With over a year in our relationship we are looking at our businesses differently. Not only because of the new financials, but also the insight on what makes a business successful... which has been a real asset for this company. We’re able to look at our current and past financial performance which enables us to make clear and direct business decisions that will impact the bottom line of our financials in the future.

Thanks for the detailed information on what is driving the successful operations of the company.
Also thank you for all your work that you do. It is an integral part of business that assists the banking side of the relationship and allows me to be armed to do my best in providing timely and effective assistance when needed.

Our CFO has added a level of professionalism and helped people see our CFO come in a couple days a week and show that we’re serious about the budgets, serious about keeping track of where the dollars are going, serious about our desire for growth.
It’s helping us mature as a business and its helping us keep tighter controls.It’s been a pretty good luxury because it’s a part time resource, I have a lot higher quality resource and probably wouldn’t be able to afford it if I just went out and tried to find something on my own.
Honestly, I was very skeptical and reluctant at first. We've been in business for nearly 40 years, and we've managed to get by without a CFO. But Michigan CFO came highly recommended, so I decided to give it a try.
We immediately began to look at our business differently. Our numbers started to make sense from one month to the next, we were able to look ahead and predict our future income, and management started to have confidence in the reports.
But I would say the biggest benefit has been knowing my monthly statements are giving me a more accurate snap shot of our financial performance. We can now identify key ratios between our revenues and expenses which help us to make more informed decisions. Now that we have teamed up with Michigan CFO’s I can focus on the day to day operations of the company because I know our financial health is being properly attended to.

The most surprising thing is that I had a full-time in-house accounting person that worked five days a week at their position, I found that Michigan CFO got all of that work done plus offers new measurable and objective ways of looking at things in frankly less than half the time.
Michigan CFO Associates helped us to implement analysis and planning tools that we have always wanted, but did not have the in-house expertise to create. We now have the ability to manage the business much more effectively on a monthly basis to ensure that we’re hitting our targets. Using a contract CFO 2-4 days a month is the perfect solution for a company our size.
MCM, Inc., Novi, MI
Working with Michigan CFO has helped our company gain a new sense of financial confidence and helped us organize our data more precisely so that we have a better perspective on the profitability drivers in our business. We are now able to plan more strategically and feel much stronger about achieving our financial objectives . We also feel secure knowing that we have an experienced CFO available when we need sound financial advice.
Myron Zucker, Inc., Sterling Heights, MI
After employing a Controller for many years, we determined that we had a need for CFO-level assistance. Our outside CPA recommended Michigan CFO Associates.
After our initial meeting, we were pleased to learn that we could eliminate the full time Controller position. In just two days per week, we are receiving better information and a more pro-active approach, at a lower total cost. This has been very successful and has given us the high level expertise we needed on a cost effective basis.
Any business owner looking for ways to do more with less should look seriously at this alternative.

I strongly recommend a part-time CFO to any business owner who is struggling with trying to do everything and stressing about not knowing whether you are doing things right. They started with a complete overhaul of our company GL and continue with monthly reviews and straight forward helpful analysis of our company performance. Additionally, using a part-time CFO has improved my knowledge of our company's performance and keeps me on track with our goals. They have taken otherwise dormant sales data and turned it into unbelievably informative and effective reports through extensive knowledge of Excel and the ability to extract and present the data in a way that is useful. They have helped my business in more ways than I can mention and I am proud to have someone I trust so much "on call" when I need them.

I am a strategic advisor to small companies and the author of a book on business strategy. As I work with small-company leaders, I often see how they need strategic insight into their finances. Michigan CFO has experience across a range of companies and industries, and is able to highlight important issues to focus on before the opportunity passes or the problem flares up. A small company does not have a lot of resources to spare, and Todd’s advice makes businesses stronger and more valuable.

The reassurance that an experienced CFO is managing our cash flow and financial reporting is a tremendous help, and one less thing we have to worry about.
Maestro Turgeon Group, LLC, Madison Heights, MI
In 2006/7 the owner of a struggling privately owned automotive supplier brought me in to identify problems and develop plans to address them. When it became evident that the financial side of the business was mismanaged, we contracted with Todd Rammler of Michigan CFO Associates.
His performance was outstanding. He is a true professional with expertise in all areas of financial management and accounting. Todd made clear our options and we chose an orderly closure. He managed our relationship with the bank and guided us through the process professionally. Michigan CFO Associates was also instrumental in managing our suppliers and customers during the difficult process.
Todd has a professional and mature style that generates calm during difficult times. He is a person of high integrity and is always frank and honest.
