While operating a company experiencing significant growth the past 2 years, we recognized the need for financial expertise to confirm and assist with our daily decisions. Rankin McKenzie has a fantastic reputation, and we felt lucky to have this resource available here in the Triangle market. Through our vetting process it became obvious that RM was a good fit. We appreciated the selection process used to determine which person would be assigned to our account and could not be happier having Michael Florio as our fractional CFO. He has adapted to our company culture quickly and is doing a great job managing and mentoring our staff. In the past few months, he has provided us with solid insight as well as created financial tools and resources to help us make better business decisions. For any small business that is transitioning to a mid-size structure, I would highly recommend RM.

Due to the growth of our firm over many years, we needed to improve numerous processes especially in our accounting/finance department in order to continue our success or I knew we would eventually retract.  Mike joined us at RKA approximately 4 years ago and brought to us a wealth of experience from various industries which helped to improve not only our accounting/finance team, but he also played a key role on our leadership team.  He helped our firm greatly by developing and mentoring our Director of Accounting and Finance, recommended numerous growth strategies for his team, implemented processes to expedite our month-end closing, improved our reporting, started a new budgeting/forecasting process, took an active role as an ex-officio board member, and was also extremely beneficial to me during the acquisition of our firm by a private equity backed company.  Mike was a steady hand during several difficult situations and provided good guidance which helped me in my decision making. I appreciate everything that Mike has done not only for me but especially for our firm.
