    Interim or Fractional Controllers

    Help with Running Your Business, Improving your Accounting Systems, and Hiring a Full-Time Controller.


Help with Running Your Business, Improving your Accounting Systems, and Hiring a Full-Time Controller

Like our CFO Advisory Services group, our Controllers provide part time, interim, and project-based financial expertise to small and medium-sized businesses. In general, the work they do is focused on establishing and managing a smoothly running accounting department, and the preparation of accurate, useful, and timely financial reports to management and compliance entities. We also provide experienced consultants to set up accounting departments, or support existing accounting functions by assessing and improving their operations and systems. Our controllers have the skills to quickly identify best practices for your organization. The value to you is having someone who has truly “been there before” and can navigate through the implementation or improvement process as efficiently as possible.

If you are looking for a permanent, full-time Controller, our Search Group can assist you in finding the perfect fit for your business. CFO Selections® is a retained search firm specializing in the placement of executive, senior, and middle management team leaders exclusively in the areas of accounting and finance. We work with all industries and with organizations ranging in size from small, emerging companies to Fortune 500 firms, both privately and publicly held.
