FROM ENERGY TO
The Energy CFO® was initially established to help energy entrepreneurs operating in the Eagle Ford accelerate their growth by providing access to experienced CFO leadership that is typically not available to early and mid-stage private companies. Over the years, executives and business owners from other industries asked us to expand our advisory and consulting offering.
WOMAN MAJORITY OWNED BUSINESS
The Energy CFO® is a diverse and inclusive organization. We are a woman majority-owned business. Our minority owner is Hispanic (Bilingual CFO), and our workforce is very experienced. We are headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. Our client office is about two blocks from the Alamo. Appointments are required as we mostly work in the cloud or on-site at our client's offices.
The Energy CFO® was established in 2013 by a GenX Energy CFO who had moved from Houston to San Antonio to work in the Eagle Ford. Paula Waggoner-Aguilar started working in the oil business in the 1990's in the oilfield and power generation in Latin America.
The Energy CFO® is one of a tiny but growing group of women-owned firms with a niche in oil and gas, oil field services and manufacturing, energy renewables, and digital energy technology businesses.
We add value to our client's businesses by helping them accelerate their growth and moving them to the next level.
"Our formula for success is pretty simple. Treat others the way you want to be treated - with respect, candor, and integrity. Be curious, open to new perspectives. Listen. Gain an understanding of other people's perspective and be fair. Communicate frequently. Work really hard and deliver more value than the client expects."
