C-Suite IMPACT CFOs
We find that most organizations don’t need a full time CFO. Often, fractional CFOs are needed to parachute into chaos and need to sort out a firm’s financial situation. Our approach is to use a team of fractional CFOs throughout the month that provides business and financial expertise, do the higher level thinking, and allow the accounting team to do the day-to-day activities. We believe “the numbers” tell a story and a good fractional CFO explores the story of the finances.
