One of the advantages we have over most new CFO firms is more than 6 years of client testimonials for work performed under our parent company's brand, The Energy CFO, from very successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, family-owned and in some cases family-run direct investments, CPA firms, Board Advisors, and many other professionals. Our story explains how we got our start in the life science field beginning in 2015. Its been a very unique journey that has actually influenced our firm's culture and perspective towards risk taking and continual learning.
We are fortunate to have worked for a lot of great people, amazing companies, savvy investors, and highly talented energy and business professionals over the years. Here is what they have to say about their experience working with us, our dedication and work quality, and our impact on their organizations. We value their testimonials and our firm relies heavily on their referrals as a source of new client business (approximately 80% of our business is referrals from people who are very familiar with our work).
