Can you believe that 2018 is almost over?! I feel like it was just yesterday that we were saying goodbye to 2017 and ringing in this new year. They say that time flies when you’re having fun…and boy did CFO Services Group have fun this year! I can’t believe how much we have grown over these past twelve months.
The CFO Services team is growing. Cheryl Roberson joined our team in January as a Junior Associate. This is Cheryl’s second career – from a former bookstore manager, she decided to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and get real-world experience while doing so. Omar Salama joined in June as a second Junior Associate. Omar had previous work experience in the accounting field and is ready to advance his career while studying for his MBA. Janice Stucke joined in July as our second Lead Accountant. Janice has a strong background in small business lending and accounting, and having now passed the CPA exam, is working directly with our clients to help position them for strategic and strong growth.
We also grew in our team strength, as Lin Walker was promoted to Senior Lead Accountant. As the Senior Lead, Lin is helping our team get even stronger by providing quality control reviews and in-house trainings. She is also working directly with new clients during the onboarding phase.
We also stepped boldly into the digital world. We ditched our brick-and-mortar office and decided to move to a remote working model, which everyone is very happy about. This gives us more time to work with our clients without the stresses of a daily commute.
We also took the opportunity to strengthen our internal processes – from sales and marketing to team management and quality control. We invested time to ensure that our brand continues to expand and our services continue to provide superior value to our clients.
So what’s next for CFO Services Group? What’s in store for 2019?
Well, I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but we have major developments coming in this next year. Upgraded technology, more client engagement and consulting, team expansion, workshops and webinars…all of this and more is in store for 2019.
And so, as we close this year and eagerly anticipate the next year, I thank everyone for their love and support over the past seven years. Our team, our clients, our strategic partners, and our fans…you keep us going and growing every day. Thank you, and see you in 2019.
