CFO / Controller

Help You Know Your Numbers & Plan

Many times I talk to clients and say “I was a Controller at … firm”.  And they say “What?” If I say Chief Financial Officer (CFO), they may have heard of that title.  I have ran accounting areas, prepared financial reports, and helped prepare strategic plans.  I bring that accounting experience to your small business through part-time service.  I can help you understand your numbers and plan.
