Bill Hake

  • CFO
  • Detroit Metro

Over 30 years of holding the chief financial officer position for family-owned companies, a branch of a large international company and smaller privately-owned entrepreneurs. Success was derived from identifying the capital needs required to support the exponential forecasted growth in revenue and proving the cash flow model works for the creditors and the company. Has worn all the hats that a small business CFO must wear and have always crossed the finish line in time. Values the opportunity to share experiences and wisdom to small business entrepreneurs who look to add structure, scalable growth and sustainable value to their enterprise.

Before FocusCFO

Served as Chief Financial Officer at Cloverdale Equipment Company, an equipment rental company specializing in lift equipment primarily for the construction industry. Previously held CFO and Controller positions in two other organizations after getting my start in the public accounting firm Perrin, Fordree and Co. Received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an accounting major at Central Michigan University.
