebrand - hence the name change to Five Star Accounting to better reflect who we are and the work that we do.
Today, Five Star Accounting provides accounting, bookkeeping, payroll and management services to medium-sized businesses in Winnipeg and Calgary in a variety of industries.
Bonnie is passionate about accounting as would be attested by her family and friends, as well as co-workers and clients. Bonnie and her husband, Bill enjoy time with their children and grandchildren. Animals are also a big part of Bonnie's life and she thoroughly enjoys when her clients visit her with their pets!
In 2014, Bonnie was awarded the Manitoba Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Excellence in Service award by the Women Business Owners of Manitoba. As a watchdog over her numerous clients, in addition to the challenges of her own company, Bonnie can appreciate first hand the hard work and dedication required by business owners to survive and prosper. Bonnie uses her years of experience in accounting and accumulated business acumen to help all her clients grow and prosper.
