Walk with the Dreamers by Wilferd Arlan

Energy To Healthcare & Beyond

The Energy CFO® was initially established in 2013 to help businesses accelerate their growth and take them to the next level by providing access to experienced CFO (Chief Financial Officer) leadership that is not typically available to early and middle-market companies and their investors.  Very quickly, our founder saw a need for the firm to expand its SHARED CFO Services to include Interim, Fractional a.k.a. Part-Time, and Virtual CFO services that essentially wrap a company’s accounting providers. 


In 2015, The Energy CFO® began diversifying into new sciences, technology, and engineering-related industries.  Since then, we have worked for executives running regenerative medicine, tissue and stem cell manufacturing, medical devices, engineering firms, petrochemical, and various technology businesses. Today we have a mix of clients – both small and large.  Along our journey, we discovered how applicable our knowledge, skills, and experience are to other industries and how much we enjoy the challenge of learning about new industries.  In fact, we launched a new division in the summer of 2019 for our Life Science and Healthcare practice, The Healthcare CFO


Both The Energy CFO and our healthcare division are headquartered in San Antonio, Texas.  We also maintain a small private office in Houston.    We provide virtual and on-site services to clients in San Antonio, Houston, Austin and the I-35 Corridor, Corpus Christi, Eagle Ford counties, Louisiana Gulf Coast (the Texas and Louisiana Petrochemical Complex) and Dallas, Texas.   Some of our clients have international offices and projects.  Our virtual capabilities, along with our international work experience, have proved to be a competitive advantage for our clients with international operations.
