GFO Consulting LLC is a financial management company based in Chalfont, PA, that provides temporary and part-time CFO and controller services to small and midsize businesses.

He is in partnership with A. Douglas Gumula, vice president, whose 30 years in finance includes senior-level positions for Day-Timers Inc. and TWA.

"Our mission is to help our clients meet their needs by providing high quality CFO and Controller services that are tailored for their business and industry," says Gilmore.

(consulting engineers), president of Payroll Express and VP of finance for Merrill Lynch Investment Managers.

Gumula, a CPA and member of the Pennsylvania and American Institutes of Certified Public Accountants, most recently was senior project manager of the marketing department for Day-Timers, where he achieved double the previous recovery rate in disposing of $10+ million in obsolete and slow-moving inventory. Prior to that, he was manager of cost accounting for Day-Timers' finance department. He also held a number of management positions with TWA in their finance and accounting departments, including senior-level positions at a number of their subsidiaries.
