Wendy Biava founded CFO ReStart, LLC to help start ups and established business owners to maximum shareholder value and profit by simplifying accounting operations, instituting best practices and process, incorporating strategy, focus and budgets, solving complex accounting challenges and building growth opportunities.
The company’s founding principle is to restructure or outsource financial operations to give clients more time to focus on the much more important contribution they make to the world in the product or service they bring to the marketplace. CFO ReStart’s core business units include Interim CFO and Controller Services, Bookkeeping Services, Forensic Accounting Services and Human Resources Consulting and Recruiting. CFO ReStart’s typical client is any entity that wants to improve its processes, impact and/or bottom line. The only requirement is that management is willing to commit the time and resources to making change so that they can enjoy the benefits of the hard work as the entity progresses along the CFO ReStart engagement.
Business Owners that bring amazing products or services to the world shouldn’t be held back because they don’t know accounting and finance.
Our mission is to provide excellent value and accurate and timely financial information to our clients so that our clients can use this information to grow their business and catapult their financial future.
Simply put, clients love us because we treat them like our one-and-only. In a world of slow service and unfulfilled promises, CFO ReStart is a shining light of responsiveness and actionable advice you can count on.
