CFO Services Tailored To Your Needs

Fractional CFO | Virtual CFO | Part-Time CFO | Interim CFO 

We custom-tailor solutions to fit your unique needs in a very complex industry.  We do this by taking a holistic view when building your processes and teams, as opposed to a standard "cookie cutter" package service offered by alternatives.  To get a better idea of what your scope of service might include, take a look at the examples at the bottom of this webpage for growth companies vs. established (mature) companies needs. 

We make it easy for you to plug and play our services into your organization.  We offer flexible service options that are designed to grow with you until such time when you truly need a full-time CFO, which we can also help you with. Our CFO Advisory and Consulting Service includes a team of experienced finance professionals and our services are designed to wrap around your accounting. We utilize a remote Texas based workforce. Our firm utilizes the latest cloud and automation tech stack along with specialized finance software to perform our analysis, 3-way rolling forecasts, and produce monthly management reports and dashboards. You don't need to buy any software - we come equipped!

 

Not surprisingly, our custom solutions are often less expensive than other alternatives: executive search recruiters, staffing firms, CPA firms offering CFO services, other CFO advisory firms, independent contractors or CFOs, and management consultants.

Outsource Your CFO Work To The Healthcare CFO 

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.
