Mission

The service I provide is Chief Financial Officer for hire.  A CFO has the responsibility for all financially related activities of the company. 

This includes but not limited to:

  1. Managing processes of budgets, financial forecasting and associated reporting to management.
  2. Ensuring financial credibility by providing timely and accurate analysis of budgets, financial trends and forecasts.
  3. Providing recommendations to enhance financial performance.
  4. Directing and overseeing all aspects of the Finance and Accounting functions of the company
  5. Maintaining a strong relationship with the owner and senior executives in identifying their needs and exploring business solutions with them
  6. Ensuring that effective internal controls are in place and the records are maintained in compliance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principals, federal, state and local regulations.

Many owners do not have any of the above in place for their company.  They are probably spending more time than necessary on the financial aspect of their business rather than concentrating on their strengths or they are not spending any time on the financial aspects then are in trouble at the end of the year when they need to file their tax returns or make financial plans or decisions.

The business has grown to a million dollar company, employing 5 people.
