Born and raised in Missouri, I was taught by the best – KPMG Peat Marwick (St. Louis) and three of the most awesome family-owned businesses in the heart of the Midwest.
After the Big 8 gig was up, I was off to private industry where I worked for one of the most amazing family-owned businesses in the country.
Nearly 10 years later, I would join CFO free agency because I wanted to make a difference in the hearts and minds of business leaders by delivering financial confidence and capabilities in a unique and compelling way.
In short, my clients now ‘get it’ from a financial perspective. Add financial confidence on steroids for business owners that already understand operations, marketing, business development, and leading people, and in return you get a business that is going to win (or should).
More importantly, the end result for every business I work with is a more valuable business–one that’s very sellable or one that can easily survive the next generation if that is the goal of the owner.
