Often, CEO's are hired for their strategic vision and expertise in a specific field. That's where we come in and be of assistance, as attested by most CEO's who've benefited from our services. We materialize an organization's vision on a most practical / actionable level, in a most effective, timely manner, through established relationships, interpersonal skills, and technical expertise. From managing finances, to improving communication with the board, from refining financial presentation techniques to understanding internal controls, from bringing clarity/transpareny to finances to ensuring that CEOs are receiving pertinent, accurate and timely information enhancing and expediting their decision making abilities... we can help. Results are often notable within weeks, not years. Our work is guranteed to keep an organization's finances healthy for five years after we've completed our engagement. We facilitate contract negotiations with County and State agencies such as CDCR, LACDMH, DCFS, Health Care agencies in different counties including Los Angeles, Alameda, Contra Costa, San Diego, and Orange counties. We provide easy-to-understand, independent financial analyses in major decision making processes such as capital improvements and campaigns. We assist in securing financing, conduct feasibility of new service contracts and/or the discontinuation of certain others that have become detrimental over the years. Overall, we improve efficiency.
We are here to serve the unique needs of your nonprofit organization with customized solutions.
