In an effort to bolster its services for PR agencies and other creative services firms, Gould+Partners announced the introduction of its Part-Time CFO division.
The new unit adds to Gould+Partners skill sets, which includes M&A representation and Management Consulting focusing on valuation, profitability and utilization, among other areas.
“For the last two years we’ve been encouraging the need for part-time CFOs for PR firms and other creative services agencies,” said Rick Gould, CPA, J.D., managing partner of Gould+Partners. “They often become available as a result of a merger or acquisition, which have been accelerating in recent years.”
Gould added, “Firms are calling me from all over the U.S. and Canada, asking me to refer a part-time CFO, defined as a very experienced financial person who can handle every aspect of accounting systems, time management, profitability planning and budgeting. The qualified people who we have available are limited and mostly based on the East coast.”
Gould+Partners welcomes resumes of qualified CFOs and COOs looking for part-time work, such as one day a week or several days a month. The administration of the CFO jobs will operate under the G+P umbrella.
The debut of Gould+Partners Part-Time CFO comes on the heels of G+P launching a London/UK division in order to facilitate transactions between UK-based firms and U.S-based firms.
