Need fast action on getting accurate financial statements and control of your accounting?
With 25+ years of both small and large-company experience, I can quickly get your accounting system up-to-date and produce accurate financial statements for management, investors/lenders, and tax authorities. With this, we're in a better position to make key decisions, improve cash-flow and set goals & controls.
I've got great hands-on experience in:
- handling all accounting and finance activities, as described in the list to the left
- creating systems from scratch for start-ups
- catch-ups and clean-ups for established businesses
- building industrial-strength IT systems to support accounting
- HR management and payroll, including taxes
- bringing to realization new revenue development programs including call-centers, CRM systems and Internet / e-commerce based initiatives
I've also prepared dozens of business plans and loan/investor packages, including world-class spreadsheet-based financial models. With this we can raise capital, and present to investors, banks, key vendors and customers, Boards of Directors and other stake-holders. An example is when a $600MM client spun-off its business equipment leasing division, and I prepared a prospectus and presented to firms across the U.S. and U.K., resulting in a $68MM sale. I am comfortable in working with all of these groups and understand how they think and the information they need.
E-commerce and the Internet are areas where I have been involved since the beginning, including e-store and web-site design, credit card processing, fulfillment, SEM, SEO, shopping comparison engines and all of the nitty-gritty from FTP to programming. For example, I helped grow a dot-com from 6 to 61 employees (revenue $0 to over $11MM) in 18 months. But I have lengthy experience in many other industries too, as you can see on the list to the left.
Before things take-off, I'm available on a part-time/contractor basis. And as things grow, I hope to produce value such that we can make a more durable agreement.
Born on the east coast, I received my B.S. in Finance (minor in accounting) and MBA from a top Big-10 school, and commenced my career in internal audit for a Fortune 100 multinational industrial firm before moving to California in the 80's. I have many business contacts here in southern Cal, and maintain strong relationships within the accounting, banking, investor and legal communities.
I will provide a resume, references and other information as needed.
