Making Better Financial Decisions for Healthy Growth

Our CFOs will lead you through the “Building Blocks For Improved Decision Making”, starting with the foundation of accurate, timely reporting, and moving up to fine-tuned, actionable data. 

Throughout this process, we will keep you heading towards your goals, and we’ll know quickly if you’re veering off course.

But more than that, our CFOs are right there with you, drawing on years of experience, acting as a sounding board and helping you with critical decision making.

Do You Need a CFO?

If you’ve never had a CFO before… Or if your business is transitioning up or down and you aren’t sure whether you need a full time CFO or a fractional CFO… Michigan CFO Associates will help you sort it out.


As a general rule, if your revenue is less than $1M annually, you’re probably better off meeting with your CPA periodically. The need for a CFO becomes more tangible as businesses enter the “Second Stage” and become self-sustaining entities with increasing volume and complexity of activity.
