CFOS2GO – CFO Advisory, Recruiting and Coaching Services
Financial management concerns can change quickly for any business due to changes in its business, in its technology or in its external environment. Staffing a CFO to anticipate and respond to business changes using proven strategies and tactics is a big advantage when trying to avoid business threats, fulfill business obligations or take advantage of business opportunities. CFOs2GO provides CFO advisory services in finance and accounting on an interim and consulting basis and recruitment for direct hire positions. Our team is comprised of seasoned consulting CFOs and professional recruiters who are accomplished in helping CEOs and senior executives understand and address financial management concerns on an “as-needed” basis.
Most companies are either interim consulting houses providing part-time CFOs or they serve as recruiting houses, placing full-time staff. CFOs2GO is designed to produce significant client value through an interweaving of both consulting and recruiting capabilities, each supporting and enhancing the other. This arrangement enables us to assess and respond quickly and appropriately to the requirements based entirely on what the client needs as opposed to what we have to sell.
Optimal Mix to Fulfill on Tight Budgets and Deadlines
Our hybrid approach enables a seamless continuum of services where a consulting CFO can solve individual needs as they arise and then recruit full-time staff and, if warranted, transition to a full-time CFO as the company’s needs change and grow. Rather than saddle a client with a more expensive consultant, CFOs2GO is able to assign consulting CFOs to handle the work required for their expertise while delegating less critical tasks to the appropriate team member. We treat your project and budget the way we would treat our own.
Proven Process for Best Recruiting Results
A unique element of CFOs2GO is the alignment of our recruiters with the consulting group. This tight integration provides access to industry and technical experts that enable recruiters to understand the demands of the roles to be filled. It also allows them to integrate a consulting CFO into the recruiting process to assess complex technical skills. With a proprietary database of more than 50,000 candidate relationships, insights gleaned through more than 100,000 phone interviews and conversations with references plus more than 10,000 face-to-face interviews, our recruiting process reliably develops relationships with higher quality candidates. The result is candidates that are a truer match to the needs of the client based on vetting that began before your job opening. Our clients experience shorter recruiting cycles and lower overall hiring costs by reducing hiring risks.
We have a deep commitment to be the best we can be in our professional services. We want to share with everyone we encounter how we work and why. By sharing our beliefs, we aim to hold ourselves accountable for setting expectations that are consistent and excellent.
Thus, we invite you to learn about the principles we call “Our Way”.
Be Authentic: Build Meaningful Relationships
We balance being open and genuine with being candid and caring in all our relationships. Our work is not transactional. It is built on a combination of respect and rapport with people as we competently apply our skills to help others. We enjoy the people with whom we work. We do what we say and say what we do.
We aim to be experts by applying our competencies in accounting and finance while maintaining deep knowledge of industries and situations. Through this expertise and competency, we anticipate and produce broad and deep solutions quickly and coherently. We design solutions to be both relevant today and in the future. We determine and agree with clients about what is valuable and aim to produce it reliably. Value is the standard of performance to achieve in all we do. We add value to each client and their projects, staying mindful of budgets and schedules. We are sensitive to the importance of working culture, dynamics, and strategies of organizations. We think creatively to find better ways to solve challenges in all our work. We protect the confidentiality of clients’ information as privileged. We contribute to protecting the public confidence in our industry with our participation and support of our professional associations and adherence to the professional code of ethics.
Be Flexible: Explore and Adapt
We know not all solutions require us. Versatile, we build solutions with other partners who have the requisite expertise or select contract staffing or assign direct hires to meet client objectives. We recognize financial management is a support function and adapt solutions and approaches to build consensus and ensure valuable results.
Be Open: Relentlessly Learn and Share
To maintain our deep bench strength in financial services and the industries we serve, we constantly stay abreast of changes and best practices. We are not pretentious. Instead, we stay open to learning and sharing what we learn with our partners and clients, to make us all smarter and more effective. We are committed to “permanent education” as professionals who love challenges. Continuous education, publishing our insights and being thought leaders are pillars to staying competent.
Be Generous: Help, Help and Help Some More
Helping is our driving force. We are a positive force in our professional lives. We look for opportunities to contribute to our partners, our firm, our professional network and our community. We provide full support to new members of our team to ensure they can develop and succeed smoothly and quickly. We evaluate what clients say they need, consider far-reaching options for their sustainable effectiveness and offer out best thinking on their behalf. Our model of both direct advisors and placement of candidates offers a uniquely flexible way to help in both customized and dynamic ways. We take no assignments for which we lack the expertise. Staying abreast of market standards, we refer work outside our scope to professionals to help our clients.
We encourage you to suggest ways we can deepen the ways we live “Our Way”.
