America’s Top CFOs Help Secure $251M in PPP Loans

America’s Top CFOs Help Secure $251M in PPP Loans

MESA, Ariz., July 24, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — In the wake of COVID-19 dealing a hard blow to the economy, B2B CFO, a national firm dedicated to providing management advisory services to privately held companies, came forward to offer advice and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) application assistance to privately held businesses across the country. A survey completed by B2B CFO partners indicated that they assisted 519 businesses to receive approximately $251 million in PPP loans during the first three months of the pandemic. “The PPP loans these companies received have kept about 25,000 people employed,” stated Jerry L. Mills, founder and CEO. “Not only have we helped those employees, but by extension their families.” For every job that was protected by PPP loans, there is a family that was able to continue putting food on the table, cover rent and utilities, or otherwise continue on without the uncertainty created by business closures and stay-at-home orders. While it is hard to know exactly how many lives were directly impacted by the loans, Mills says that estimating four people to a household means their work has kept life stable for approximately 100,000 during the pandemic. B2B CFO partners worked with business owners in one-on-one sessions designed to inform them about immediate actions, navigate the PPP loan application process, plan cash flow through closures, and provide valuable insights on how they could restart their businesses. But for the company, which has a history of working with business owners stricken by natural disasters, the consulting sessions were more than a bottom line – the overall impact on each business that received a loan allowed...
