Part Time Fractional CFO Services

Fractional CFO Services Provided by Progressive Business Consultants


In today's dynamic business environment, companies often need the expertise of a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) to manage their financial strategies and operations. However, not all businesses, especially small to mid-sized enterprises, can afford to hire a full-time CFO. This is where Progressive Business Consultants steps in with their Fractional CFO services, offering an affordable and flexible solution to meet your financial management needs.

What is a Fractional CFO?

A Fractional CFO is an experienced financial professional who provides CFO services on a part-time, retainer, or contractual basis. Unlike a full-time CFO, a Fractional CFO offers the flexibility to work with multiple companies, providing strategic financial guidance and support tailored to each business's specific needs. This approach allows businesses to benefit from high-level financial expertise without the expense of a full-time executive.

Benefits of Fractional CFO Services

  1. Cost Efficiency: Hiring a full-time CFO can be costly, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises. Fractional CFO services provide a cost-effective alternative, allowing businesses to access top-tier financial expertise without the burden of a full-time salary and benefits.

  2. Flexibility: Fractional CFOs can work on a schedule that suits the business's needs, whether it's a few hours a week, a few days a month, or on a project-by-project basis. This flexibility ensures that businesses receive the right level of support when they need it most.

  3. Expertise and Experience: Fractional CFOs bring a wealth of experience from working with various industries and companies. This diverse background allows them to offer innovative solutions and best practices to address unique financial challenges.

  4. Objective Perspective: As external consultants, Fractional CFOs provide an unbiased view of the company's financial health. Their objective analysis can identify issues and opportunities that internal teams might overlook.
