“James helped Planet leading several major initiatives to reduce expenses, raise finances and build sales models. He succeeded very well in these. Furthermore, I really enjoyed working with James. I’d highly recommend James to anyone who needs CFO services similar to our needs.”

“Honestly I put James up there in the top 1% of the CFOs that I’ve worked with. I think James is absolutely fantastic at understanding the numbers, understanding the process, understanding the business, and then being that thought partner for the CEO, that can sit in the room and participate in a conversation and bring a perspective that others don’t have. And that is absolutely huge.”

“I’ve had a great experience working with James. In under six months, we’ve gotten to know each other really well and that’s down to him being open and being available to talk through both how he operates as Interim CFO at Planet and in his own company. From both sides of the equation that I’ve experienced, I think very highly of him. I think he is definitely one with high integrity, never goes back on his word and his follow up has always been on point. I completely trust his skill sets in terms of working with companies across different stages and the experience I’ve had with him on a later stage company shows that he’s got some breadth – it’s not just a small series A company where he’d be tapped in, he can work with companies that are generating ten, twenty, thirty million in revenue.”

“Working with James’ people, we were able to tackle key questions that enabled our organization to lay a strong foundation for financial management. Their scorecard was very helpful and their advising on core components, such as when to bring accounting functions in-house, proved deeply valuable.
