WAKE FOREST — In the first week of March, town of Wake Forest accountant Alice DeGaetano earned a promotion and a prestigious professional certification.

The Wake Forest Finance Department announced DeGaetano’s promotion to accounting services manager, where she will oversee the department’s accounting division.

A few days later, on March 5, DeGaetano earned her N.C. Finance Officer Certification during the N.C. Government Finance Officers Association spring conference.

A native of Guangdong, China, DeGaetano joined the town of Wake Forest in August 2015 after working as a staff accountant at Community Partnerships, Inc. Prior to that, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in business economics with a minor in accounting from UCLA.

“We are extremely proud of Alice,” said Assistant Finance Director Antwan Morrison. “Out of the 500 plus municipalities across the state, only a few individuals have earned their N.C. Finance Officer Certification. Since joining the town she has made several significant contributions and continues to help chart the future of the accounting division.”
