Rob was able to come into our business and immediately add value by assisting in assessing the business options ultimately resulting in a very successful valuation and divestiture. Using high financial acumen, analysis, and insight Rob was able to assist in the negotiations and due diligence to optimize the value we obtained for the business. In parallel, he provided support and mentoring to our new Controller in day-to-day accounting activities to ensure the business was performing well and our records were accurate and complete. I would highly recommend contacting The Osborne Group for your Interim CFO needs.
