Every organization reaches a growth point at which it becomes necessary to have someone qualified and experienced to manage its financial health and future. Hiring an organization that can serve as an outsourced CFO is a great idea that fits within the budget of many growing companies. A CFO is a financial expert (or team of experts) that work as a strategic financial consultant for businesses on an hourly, part-time, or otherwise contracted basis. They are experienced in high-level financial analysis in both private and public companies during a spectrum of growth stages. The goal is to assist small-to-medium sized businesses on everything from strategic planning to financial analysis to bookkeeping to payroll to human resources and more.
