The Albert Companies

"We went through a major business transaction that we couldn’t have done without the vcfo team. They played a key role in driving The Albert Companies to our best year in revenue and profits."

Bobby Albert, CEO
The Albert Companies

AndersonMasonDale Architects

"Our firm has traditionally had two people in the accounting department, but with the uncertain economy in recent years, we decided to move to a new paradigm. Now we have one full-time Bookkeeper with part-time senior-level support from vcfo. It’s been a great collaboration. vcfo has provided a level of expertise that is immensely valuable, but something we could not afford on a full-time basis. Our virtual CFO brings years of experience in diverse financial reporting challenges and gives us the support to make critical decisions with the confidence that we are well informed.

vcfo has helped us refine and strengthen key aspects of our financial function. We have streamlined payroll to free up time for our Bookkeeper to cover other needs. We are transitioning to a new software package with the confidence of having someone on our team that has helped other firms through similar efforts and we have refined our project reporting to ensure firm leadership gets just the right information they need to run the business. All this while the wheels of the operation continue to churn.

I highly recommend vcfo for CFO consulting and financial management solutions."

Andy Nielsen, Principal
AndersonMasonDale Architects

I highly recommend vcfo as my choice of financial consulting firms, to any business looking for someone to fill a CFO role."

"vcfo has been an invaluable CFO consulting resource for our early-stage, privately held company. Initially, they were charged with developing strong financial and forecast reporting and processes, tax filings and preparing us for our initial annual financial audit with a Big 4 firm. Since 2007, vcfo has worked with us providing exemplary financial leadership across the board, particularly in the following areas:

  • Preparing monthly reporting to management, investors and bankers
  • Leading company interaction with our outside audit firm, helping bring our annual audit in on time and within budget with no adjustments
  • Leading company activities for federal and state tax filings and including management of audits performed by regulatory groups and the favorable negotiation of county property taxes
  • Working with our insurance broker to procure the necessary business insurance required for our manufacturing and early-stage company
  • Supporting multiple financings by setting up and maintaining electronic data rooms that provide for an efficient due diligence process, and working with our attorney on various legal agreements and reconciliations of capitalization tables"

Isolux Ingenieria

"I was very impressed by our vcfo CFO and her approach to her work. She parachuted into our company as a virtual CFO during our start-up phase and was an integral part of achieving our first successful project and implementing the systems that enabled us to grow to over 100 employees within two years. She handles challenging and fast-changing situations very well, without losing sight of the goal and has excellent people skills. In addition to her CFO skill-set, her ability to operate in multiple languages was very valuable, especially since the company is a subsidiary of a company from Europe. Although she was an external consultant, she approached the role with the commitment of a full-time employee and did an excellent job of interfacing with our internal team, shareholders and other advisors. I would not hesitate to work with vcfo again."

Madagascar Oil

"vcfo was instrumental in helping the Company go public on the London AIM exchange.This entailed getting our financial records in compliance with IFRS and working closely with our auditors here in the states and in London. They also played a major role in implementing our new oil and gas E&P software while transitioning from our current platform. Their ongoing assistance with our domestic and international financial reporting and capital needs at a senior level as a public company was invaluable. As we grew and our needs increased we tapped vcfo to help us with hiring a senior finance executive to take over operations internally. The transition was seamless and we still call on them as needed for ongoing assistance."

Seth Fagelman, CFO

National Trauma Institute

"Making the decision to work with vcfo is one of the best decisions we have made—not only did we receive a far higher level of expertise and quality of service, the costs have been dramatically less than paying our own employee a full-time salary. Further, vcfo made immediate recommendations to lower operating expenses. vcfo is one of the top financial recruiting firms and is our future."

Sharon Smith, Executive Director
National Trauma Institute

Omniprobe, Inc.

"When our CFO started with Omniprobe, he immediately brought direction and stability to the financial reporting systems and processes, preparing us from day one for an eventual sale. His guidance and foresight led us successfully through our first public audit and resulted in a very efficient due diligence process. His CFO consulting support resulted in our successful acquisition at an increased valuation. He then organized and led the critical post-acquisition activities of integration into a large public corporation and even helped hire and train his own full-time replacement. I believe that we would not have had as successful an outcome without him. In fact, it is quite possible that the acquisition would not have occurred without his experience and commitment to success. And along the way, he saved us over $100,000 in taxes! His wealth of experience and enthusiasm would be welcome in any organization."

Tom Moore, President
Omniprobe, Inc.

ProvidaCare

"vcfo has been and continues to be great partner for our organization. At a time when several changes in the organization were being made, vcfo provided guidance as well as stability in the accounting and finance departments.

Ryan Bennett, CEO

Our company was able to transition to new financial leadership without worry about everyday management reporting. Highly recommended by our attorneys and accountants as a premier CFO consulting firm, the vcfo team was a key component of our transition and our advancement."

Sonny Bryan’s Smokehouse

"vcfo has been a big asset to Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse for the past six years. Initially they were charged with heading up the reorganization of our finance department and developing sound financial and management reporting. Thanks to vcfo, the reorganization is complete and the department is functioning at a high level. With our new accounting department and vcfo’s involvement we finally have a stable, consistent and highly functioning financial process.

Teton Aviation Group, LLC

"Teton Aviation Group, LLC engaged vcfo in late 2011 to assist with financial analysis, establish key financial indicators for our company and provide guidance in our international expansion efforts. Early in our engagement with vcfo, our company had an unexpected opportunity to sell a large portion of our business to a strategic buyer. Since we had not been through a sales process to completion previously, having a CFO with extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions on board with our company enabled us to move quickly and confidently through the transaction process. Our virtual CFO served on our strategic negotiating team and was highly visible throughout the process, participating in all face-to-face negotiations. His experience was invaluable in multiple facets of the transaction and his assistance and expertise were important in getting the transaction closed.

We heartily recommend the services of vcfo."

Glenn and Joe Hertzler
Teton Aviation Group, LLC

Treehouse Brand Stores

"I can't believe how wonderful the entire process has been working with the vcfo Controller and CFO. The three of us worked really well together. No doubt it has been a ton of work, but working with them gave me such a better perspective on so many things with the systems at THBS. Their experience, knowledge and suggestions were beyond valuable. When we started the processes, I could not imagine how in the world they would be able to grasp the complexity of our system integration and all of the trials that we've faced over the past two years. But, in no time they were both up to speed and able to make suggestions and implement strategies to get everything audit-ready."

Doni Files, Director of Finance
Treehouse Brand Stores

Professional, timely, thorough and willing to work through to ensure accuracy are key qualities of our vcfo team."
