My name is John Coleman. I founded Fiscal Control in 1994 after a 22-year career in corporate finance and another seven as a small business owner/operator. My goal then, as it is now, was to work with energetic companies that need one thing:

Experienced, blue-ribbon finance talent. Maybe you need it for a day, for a month, or for a year. Regardless of the timing, you don't need another six-figure salary or a long learning curve.

An efficient way to augment your finance, admin and operations teams. For some companies I serve as acting CFO, working on an ongoing basis with the accounting staff and executive team. Others bring me in to create order out of chaos, streamline processes or negotiate contracts and financing. And some call me when they need specific accounting skills for an acquisition, merger, divestiture or reorganization.

How is Fiscal Control different from other interim CFO services? Four attributes make my practice a little different than most. First, I'm a shirt-sleeves consultant who designs and does the work myself. Second, I look for practical, rather than theoretical, answers to business problems. Third, I'm fast and I'm accurate: I can often accomplish more in a week than many people can in a month or more. Finally, my goal is to work myself out of a job. When the time is right, you can count on a seamless transition to your personnel.

Review my credentials, my clients and my services. Now that you're here, take a look around. And when you need efficient finance support without the payroll baggage, call or email me. I'll get right back to you.
