Case Study

Interim and Surge CFO for $75M Specialty Transportation Company

"In order to support a recent private-equity backed portfolio company acquisition, an interim CFO was needed to lead the finance function for a specialty transportation provider"


  • A recent acquisition by a leader private-equity group for the specialty company resulted in a void in the Office of the CFO​
  • The finance function was immature from the previous founder-led group and needed a complete overhaul​
  • Additional target companies would need to be integrated and an approach developed to leverage the process​
  • As the Company conducted a search for a full-time CFO, an interim CFO, supported by surge resources was identified as an enabling approach

Bespoke Solutions

  • SLKone deployed a small team of focused resources to fulfill the needs of the Office of the CFO​

  • Specialist resources were deployed to support key activities including: budgeting, cash flow modeling, and dashboard and metric creation

Leading With Results
