LOCAL BUSINESSMAN JOINS NATIONAL FIRM TO HELP SMALL AND MID-MARKET BUSINESSES AS CFO FOR HIRE
B2B CFO’s Part-Time Chief Financial Officer Concept Helps Entrepreneurs Connect to Top Talent at Affordable Rates and on As-Needed Basis
MIAMI BEACH — September 3, 2010 — Local business owners are leveraging Miami Beach resident Clint Snyder’s 35-year successful track record in financial managementby hiring him as their CFO on a part-time, as-needed basis. Snyder is serving as part-time Chief Financial Officer for companies in diverse industries in the distribution, manufacturing, retail, printing and professional services.
The part-time/as-needed CFO role is a hallmark of B2B CFO, the nation’s largest CFO firm that provides services exclusively to emerging and mid-market companies. Snyder joined B2B CFO as a partner earlier this year becoming the firm’s first partner in Miami Beach. Nationwide, the firm has 171 Partners spanning 39 states. Snyder’s clients benefit from his combination of executive finance and consulting experience supported by the depth of resources provided by the national firm.
Prior to joining B2B CFO, Snyder held the CFO, VP of Finance and Administration, Board member, corporate Secretary and business owner positions with various size companies ranging from start-ups to $140 million in sales. This range has placed him in a position responsible for creating and managing not only finance, but the functions of HR, IT, marketing/sales and production activities roles. Snyder’s background includes working in public accounting, assisting start-up entrepreneurial companies, ownership of several enterprises, serving as CFO to three public companies, raising over $100 million in funding and performing financial turn-arounds in addition to serving as a graduate and undergraduate professor at various colleges and universities.
“We welcome Clint to the B2B CFO Partnership. In many ways he represents a snapshot of the organization: business experience and an entrepreneurial outlook, with deep roots in finance and strong connections in the community,” said Jerry L. Mills, founder of B2B CFO.
In his role as B2B CFOPartner, Snyder offers business owners of privately held growth-oriented businesses the opportunity to have an affordable trusted business advisor. Unlike a contract controller or interim CFO, a B2B CFOPartner works to create a long-term professional relationship to help the company grow its profitability and cash flow.
The economic environment for small businesses in Florida, as in the rest of the country, has proven challenging.
“Although Florida has experienced an unemployment rate over 10 percent for the past year and a half, small and mid-market companies have been the backbone for employment opportunities in a weak environment.” Snyder said. “The small to mid market company has maintained its position through quick adaptation to a recessionary sales trend and alternative funding in the face of evaporating financing resources. Business owners, who know their market, understand their cash flows and costs and react to changing and challenging situations will survive and thrive no matter what adverse economic conditions exist.”
For the business owner, Snyder draws on his broad industry exposure in financial and management reporting, budgeting, analysis and forecasting which enable Snyder to identify the value drivers for a business, implement strategies to increase value, sales and profits and to work with the business owner to develop a successful exit strategy.
Snyder further stated, “As the local partner with the resources of a national partnership I bring to the emerging and mid market company affordable seasoned financial management and insight not normally available to companies of that size. A business owner may have a vision of the company’s future, but that vision is successfully realized with financial guidance to achieve those goals.”
Snyder is a Certified Public Accountant and holds a masters degree in Taxation. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and former Rotarian. Snyder lives on Miami Beach with his wife of 10 years and enjoys ballroom dancing, tennis, ice skating, guitar playing, photography and writing when he is not crunching spreadsheets.
