Leading Fractional CFO Services Provider Expands Presence into the Carolinas

Metro Charlotte, Triad and Triangle Teams in Place

Columbus, OH − December 2, 2020 − FocusCFO announced today its growth into the Carolinas, offering fractional CFO Services to small and medium-sized businesses in the greater Charlotte, Triad (Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point) and Triangle (Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill) metropolitan areas. The company has 20 years’ experience helping entrepreneurs with cash flow, business risk, and scalable growth and value.

“I am honored to be associated with this leading organization and its many accomplished professionals,” said Michael Stier, Area President based in Charlotte. “I look forward to building relationships with the many small business owners and entrepreneurs in the Carolinas, along with the other organizations here who seek to help, mentor and support them,” he added.

Support is provided on a fractional basis, meaning clients get all the advantages of a full-time CFO, but at an affordable price, typically working 1 – 2 days/week. CFOs come with years of industry experience, seasoned and ready to apply best-practices, to make an impact as a trusted member of the management team.

“Especially during these difficult economic times, many small businesses are grappling with cash flow and operational constraints,” said Bill Goebel, Area President based in Greensboro. “FocusCFO has helped hundreds of businesses gain control and ease the stress for business owners,” he continued.

“This gives entrepreneurs running small and medium sized businesses a level of internal CFO support they never envisioned they would have access to,” said Brad Martyn, Founder and CEO. “We believe small business is the backbone of this nation’s economy and our entire team is focused on helping them grow and build value.”

The company said plans include further expansion in the Carolinas and Georgia over the next two years.

FocusCFO Supports Over $100M PPP Loans and Pro Bono Services Provided to Over 70 Companies & Individuals

Columbus, OH − May 28, 2020 − FocusCFO announced today they have helped their clients and others with over $100 million in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and other CARES Act loans since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. Businesses receiving loans were both for-profit and non-profit organizations, all with less than 500 employees. Applications were processed by over two dozen banks in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Kentucky.

“We are always passionate about helping business owners, but even more as they began to navigate early stages of the pandemic,” said Brad Martyn, Founder of FocusCFO. “The PPP loans were critical for employers to have some financial cushion and peace of mind so they could sustain their businesses while managing the impact of COVID-19. The application and subsequent forgiveness process have been confusing and chaotic. Nonetheless, we found it rewarding to help our clients with the vital funding and their on-going cash flow planning.”

In addition, as part of their commitment to supporting small business in the communities where they operate, FocusCFO provided pro-bono services to over 70 companies and individuals hit especially hard by pandemic closures and regulations. These complimentary services involved PPP applications, cash flow forecasting and stress modeling.

“Hundreds of hours of pro bono services have been provided and we’re really proud of that,” said David Bourke, Director of Client Services. “The small business community has been hit hard by the pandemic and we’re doing what we can to support as many as we can.”

In addition to pro bono services, FocusCFO provides complimentary resources and cash flow tools to help business owners through their website.

“Especially during business interruptions like the pandemic, the ability to access cash and understand cash flow becomes critical to every business and can determine whether a business survives,” said Martyn. “Our CFO’s are very skilled at forecasting and managing cash flow, and identifying and correcting risk. We look forward to helping our clients through the remainder of this business uncertainty so they will come out of it stronger than before.”
