Frequently 
Asked
Questions

  A CFO is an executive partner to the CEO. They advise on issues like:

  • What steps do we need to take to gain 5 points on profit margin?

  • How much can the company afford to grow?

  • What acquisition targets are financially sound and complement our strategy?

  • Based on current state, what does our financial profile look like 1,3,5 years from now?

  • How can we double the size of the company?

  • Are we overpricing our services or are we just inefficient in delivery?
 

As a CEO, you’ll know when growing pains begin to impede your operations (a lot of frustration) that it’s time to hire a CFO.  

It’s also based on whether you’re a product-led (SaaS) vs. service-based (Consulting/Agency). A good rule of thumb is when you’re over $1.0M in revenue, then it would be beneficial to onboard a CFO on a part-time basis. Once at $20M+ and your accounting function has been built out, you should consider hiring a CFO full time.

 

Traditional CFOs are accountants (CPA) by trade but that model has been disrupted since the demand for operations-focused CFOs has grown. 

If you’d prefer to have an accounting-focused CFO with the sole objective of clean books, an efficient monthly close, and 150% dedication to implement every subjective detail of accounting law, then go with a CPA. However, if you want to 2x the size of your business, you’ll be better off with someone who has a background in investment banking, private equity, consulting, or corporate finance. 

The trade offs between the two is having a compliance mindset vs. growth.
