About

A partner you can trust

Your passion for your business is personal, full of stories, plans and sacrifice. That’s why we’re so committed to your success, even on the days when you find yourself on an unexpected side road.

We bridge the gap between the CEO and the CFO

CEFO Advisors offers a unique blend of consulting and out-sourced services to assist owners and management teams in all stages of business.

We recognize that your small-to-medium sized business does not need a full-time CFO. What you do need is objective advice to help you make smart decisions based on real information. You need steady guidance as you move toward your goals and the competence of a qualified financial team that operates in sync with you.

We provide the right resources for the right reason at the right time.

Led by Amy Roman, we leverage expertise in strategy, finance and culture, and put business acumen at your fingertips for far less than you would pay to hire the same experience in-house. This level of skill will change the game for your business. 

With CEFO you can afford:

TEAM

Been there.
Done that.

The CEFO team has worked in numerous industries and solved all types of the most daunting challenges. We assign dedicated staff with the experience to meet your unique needs, from routine reports to special projects.

We’ll match the members of our team to the work style and personalities of yours, using CultureTalk profiles to ensure we are aligned. It’s important that we really hear things from your point of view and respect your priorities and expectations.

To each new engagement, we bring a fresh perspective, curiosity and a genuine enthusiasm for what you are building. Check out the broad reach of our CFOs, controllers, staff accountants, and culture consultants.
