Does your firm need a Chief Financial Officer?

It’s time to gain better controls and better insight into the financial health of your business. It’s time to save time and money with data-driven decision making.

That’s where the Thinc Strategy team steps in to help.

Most large companies have a CFO on the payroll, but all firms have needs. Typically, that means periodic expertise and monitoring of the firm’s financial health and performance, rather than a full-time CFO on staff.

“Thinc Strategy understands how to match culture with goals.  We tried acquiring companies on our own.  We had limited time and expertise to successfully move through all of the stages in the process.  We brought Thinc in to assist us and later realized, we need to let them guide our efforts.  Three transactions later, we are more valuable, more profitable and still growing.”

“Several years ago, Thinc Strategy sold my company for me – handling every aspect from preparing a list for me to accomplish three years before the sale to handling all the issues after the sale. My broker informed me that it was the best deal he had ever seen, all due to Cindy’s expertise, critical thinking, and superb negotiating skills. I welcome the opportunity to talk to anyone that would like to learn more about Thinc Strategy and Cindy’s remarkable abilities.“
