CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER SERVICE

Most small to mid-sized companies do not have a chief financial officer.  Often the owner of the company tries to fill this position while being responsible for all other management functions.  We provide CFO services on an as-needed basis.  Usually from a few hours per month to many hour per week is needed.  We have lending relationships with various banks and introduce our clients to key bank personnel in order to facilitate a fast track approach.  A good CFO is a strategist with a high degree of financial acumen and the ability to tell the company’s story to various audiences.  A strong CFO must be able to consider all of the financial factors and form a single, coherent picture of a company’s financials – to see the big picture and understand where the myriad little pictures fit in – and to effectively communicate the findings internally and externally.

As a true business partner to the CEO and Executive management, the CFO will assess organizational performance against both the annual budget and company’s long term strategy.

The CFO will develop and implement systems and tools to provide critical financial and operational information to the CEO, and make strategic recommendations on operations. They will engage the board around issues, trends and changes in the operating models and operational delivery.
