Following the loss of both the CFO and Controller, FLG’s Jim Pardee was referred by a search executive to insure accounting operations continued and to assess the company’s current needs in the financial area. Considering the relatively low level of accounting activity, it was determined that a Controller with SEC reporting experience would be appropriate for the near term. Jim assisted in the selection, recruitment, and transition of such a Controller. During the 7 months of this engagement Jim managed the selection and engagement of a new audit firm, insured proper and timely SEC filings, and worked with the CEO on financing alternatives and strategic alliances.
