Professional CFO Services – For More Than a Decade

Lescault and Walderman has been providing outsourced CFO services to small-to-medium businesses for more than a decade. Our technical expertise and industry-specific experience have enabled us to deliver professional financial advice and form strong working partnerships with clients in a wide variety of industries. From the beginning, we’ve been focused on supplementing and optimizing client resources to help them achieve their financial and operational objectives. To this end, we are proud to be a Sage Intacct Accounting Partner, with certifications in accounting and implementation.

We’ve accomplished this by:

  • Carefully evaluating client accounting systems/processes
  • Assessing financial reporting
  • Benchmarking operational performance
  • Determining financial management needs
  • Providing effective, affordable CFO consulting solutions

Benefits of Working with LWI

Our clients enjoy the benefits of a financial professional possessing an extensive and wide range of experience and capabilities. In addition, due to the nature of the relationship and work arrangement, our consultants are able to provide a fresh and independent perspective on operational challenges and opportunities.

Because our clients are essentially “renting” a C-level financial expert, they are able to only pay for the services on an as-needed, project-by-project basis. Considering the costs associated with the salaries and benefits of a full-time staff CFO, this offers considerable HR savings.

Our clients benefit from the economy of scale that we are able to offer. Because we maintain a staff of highly-trained and experienced CFOs who are tightly focused on specific assignments and objectives, they are able to operate at a higher efficiency than an in-house professional (who is often forced to wear many unrelated hats and pulled into other projects that don’t directly influence financial objectives).

Our clients receive expert advice on all aspects of financial and fraud risk. LWI CFOs analyze corporate objectives and work to ensure the optimum mix of debt to help companies avoid risky borrowing and overextending. They also carefully monitor internal systems to identify and minimize the risk of fraud.

Our clients get access to more organized and clearly presented financial data. Our team of industry-experienced CFO consultants have a clear understanding of the “big picture”. This helps them to create and present custom financial reporting for a more direct and immediate understanding of various business aspects. This understanding enables management to make smarter, more effective decisions.

As a Sage Intacct Accounting Partner, we are able to offer our clients access to the unique power of Sage's cloud-based system (the AICPA’s only preferred financial management solution). Sage is consistently recognized as one of the premier accounting systems thanks to its extreme flexibility and potential to scale.

What We Do

Today’s CFOs are more than just essential financial tacticians. 
In fact, they serve in many primary roles, including:

Strategic Planner

CFOs need to develop a clear and thorough understanding of the company’s financial situation so they can provide objective guidance to help management develop and implement effective strategies.

Management Partner

CFOs share directly in the responsibilities of corporate management, providing expertise regarding all financial matters and insight into future direction as it relates to financial reporting and data.

Systems Expert

Our consultants are Sage Intacct certified in both implementation and accounting. We've been fully trained and recognized for our understanding and knowledge of this industry-leading cloud-based accounting platform.

Financial Liaison

CFOs represent and communicate the company and its values to investors, analysts, vendors and the community at large. They serve as a critical link in building and maintaining trust in your company’s prospects and abilities.

Analytics & Reporting

CFOs use specialized education and experience to extract meaningful insight from financial data. They then turn this insight into actionable information that can be used to monitor and improve business performance.

Compliance Officer

CFOs need to be able to understand and advise on complex, ever-changing statutory reporting requirements and procedures to ensure ongoing financial and legal compliance to both government and investors.

Professional CFO Services

Unfortunately, many small, growing companies and organizations don’t have the financial resources to engage a full-time CFO to fill these essential roles. That’s why Lescault and Walderman offers Part-Time CFO Services and Virtual CFO Services.
