Service provides on demand financial planning, controls and execution for companies in the Central and Western New York markets.

Four seasoned financial executives have announced the creation of Specialty CFO, which provides on-demand accounting, financial and management services to businesses in Western and Central New York.

Mark Hoffman, John Lauchert, Jean Gaulin and Anthony Rider, seasoned CPA’s with a combined total of more than 100 years in the financial accounting and management field, are the principals in the new firm.

“The firm is usually first called in when there is a crisis involving financial systems, internal controls or financial reporting,” says Hoffman. “These crises are often caused by positive factors such as expansion or acquisition,” he noted. Typically, one of Specialty CFOs executives will assess the situation and design and execute a solution that is lasting. “We are only around as long it takes to resolve the issue and establish the resources, systems and procedures to enable the business to thrive,” said Rider.

“The founders recognize that today’s increasingly dynamic business climate makes it extremely difficult for businesses and not-for-profit organizations to always have the right financial accounting and executive resources,” Hoffman said. “Our experience enables us to provide solutions that are flexibility and cost-effective.”

Specialty CFO will initially focus on business and not-for-profit organizations in the Western and Central New York. “With an average of 25 years experience in meeting businesses’ financial needs, we are well-prepared to effectively and efficiently meet the financial challenges faced by our clients,” said Lauchert, whose office is in Central New York.

Each of the founders is currently serving this market. Said Gaulin, “We knew each other from past professional and business experiences. It became clear that by joining forces we’d make a great team and provide outstanding solutions to our clients.”

Specialty CFO’s current client portfolio includes companies in manufacturing, construction, logistics, business services, real estate, oil and gas industries, and not-for-profit organizations.
