What Our Services Clients Say
“FLG has been a tremendous partner to GE Ventures and a thought leader to our portfolio company CFOs and CEOs. They bring a wealth of expertise and insight. Their collaboration has made us all better.”Tim Cantwell, CFO, GE Ventures
“I was so pleased to work with FLG Partners at Institute for the Future. Frank Tsai, the partner we used from FLG, is the best nonprofit finance executive and advisor that I have come across in my 20 years in the NFP world. Frank is strategic, fast (had a rapid understanding of our business) and organized (think high value). He can quickly access what is important and what’s not. Finally, Frank brings years of experience to the table from working with a variety of nonprofits of different scales and configurations. He understands everything from strategy and modeling down to the detailed work of NFP accounting, compliance, taxes, audits, legal, and NFP protocols and standards. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Frank (and FLG) again.”Jean Hagan, Executive Producer, Institute for the Future
“Taking over management of Adaptive Path, I needed an experienced partner who advocated for the health of the business and could be a counselor on big decisions. From turnaround of the business through to our acquisition by Capital One, Skip Smith from FLG Partners was that and much more. His work began with focusing us on building back a healthy business step-by-step, improving the accounting and analysis to make sure we made every project and every month, a profitable one. His role matured to shaping our recapitalization and mentoring me and other top managers in the organization as we ran and grew the business. Skip also made key introductions that supported our acquisition process. Throughout it all, I trusted Skip for his straight read on situations, tough advice that I needed to hear, but also for his love of our business and his passion to see it succeed with the leadership of myself and my team. Skip was central to our success.”Brandon Schauer, Head of Emerging Design Practices, Capital One
FLG and its partners deliver truly exceptional value. I have had the pleasure to work with three FLG partners—Mike Gennaro, John Finegan, and most recently Eric Hall—in both the SaaS and Life Sciences industries. Their ability to seamlessly integrate into operations and quickly develop a deep understanding of the company was particularly impressive. Each provided meaningful leadership and thoughtful guidance for the finance function, delivering both tactical and strategic value, including during times of company transition. They partnered with management to win, drove financing activities to successful conclusion, and were tireless in their dedication to company objectives.Lisa Barbot, Current Principal Attorney, Barbot Law
“Trinitas Partners contacted FLG several years ago as we were rapidly expanding our funds and investment portfolio. We were looking for assistance in build our long-term strategic plans, as well as perform an assessment of our finance team so that we would be able to handle our anticipated growth and effectively manage our funds and the investment properties. Our FLG partner, Charlie Noreen, has helped us to achieve this and help develop our finance team over the past several years. We would strongly recommend FLG to any firm looking for experienced financial guidance and leadership to help in a period of rapid growth.”Bill Hooper, Principal, Trinitas Partners
