A successful national restaurant company hired A&M to advise and support the efforts of the current CFO in making a transition to new owners with a more leveraged balance sheet and much higher reporting demands. Upon the CFO’s retirement shortly thereafter, A&M assumed an interim CFO role to direct and oversee significant transformational initiatives in the finance and accounting organization.

These initiatives included reducing the time to close monthly financials from 60 days to 12 days, retaining a new audit firm and managing the first-time thru audit work, implementing changes in accounting policies, revamping the chart of accounts and financial reporting, designing and implementing new financial systems, improving internal controls and restructuring organizational reporting relationships to improve efficiency.

The results of these efforts, including the subsequent hiring of a permanent CFO, solidified the company’s relationships with its new constituents and positioned the finance and accounting organization for success in supporting the company’s aggressive growth plans.
