A Message from our CEO
I started FSFinancial to fill two needs in my life; (1) to find a job in accounting that is just as rewarding as public accounting, but with a true “balance” and (2) to allow me to continue serving the client base and industry that I have grown to love.
Over the years, many of my clients had asked me to be their Controller, CFO, General Manager, or CEO. I would always respond jokingly, “I’m not sure if you are big enough to afford me or keep me busy for over a month”. It was not too long after one of those conversations I had a revelation. If one company couldn’t afford me as their CFO, maybe these four loyal clients could share me. I thought that they could share not only my time and my many years of expertise in the Telecom industry, but they could also share the experiences I have on a daily/weekly/monthly basis with my other clients. Almost a cooperative of sorts, where clients of like industries, experiences, and trajectories could benefit from sharing ideas, projects, and analysis. Thus, FSFinancial, LLC was born.
I began the company with four dedicated clients, whom I thank as much as possible for taking a chance on me. I worked diligently during those early days. Once word spread about my endeavors, interest started to grow. This led to the hiring of employees, expansion of office space, growth in the customer base, and the establishment of flexible (and in some cases, fully remote) working environments.
At FSFinancial, our focus lies in being an employee-centric organization. We emphasize the client service principles I acquired from the public accounting industry, combined with the employee service mindset instilled in me by my mentors, supervisors, and clients. I firmly believe that employees should connect not only with their clients but also with their colleagues and leadership at all levels. Communication plays a pivotal role, especially in the current remote work environment. I am of the opinion that everyone should sense that they are a valued part of the family.
