Since CFO’s founding in 2004, the company has pioneered a unique approach to building its business resulting in strong growth for the company and a deep track record of success for its clients
Success by Leveraging Our Experience
From our vantage point it seems like we have “seen it all.” This vantage point is unique because our business model allows us to “get in the trenches” with our clients. It feels like there is no problem in business that we have not seen through our experiences with our client base. We achieve success by accumulating and retaining this experience. We are able to quickly identify both problems and opportunities, ask challenging questions, diagnose effective strategies and deploy solutions with our clients to achieve results. We have leveraged this experience by developing a strong complement of business processes and tools we can bring to the table. We can do this effectively when combined with our other two strengths: relationships and people
Success Through People
CFO seeks to employ, retain and develop great people. People are the bedrock of our company. We have on staff a full complement of financial and accounting professionals capable of meeting the complete spectrum of finance and accounting business needs. Our people are specialist by training, but work in teams providing a true “one-stop-shopping” capability for our clients, allocated on an “as-needed” basis.
Success Through Building Long Term Relationships
In everything CFO does, we seek to grow based on a foundation of long term relationships. It is certainly not the easy way to grow and many consulting firms choose the alternative route by employing tactics that are profitable in the short term, but burn bridges in the long term. We believe there is strength in strong relationships, creating value for both sides in the long run. Our business is built on this principle.
