Approach

With the CFO Squad, you’ll get a long-term business partner. We provide organizations experienced CFO-level talent on an outsourced, part-time basis of the cost for a full-time position. We select industry professionals based on your corporate structure. To get started, even before you engage us, we review your financial statements, especially the balance sheet, to understand the financial condition of your business. Then we perform a high-level review of your cash, operations, and accounting, revenue and expense systems. Prepared with this information, we share a snapshot of your business and together we decide on next steps and tailor a solution to fit your needs. Our goal is to help your company’s leaders understand why the business is performing at current levels and then work with you to develop and execute the steps necessary to maximize your company’s future financial performance.

Assessment

The beginning of each engagement, regardless of the size or complexity, begins with an assessment of the Company’s unique business needs and issues. Our assessment involves discussions with the Company’s business leaders and a review of the financial and management data. During this process we will work with the company to determine what the expected outcomes should be and to develop the planned course of actions. Solution Offering and Proposal – Based on the assessment, we will come to a mutual understanding as to what should be achieved, the expected time frame, the deliverables and the CFO consultant to best meet your needs and the expected budget. Deliverables will be reviewed with the client before finalizing the proposed implementation plan. Commence Engagement – Upon the mutual agreement of the engagement terms between the CFO Squad and the company, the engagement is commenced with a “kickoff” meeting. The Kickoff meeting begins with an introduction of the plan with the company’s personnel to establish a unified team approach necessary to achieve the planned course of action.

Performance

Your CFO consultant will commence and complete the project within the expected time frame. They will provide you with a written weekly progress report and communicate with key business leaders on a regular basis.
