Our Customized Client Service Approach

We Add Value By Helping Our Clients Grow Their Companies and Moving Their Businesses To The Next Level


Every single client has a unique business (even within the sectors they operate) and no two are alike.  Our clients are referred to us or find us because they want and require a customized industry-specific Outsourced CFO Solution.  Our CFO Advisory and Consulting Service includes a team of very experienced energy finance professionals (including energy financial modeling) and is designed to wrap around the client's accounting providers.  The Energy CFO's service approach truly sets us apart from all the competition: recruiters, staffing firms, CPA firms offering CFO services, CFO advisory firms, CFO consultants, management consultants, and other client accounting service providers.  We are a small giant in our field and we specialize in helping private entrepreneurial organizations.


Our process begins with custom designing CFO Services to help accelerate our client's growth while also taking into account their needs, key milestones, realistic execution deliverables, and budget.  We do this by taking a holistic view when building processes and teams, as opposed to an a-la-carte menu of services.  This is the way we ran businesses for Fortune companies, billionaire wildcatters, private equity portfolio companies, SMBs of large foreign companies, energy infrastructure developers, and family businesses.  We have just tailored our approach to the specific needs of smaller, private companies.

We make it easy for our clients to plug and play our services into their organizations.  We offer flexible service options (Interim, Fractional a.k.a. Part-Time, Consulting Projects), reliable virtual capabilities and SMEs, hybrid onsite and virtual engagements, and our technology stack leverages affordable cloud technologies and apps (including advanced finance and accounting technology). 


Not surprisingly, our custom solutions are often less expensive than other alternatives.

Startup Energy Infrastructure Success Story

The Energy CFO® packaged a scalable outsourced Vertical CFO Solution™ for one of the largest energy startups in the world by leveraging our project management, CFO startup know-how and many years experience working for complex international multibillion-dollar oil and gas, midstream, LNG, Methanol, and other petrochemical development projects.  We assembled energy finance specialists using our deep energy networks and led a team of independent vertical service partners to help move our client to prepare for a large complex international transaction and move them to the next level in a matter of months.  Our client got a truly on-demand, plug and play solution using the latest cloud technologies and apps.
