Nperspective CFO & Strategic Services, LLC.
The firm was founded with the belief that many small companies need the expertise of seasoned financial executives that are often unable to afford to “buy” that expertise on a full-time basis. In addition, there are many small and highly profitable companies who can afford a full-time chief financial officer but don’t really need one on a day-to-day basis. This remains the core business of the firm. To address these needs, the firm provides executives with extensive financial expertise and experience on an as-needed basis, calibrating engagements to client needs and available resources. These services are primarily in the form of part-time or interim chief financial officer.
The primary difference between a “controller” and a “chief financial officer” (CFO) is that the CFO has an experience level that allows the professional to couple a strong financial background with a strategic vision to participate in the development of a client’s overall business strategy and then articulate that strategy in the form of financial reporting and analysis. Clients who typically need these services are those who are attempting to raise capital resources or those who are seeking strategic transactions, such as a joint venture alliance or a sale. In these cases, a professional with “CFO-level” credentials can provide the experience and perspective needed to shepherd the client through a critical transition period.
