Fractional Controller

"An accomplished Fractional Controller seamlessly fills the gap between the limitations in accounting capabilities of a bookkeeper and the strategic leadership of a CFO. While these roles are within the same CFO suite, the skill sets that set them apart are quite different." -John Frank, CEO of Third Road Management

  2. Conducts a search to find a full-time controller.
