Press Release: Marcus Bergen Joins CFOs2GO
CFOs2GO Adds New Partner to Expand Its International Practice Area
Marcus now co-leads the International practice area to meet the growing needs of non-US companies entering the US market and US companies establishing a presence in Europe. The focus is to expand and enhance support to mid-market and large-scale companies — from start-up, rapid growth, pre-IPO and post IPO stages of growth – with regional expertise as they set up and maintain operations.
“We are excited to expand this important focus to our practice areas. With the future of many fast-growing companies establishing their reach across national borders today, our aim is to accelerate their rate of success with competent financial expertise and support. Marcus is the perfect partner to lead our growth,” notes Robert Weis, CFOs2GO founder and CEO.
Marcus cites: “CFOs2GO is an ideal organization to leverage my 20-plus years of professional experience in working with internationally expanding clients as an auditor and partner of a global audit firm. I very much look forward to contributing value to our client base and bringing an international perspective that distinguishes our broad service palette from other consulting practices.”
Weis adds: “In addition, we are deepening our ability to support clients between Europe and the US as we have set up our office in the UK. Marcus brings both his financial and planning expertise to meet the needs of companies setting up foreign operations. His extensive experience working with companies in Europe and the US will expand our service capability to CFOs2GO clients. He will also support our clients in need of internal audit services. In both areas, our goal is to bring the most up-to-date expertise to support our clients.”
We are grateful for the chance to expand our support and relationships with our clients, partners and team. “As I listen to our clients, I welcome suggestions for new ways to support and add value to our client success”, says Weis. “Our goal is to bring the best future-oriented thinking and solutions to our clients.”
CFOs2GO was established by Bob Weis in 1986. He observed that startups and small/medium businesses had all the financial complexities and challenges of large firms having full-time CFOs but seldom had the resources for a full-time hire. They would generally employ a bookkeeper and hire a part-time accountant but there wasn’t a way for them to get the strategic financial planning and guidance of an experienced CFO. Building with an entrepreneurial culture and passion for varied challenges of a wide range of financial specialties; e.g., mergers & acquisition, international finance, venture capital, business valuation, CFOs2GO sought to serve startups, small and medium businesses with “long term, part-time” consulting CFOs.
CFOs2GO quickly attracted like-minded CFOs seeking value in a team of specialists collegially committed to growing its client base and bringing new areas of specialty finance to the firm. There are now partners specializing in 26 practice areas that include specific industries and specialized financial knowledge. The firm also added recruiting services to become one of the first hybrid consulting/staffing companies. This unique approach allows professional experienced CFOs to be guiding a business’ financial operation while referring and recommending qualified candidates for permanent positions, all selected with a detailed and long term knowledge of the business’ culture and business plan. The best possible candidate with career growth potential is always put forward saving money and dramatically increasing employee retention.
CFOs2GO is growing based on the dynamic needs of its clients. With its flexible model, the firm offers CFO advice, consulting, recruitment for full-time talent and in-house support services, such as bookkeeping for small firms. “Our aim is to meet the custom need of every client at any stage of their business. We deeply appreciate our clients for their working with us for more than three decades,” said Robert Weis.
