What attracted you
to FocusCFO?

Having sold my company i decided to spend my time going forward helping small business owners achieve their goals. It didn’t take me long to decide to join FocusCFO because it was the missing piece of every small business owner i have ever met. Having a seasoned financial executive as part of my team that can provide , guidance, forward looking financial and operational information that allow me to proactively manage the company making better decisions instead of guessing.

You can’t imagine being part of a collaborative organization made up of ex business owners and CFO’s all with the same purpose of making a difference in the small business community.
