Should You Rent a CFO?

Should You Rent a CFO?

Raz Silberman

MBA, CPA, Owner & President at American Century Life Insurance Company of Texas

Most small businesses operate without a chief financial officer because the business owner and/or their bookkeeper or accountant handles the financial responsibilities themselves. However, it doesn’t mean your company would not benefit from the services of a CFO, particularly if you are planning the sale of your business in the near future. In fact, CFOs are available on a part-time, temporary basis, and the experience they bring can be invaluable in helping a business owner put their organization in a great position for a successful transition. Our guest talks about his extensive experience as a CFO and his own involvement in several M&A deals. Meet financial expert Raz Silberman on this edition of “Deal Talk.”
