You get executive level results at a fraction of the price of a full time employee and get implementation services that go beyond what a consultant can offer. We become a long term trusted partner supporting our clients in achieving their specific goals.
Using a Fractional Executive involves using a non-employee executive resource to fill gaps in executive leadership and support some or all of the Financial and Strategic functions of a company. This may be on an ongoing, part-time or FRACTIONAL basis, full-time defined period covering an absence of staff or as a project resource
At C-LEVEL Services, we offer experts to fill your needs!

- Get great return for your investment ROI
- Tap collective best practices at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives.
- Only pay for what you need, when you need it.

In todays challenging business environment, complex accounting and financial situations can distract senior management from its core business. Poor profitability often follows when financial and accounting issues strain the organization.
A Part-Time CFO for Long Term Success
Organizations faced with these challenges can now access higher level talent without the ongoing costs of an experienced, full-time CFO. The ongoing cost of a part-time CFO is a fraction of a full-time CFO.
Valuable Insight, Improved Financial Controls
Small companies need strong financial management every bit as much as large companies. The problem is justifying the high salary and benefits of an experienced CFO. Additionally, the smaller company probably does not have a daily need for this higher level of expertise. Small businesses can gain valuable insight & organizational control by partnering with an experienced finance professional on a part-time basis. C-LEVEL Services takes the time to understand your business and provide this insight in a cost-effective manner.
Contracting a CFO for Real Value
Let us add real value to your organization by:
- Providing dependable strategic leadership.
- Adding credibility through experience and objectivity
- Providing a fresh perspective on data/systems/controls/efficiency/industry norms
- Acting as a sounding board for senior management in the decision making process
Working with C-LEVEL Services can immediately improve the profitability of your company if it is hampered by limited financial expertise, weak accounting practices or unclear strategic planning. Everyday companies, operating without the guidance of an experienced CFO, lose the opportunity to maximize their potential. Is your company losing out?

C-LEVEL Services has worked with a broad range of companies including venture-backed startups, family owned businesses, mid-market companies and even not for profit enterprises.

C-LEVEL Services charges by the engagement or hour with no minimum fee required and no continuing contractual obligations.
The location depends on the engagement. We tend to work frequently at the client company’s offices. This allows us to effectively respond to your questions and issues on a face-to-face basis and provide valuable services to your employees. However, C-LEVEL Services staff can work offsite with periodic update meetings as needed.
We offer a wide range of services for our clients including short term financial projects, transactional assistance, company transformation training and support, plus sales and business development training and support.

The C-LEVEL Services is a part time fractional resource that stays with a company as long as our client desires. This depends on each client’s specific needs. Fractional CFO relationships may last for years due to the close advisory relationship that develops. For startups, the C-LEVEL Services team is most often used on a part-time basis and is transitioned to in house staff as their positions grow to require full-time attention. For larger clients, the C-LEVEL Services team is often used as an interim resource to back fill for the absence of a full-time employee or to lead a project. In other cases, C-LEVEL Services staff is used to augment a client’s team when additional resources are needed or to provide particular expertise from time to time. Engagements range from a few months to several years.
Yes, C-LEVEL Services provides Human Resource solutions that complement C-LEVEL Services Financial and Administrative Infrastructure services. Our HR expertise has been developed from the trenches of day to day management and we help create inspired teams using best practices for hiring, employee policies, training and compensation planning.
No, C-LEVEL Services is not a CPA firm. C-LEVEL Services typically serves as an alternative to a full-time in-house finance executive. While we can help a company prepare for these kinds of activities, tax returns and audits are activities performed by an outside independent CPA firm with whom we have an excellent relationship. In fact the party performing the external independent audit relies on the internal work of the company. C-LEVEL Services can help select the right external CPA firm resource and work with the company to negotiate these services and ensure that all internal deliverables are finalized to ensure a smooth audit.
Yes, C-LEVEL Services provides interim and fractional financial and operational support on a professional services basis. While we do help our current clients’ transition to full-time personnel when they are ready, and often help our former clients locate additional resources when needed, we are not focused on the business of professional placement.
