Large companies employ top executives in sales, operations and finance. They provide the strategies and management expertise required to bring in customers, competitively produce the firm’s products or services and provide the financial management and planning required to maximize the firm’s profitability and growth.
Small and mid-market companies also employ top sales and operations executives, but not financial executives. The majority have bookkeepers or controllers who process financial transactions and generate financial reports, but who cannot provide the financial strategies or offer the level of financial sophistication, problem solving, forecasting and strategic financial management the companies need to maximize profitability and growth.
Companies without a CFO are at a disadvantage. Most small and mid-market firms have sophisticated operations and complex cost and financial challenges just like large companies. They need the expertise of a senior financial executive, but not full time, nor can they afford the cost of a full-time CFO. These firms often seek financial advice from their CPA firms that provide tax, reporting and general financial guidance, but do not have the corporate experience and specialized skills in which CFOs excel.
