I (Brigitte) am an experienced, hands-on fractional CFO.
In the past, I was responsible for full fiduciary financial management of international entities in Fortune 500 companies. After decades working in some of the best run corporations, I intuited that the fundamentals of these most successful companies would also apply to managing finance for small businesses ... And I never looked back!
I (Mike) graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1983 with a double BS in Chemistry & Psychology and from UT McCombs Graduate School of Business in 1988 with a double concentration in Finance & Management Science. I spent decades managing financial projects for Fortune 500 companies, state pension funds and startups. I am passionate about financial modeling and finance best practices. I am dedicated to bringing to startups the know how and expertise that used to be reserved for Fortune 500 companies.MORE STORIES TO COME ....
"UFO tools gave me visibility into my cash flow, and I regained control instead of trying to guess my cash position at the time of payroll. In addition, by using UFO’s pricing model I am now for the first time able to give customers quotes and at the same time estimate my costs for every job in real time. This keeps me from accidentally selling at a loss. Brigitte’s broad knowledge of business was extremely useful to me."
"Brigitte brings sound best practices, financial discipline, and an operational acumen to growth minded companies. I greatly appreciate all that Brigitte brings to an engagement, and would highly recommend her. I always felt extremely confident in Brigitte’s abilities to execute on the numerous requirements on a consistent basis, freeing me and team up to focus on other areas of our core business. But perhaps Brigitte’s greatest attributes, are her integrity and honest communication…an even rarer find that I have appreciated in her."
"As head of finance, Brigitte is an amazing strategic contributor to the entire organization as she presents both financial data and performance / productivity metrics that are extremely helpful to management. Brigitte throughly understands the business and often recognizes problems / challenges early and always comes to management with possible solutions. Everyday I work with Brigitte improves the odds of our success."
