I'm Chris Benjamin, Rogue CFO.
What is a "Rogue CFO"?
"The term "rogue" may be used to describe an independently-minded person; one who rejects conventional rules of conduct in favor of following personal values. "
I'm not your everyday CFO. Anyone who works in the startup and small business world knows that it takes a different breed of person to thrive in a high energy, high stress, high growth world. Entrepreneurs are creative people, don't you want a management team that shares the same passion, creativitiy and energy? That's my business model: think outside the box, act outside the box, and build companies that thrive.
15+ years experience in Accounting, ERP systems & controller functions. I hold an MBA from a top 20 school (University of WA), and have focused on growth stage companies & start ups. I have a passion for bringing my expertise to these types of companies to help them fill a need.
I primarily help growing ventures as a part time, outsourced CFO. Financial reporting, best business practices, SEC reporting (10K, 10Q, 8K, etc.), IPO's, M&A and much more are how I get involved.
Bring C-level management experience to your growing company!
