We make it easy for you to plug and play our services into your organization.  We offer flexible service options that are designed to grow with you until such time when you truly need a full-time CFO. Our CFO Advisory Services includes a team of very experienced energy finance professionals and our services are designed to wrap around your accounting. All of our services are delivered virtually and our workforce is Texas based. Our firm utilizes cloud and automation tech stack along with specialized finance software to perform our analysis, 3-way rolling forecasts, and produce monthly management reports and dashboards. 


Not surprisingly, our custom solutions are often less expensive than other alternatives: executive search recruiters, staffing firms, CPA firms offering CFO services, other CFO advisory firms, independent contractors or CFOs, and management consultants.

Why Outsource Your CFO Work

CFO Advisor | Fractional CFO | FP&A Services

Hiring an outsourced Chief Financial Officer or CFO to help you manage your manufacturing and energy technology company’s finances is a great way to strengthen and grow your business. For energy companies, there are so many choices other than just hiring a full-time and part-time CFO. For example, a Fractional CFOs are outsourced cfos that are retained to work when you need them. Or maybe you want to limit CFO work to a special CFO Consulting project which is another form of outsourced cfo services we offer. Most of our services are virtual cfo services as most of your work can be completed remotely.


The first step is to understand how a CFO Advisor can help you. If you are not familiar with how outsourced cfo services can be used to strengthen your business, you may want to read our blog post about why oil and gas service companies are outsourcing cfo leadership.

If you are not familiar with the difference in the CFO vs. other financial roles such as Controller and/or Accountant, you may want to reference the following blog article first: What is a CFO And What Does A CFO Do? Generally speaking, a CFO helps strengthen your business by building on historical numbers produced by accounting and focusing on helping the CEO drive the company’s financial future.

We Want Your Business To Thrive

Owning and running a private company is tough. Your least abundant resource is time and when you are growing - you never have enough cash. These are common growing pains we see clients struggling with: 

  • Owners are overrun with too many responsibilities - working and running the company.

  • Unfamiliarity with what is going on with the financial health and the performance of their companies. 

  • Not getting relevant and impactful information they need to aid in decision making.

  • Encountering growth resistance points and frustrated with an inability to make traction.

  • Feeling something is off or there is a gap, but not exactly sure what "it" is. 

  • Not getting candid feedback, constructive guidance, or practical solutions to tackle problems.

  • Dealing with gaps in organizational design and governance.

We have experience helping clients with these issues and much more. What we do is help you see the big picture and understand how the administrative and operational pieces of your business impact your profitability, cash flow, and/or hold back growth so you can take action.
