BUILDING PLATFORMS FOR STRATEGIC GROWTH AND PROFITABILITY

Insightful, Adaptive, and Strategic CFO and Business Partner who is a trusted advisor to C-suite, investors, and key stakeholders.

Anticipates issues, clearly articulates potential risks, and establishes the strategies, processes, and tools that propel enterprise value, support organic and inorganic growth, and create best-in-class finance and accounting organizations. Brings strategic vision, analytic agility, and operational insight to formulate initiatives that create scalable businesses, improve profitability, and strengthen financial position and transparency. Wins respect as a principled relationship builder and leader who fosters collaboration. Notable strengths and contributions….

o Transforming Organizations: Improved financial results and transformed the accounting groups and financial reporting processes to best-in-class at each of the last five companies.

o Positioning for successful exit strategy: Carried out several financial transformation initiatives at one company which led to 20% improvement in company valuation and expected sales price. Built best-in-class finance and accounting organization; improved adjusted EBITDA 20%; increased cash balance 400% while also reducing bank debt; and strengthened cash flow through performance improvement initiatives.

o Restoring Financial Performance: Partnered with CEO at one company to carry out a financial turnaround. Increased company valuation 200% in part by driving monthly EBITDA from -26% to +36% within one year, strengthening cash flow with a reduction of DSO from 100 to 30 days, and eliminating unprofitable client engagements and account balance write-offs. Later raised $90M via an IPO (NYSE).

o Manage companies with high revenue growth; and companies requiring operational turn-around due to decreased revenue, negative cash flow, and losses. Avoided bankruptcy and a cash crisis by optimizing cash flows and working capital management at a software company.
