Why Partners Choose RM

They say variety is the spice of life and that is exactly what Rankin McKenzie offers to its CFOs and Controllers. Our partners are entrepreneurial at heart and enjoy helping growth companies achieve their goals. They have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients in multiple industries and each day is different. The average client engagement lasts 3+ years. Many times, we define client success as when we help the client achieve their goals and the client grows to a size where they need a full-time resource. That is a win for us and for the client, and then we move on to a new and different organization.

During their tenure as a client, our partners are valued members of the client’s team. Our partners build a bond of trust with the CEO because we are focused on growing and financially strengthening the client. Our partners achieve this by drawing on their years of knowledge and experience to really move the needle. Just visit our testimonial page to see what a handful of our clients have to say about us.

Rankin McKenzie is strong because of the sum of its parts – all our partners know each other and rely on each other for feedback, assistance, and support. It makes for a great team!

The Benefits of Working at Rankin McKenzie…
In Our Partners’ Own Words

Rankin McKenzie’s client base is diverse by design. We aren’t pigeonholed into one specific industry or client size, which can lead to rote solutions. Instead, we bring a fresh perspective to every project we take on.

When clients are in times of transition, they need an onsite CFO who functions with a high degree of autonomy and ownership. We meet that need with one very important value-add: each Rankin McKenzie interim CFO is backed by the expertise of our entire team. Drawing from that vast knowledge base lets us leverage best practices that help us deliver the best possible outcome for every client, every time.

The one thing you can count on here is that every day will be different. The fast-paced environment keeps me on my toes and keeps my focus sharp. Clients benefit from the nimble mindset that is nurtured at Rankin McKenzie.

I’ve held positions where I performed essentially the same duties day in and day out. There is no such thing as routine here. Every day I’m called on to leverage different skills and I have benefited as a professional because of that.

At Rankin McKenzie, the professional growth of our partners is as important as client growth. Professionals with strong skill sets and leadership instincts will find a career path here that is both challenging and rewarding.

I came to Rankin McKenzie with solid experience and the notion that there wasn’t much more to learn. With every new client project I take on, I see how flawed that perception was. Stale mindsets have no place here. I’m thrilled to learn from my colleagues and put my skills to work in a range of industries.

Each company I work with has a unique set of needs and challenges just waiting to be turned into opportunities for success. It’s a privilege to partner with client leadership teams and help them move their organizations to the next level.

Our clients are in the midst of significant growth, which means they are poised to affect significant change internally as well as in their industry and beyond. It’s so rewarding to see that happen and to know we played a small role in their success.

Success in this business is all about building strong relationships. Rankin McKenzie has a solid reputation in the community and that gives me an advantage as I develop new business. We work hard to establish the trust of our clients and that trust is the best possible endorsement we could ask for as we expand our business.

Rankin McKenzie has a vast professional network of community partners and referral sources, from attorneys and CPAs to real estate firms and marketing agencies. Being exposed to such a varied group of people at the top of their game expands my knowledge base and inspires me to push myself.

It’s unusual to find a position in the financial industry that offers a flexible schedule and that’s one of the things I enjoy most about Rankin McKenzie. They believe that when you work hard and work smart there’s really no need for a 9 to 5 day.

Finding CFOs and Controllers has never been so easy.
