You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

M&A- So far in 2016, Dan and Ascent CFO Solutions has helped 3 client companies navigate successful exits providing the founding teams with liquidity. In two cases, the client companies sold to strategic buyers, and in the other the sale was to a PEG. Ascent not only ran the due diligence process, but was involved in the entire selling process.

As a leading Fractional CFO firm, we're all about helping entrepreneurs with managing their Finance and Accounting. We're really good at:
Cash flow management & forecasting
Equity and debt fundraising
Infrastructure

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I love to work directly with really smart, passionate entrepreneurs who recognize the value of doing things right from the beginning. Understanding your cash flow, and what investors are looking for are critical, and my team and I at Ascent CFO Solutions have decades of experience in finance and accounting.

As an Advisor

We're flexible, and we customize solutions to help companies grow.

We are very passionate about entrepreneurship and helping growing companies realize their greatest potential!
