Testimonials from The Strategic
CFO Clients

 “As a rapidly growing company we hired The Strategic CFO, in January 2020, to help with the difficult transition period from small business to something bigger, where we needed new systems and processes to manage our volume and our growth. It was an excellent decision. We were provided with two knowledgeable, creative, hard-working and seasoned executives, one a CFO and one a Controller, to work with us, analyzing our books, our accounting structure and the overall financial health of the company and the department.   We had a new accounting system in place which unfortunately has not always been as easy to work with as advertised. Although always a work in progress, we now believe it will get us where we need to go. Then, in June of 2020, our current Accounting Manager left the company, but we were in good shape, because we knew exactly what we needed to do to and the skill set needed to do it.  We made the decision to offer both of our Strategic CFO advisers a position and we now have a new CFO and Controller.  Both new positions for our company. We could not be more pleased with the caliber of the people Strategic CFO brought to work with us, how quickly they were able to jump in and understand our business and financial requirements and their ability to analyze and affect change. Strategic CFO also embraced our decision to hire their employees, making the transition from one payroll to another easy and seamless. We give Strategic CFO our highest rating, our company is better because we hired them.”

[Dan’s] advice and guidance was exactly what I needed at the time, and the result has been quite positive. I find Dan honest, patient, and thorough and would recommend any business owner seeking the same services to consider his firm.”

As CEO of Pipe Exchange, I retained Dan Corredor to assist my company through various issues. We were owned by a private equity group that was looking to exit and we needed some strategic guidance. We needed to come up with an exit strategy and budget while also considering valuation of our business. With Dan’s extensive background in M&A and dealing with private equity groups, Dan was able to help us through this new chapter in our company. Dan’s ability to quickly understand our business and work with our management team made the transaction much easier. Please consider this a letter of recommendation for Dan and I would certainly hire him again if there were a need.”

“I went into The Strategic CFO Coaching program with concerns or my company regarding risk management, automation, and moving to a paperless environment. I absolutely feel that the program helped me focus my energy on productive areas to address these concerns. It’s an excellent program and I really respect Jim.”

“I had the opportunity of participating in The Strategic CFO™’s coaching program at a critical juncture in my career as I transitioned from a Controller to a CFO. There are many demands placed on CFOs. The coaching program challenged me to cut through the clutter of day-to-day tasks, and instead focus my efforts on key business drivers, leadership, and ultimately sales and implementation of ideas and initiatives to superiors, peers, subordinates, and financiers. In short, the focus of the program is to encourage participants to frame the role of the CFO as a value creator, not a cost center, in both fact and perception. I would highly recommend this program for both current and aspiring CFOs.”
