Fortress Information Security, a VC backed IT security company, was looking for an Interim Controller/VP Finance to finalize 2016 accounts to prepare for external audit and set up 2017 budget. This entailed project management support including redesigning and streamlining QuickBooks accounts for four entities and process improvements on AP/AR using Concur. Occasional travel to Orlando, FL would be required, so they were preferably looking for someone local to the area.
Fortress found Sean R. through Graphite, a former Big-4 Florida-based finance and accounting executive with 20+ years of experience in managing financial operations and reducing organizational risk through comprehensive accounting, reporting, financial controls implementation and financial analysis. The project was originally scoped at 4 weeks, but due to the value that Sean brought with his advanced FP&A and QuickBooks experience, Fortress continued to work with Sean for an additional 8 months and the project is still ongoing.
