Overview

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 finance and accounting expertise 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.

How CFOs2GO is Different: The Best of 2 WorldsBest of 2 Worlds graphic

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 a 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.
