Twenty years ago, Timm reached out to business friends, bankers and CPAs and asked them what struggling companies had in common. The consistent answer was poor financial processes and records. They were too small to afford a full-time controller or CFO but had the most to gain from an experienced team of financial professionals.
It was then he created the company that became CFO Next, Inc. The market has called these services ‘interim CFO services,’ ‘part time CFO services’, and ‘fractional CFO services.’ Timm, however, has evolved this service concept into a ‘swat team’ solution where multiple skill sets and levels of experience will best help a company’s unique circumstances.
A company might need solutions that one person’s experience can solve. However, we find there are many situations where diverse problems require a team approach. That is where we excel and are different than other providers. Our learning curve is short and your return on investment is greater!
