Whatever the business situation you are facing, we’ve seen it. Whatever the transaction, we’ve done it.
FLG Partners provides to CEOs and Boards, high-value, interim and permanent CFO leadership. We operate exclusively at the C-level. Our partners deliver turnkey solutions for management teams, from part-time, interim and W2 full-time CFOs to advisory board support, project management, finance team mentoring and venture-backed boot camps.
FLG CFOs develop strategic financial plans for private and public companies as well as nonprofits that align with changing business priorities and source the capital to fund these initiatives whether through M&A, public market financing or private placements. Our partners can address the full range of client operating finance needs including (but not limited to) building infrastructure, managing growth, evaluating restructuring options and IT system investments, developing tax strategies, planning international expansions and identifying new business opportunities and solutions. Our CFOs are cross-functional leaders and provide high quality proactive and strategic business guidance.
Typical client situations in which FLG partners add value include:
Our flexible engagement options address the full continuum of need across our clients.
Part-time CFO Leaders
Small companies rarely need or can afford a full-time, truely senior CFO, yet they do need access to efficient, expert leadership. FLG provides the expertise you require, scaled to match your needs as they change, analogous to the way you use outside legal counsel.
Interim CFO Leaders
When you’re faced with a CFO vacancy, FLG will step in as the interim CFO so that your search can be conducted deliberately, selectively, and without haste, knowing your company is protected and led by a highly experienced financial veteran.
Full-Time W-2 CFOs
A unique aspect of our practice is that a number of the partners are the full-time, employed officers of their employer. They remain an active partner in FLG, and bring the full experience and resources of FLG to bear for the benefit of their employer.
If your company is facing a transaction or financing for which your incumbent financial executive lacks prior experience or sufficient bandwidth, we will lead them through the process to a successful, efficient conclusion. Whatever your transaction, we’ve done it.
Board and Advisory Support
FLG often advises CEOs, CFOs, boards, audit committees, investors and lenders on matters including complex accounting issues, operating strategies, due diligence, and restructurings. In addition, partners sit on boards, typically on the audit and finance committees.
Mentoring and Coaching
Often at the behest of the CEO or Board, we provide mentoring and coaching to board members and across the C-Suite. Long experience at the senior executive level gives us the credibility and perspective to be an effective advocate and mentor for rising executives.
