transition of ownershipOur Founder and former President, Jim Wilkinson unexpectedly passed away in his sleep on June 15th, 2017. We are grateful for the time we had with him and to work for the incredible organization he built. He is survived by his bride of 34 years and his two beautiful daughters.

Transition of Ownership

Over the past several months, his family and our team have been diligently looking for someone to continue Jim’s legacy at the firm – that is The Strategic CFO. It was important to find someone who had the experience, vision,  talent, and the drive to grow The Strategic CFO.

In 2017, Daniel “Dan” Corredor acquired The Strategic CFO. Dan was a business friend of Jim’s for over 20 years. He saw the vision Jim had for this company from the beginning. Additionally, Dan has a very similar background to Jim’s, making him the perfect fit.

With 28+ years of total experience, Dan’s expertise includes the following:

  • Accounting efficiencies
  • International operations
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Operational and financial restructuring
  • Due diligence and post closure business integration
  • Working capital, cash flow management and business improvement

He also deals with business owners and private equity groups during different phases of growth and transition. In addition, Dan has extensive international operational experience, including 10+ years working in Latin America and consulting in Turkmenistan. Dan’s experience also includes working with lenders, bond holders and ratings agencies.

He has held multiple CFO positions and was promoted twice to President & CEO. In addition, Dan has sat on boards as an internal board member and external board member.

Prior to acquiring The Strategic CFO, Dan was consulting for five years. Before that he was President & CEO of a regulated water utility, which was a company that required operational and financial restructuring after experiencing a crisis. Prior to that Dan was promoted from CFO to President & CEO at a Japanese owned Petrochemical company. Dan’s Latin American experience includes both working as CFO in Mexico for a large publicly traded water utility for 4 years and 6 years with two large publicly traded oil and gas service companies in financial executive roles.

With new ownership, there are often many questions. If you are a consulting, coaching, or a retained search client, you may hear from or work with Dan; everything else should remain the same. If you are a coaching participant or SCFO Lab member, all of the information currently available to you will remain the same, with more content available to you soon. Your questions and feedback is most important to us. If you have any suggestions or questions, please email us at

If you are not currently a client or SCFO Lab member and have questions/comments, please contact us here. We appreciate your loyalty as we have built The Strategic CFO to this point.

Thank you for your continued support over these past couple of months!
