"James did more than "keep the lights on" while our Company conducted a >12 month search for a full-time CFO. He led our Finance department, brought together a strong team, and drove a variety of cost-saving and financing-related projects. He worked effectively with our other executives, built relationships with key external parties, and became familiar with our business on a level that was far deeper than "just the numbers". James provided me with valuable guidance as I ramped up at the Company, and I would gladly work with him again if the opportunity came up. He communicates complex ideas and issues clearly, and is an excellent listener as well. Overall, he went above and beyond expectations for an interim CFO."
