It is often said – especially around my house – that a CPA doesn’t make a good carpenter, plumber or electrician. But we do make good CFO’s. I am currently the CFO for Donham & Sweeney – Architects of Boston and I have worked in similar capacities for other firms, particularly in the architect/engineering industry. I spend two days each month at Donham & Sweeney’s offices and I am available by phone and email during other times of the month. I help manage their cash flow, financial reporting and project oversight.
A part-time CFO makes sense for a company that needs ongoing financial oversight and advice but is too small to devote resources to a full-time employee. This type of engagement works for me, too, as I can usually squeeze the time into my schedule. If you are a small company in need of a guiding financial hand, give me a call or shoot me an email and we can discuss how I can help you.
