We Care and 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.
Do You Want To Be In The Same Place Next Year?
The answer, of course, is no!
Whether it's been a successful year for your business or one you'd rather forget, the goal is always to keep moving forward.
What are you doing to make this goal a reality?
Have you quantified what your business plan means in terms of future profits and cash flows?
Are you measuring and monitoring your sales, budget, and profit margin performance against your plan?
Our CFO Advisory and Consulting Services can help you develop your company's road map, budget and forecast, visualize your business plan, develop strategy, prepare for transactions, present to your board, and help advise you as you navigate your company to the next level.
CFO Services To Help You Improve And Grow
We help owners and executives grow their companies and move their business to the next level. Our suite of CFO Services are custom-tailored to the needs of modern business owners. Every one of our clients has a unique business (even within the industry sectors they operate), and no two are alike.
We Work For Private Companies
We work for entrepreneurs, single and multi-generation family businesses (either family or professional led), energy project developers, energy professionals (engineers, etc.), founding executive teams, c-suite executives (Board Chairman, CEOs, Presidents, COOs, even CFOs), high net worth individuals, family offices, and private equity.
Approximately 75% of our clients have technical backgrounds - the rest are amazing self taught individuals (school of hard knocks) or industry disrupters. The majority of our clients are engineers or working owners with operations backgrounds, scientists, a couple of technologists, quants, and financial professionals (banking, investment banking, investment, or accounting professionals). Included in this group is a growing number of women business owners and energy executives.
