What is a Fractional CFO? A Fractional CFO is a seasoned financial professional that is highly skilled in the art of financial planning and analysis, strategy development, and organizational design. Fractional CFO's are visionaries that have a strong financial know-how and a broad-based view of the business. Because of their years of experience at the C-level, they often know the levers to pull to drive momentum and create growth within a business. These professionals differ from the typical accountant or CPA in that they know how to align key component of the business to maximize growth and ensure profitability.
By design these leaders are visionaries who have the talent and skill to move a business toward its end goal. Often, they are able to consume large volumes of data and articulate its meaning in easily digestible forms. While Fractional CFO's are frequently involved in policy making, some have helped companies with mergers and acquisitions, and others have connected businesses to capital markets. These thought leaders often perform company wide audits or are deeply involved in aligning the operations with the overall visions of the business.
