Chief Financial Officer and Educator
I can lead your team to higher levels of financial performance through the benefit of the experience I offer. I often do this as a full-time member of your executive team. However, I can also work as an advisor who builds and educates a highly functional finance group that eventually operates on its own, or as a business and financial expert sitting on your corporate or advisory board.
I practice a philosophy of High-Performance Finance that demands insightful creativity. This method drives an ongoing flow of information needed to plan, predict, measure, and achieve enterprise success. I help finance and accounting groups achieve the next level and make them a proactive contributor to enterprise value.
If you are seeking equity or debt funding, I translate business missions into capital requirements and lead the resulting equity or debt raise from private or public sources. My experience as CFO of two public companies allows me to create an investor relations program that encourages an open line of communication with stakeholders.
Within your organization, I will embed a practice of daily assessment of every facet of finance and accounting activities. This system will maximize the use of resources, mitigate virtuous waste, and achieve High-Performance Finance with existing personnel and operations. While these systems can report the past, their real power lies in examining the future.
I apply an entrepreneurial spirit of creativity into your organization. I am focused on understanding the business case driving finance and accounting considerations where everything is an opportunity.
