PROFITconsulting To Introduce CFO Outsourcing At Las Vegas Market
Furniture World Magazine
By David McMahon
PROFITconsulting announced the launch of a new professional service called CFO Outsourcing, to be introduced at the PROFITsystems/ PROFITconsulting space in Building C, 4th flloor, WHFA Retail Resource Center during the Las Vegas Market.
"The program," noted PROFITconsulting's Wayne McMahon, "will help small business owners get the high level of financial expertise that only big corporations can afford.
"In the past 15 years,"he continued, "after visiting hundreds of operations, we have seen that small businesses, for the most part, have questionable" financial information. In many cases, their financial statements are ignored all together. For those that do produce financials, very often they have materially misstated information. Businesses wait for their tax accountant to prepare their annual return. By that time – it’s far too late! The prior year is long gone."
The new program includes CFO services provided by Wayne and David McMahon. Wayne holds his Certification in Management Accounting (CMA) and has previously run his own accounting firm. David holds degrees in Economics and Business Administration and is a member of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). Combined, they have worked in the home furnishings industry for over 30 years and have helped thousands of operations. In addition to running PROFITconsulting at PROFITsystems, they also facilitate PROFITgroups, PROFITsystems’ peer performance groups. Their ongoing clients are among the most profitable in the industry.
