Eric's Perspective on FLG
FLG is the premier firm providing CFOs to Fortune 1000, start-ups, public, and private clients. My clients not only have me as CFO, they have access to the full partnership’s knowledge and experience. No other firm, in my experience, provides the value that FLG does for their clients.- Eric Hall
