Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
Mortgage Executive Consulting LLC has joined forces with Texas CFO Group, LLC to offer expanded CFO and Controller services for mortgage bankers nationwide. Matt Kiker from Mortgage Executive Consulting and David Brown, CPA of Texas CFO Group are seasoned mortgage industry CFOs with expertise in all areas of the mortgage origination business. Together they provide everything a mortgage company needs from a CFO, without the overhead of another executive compensation package.
In today’s mortgage industry, many companies, especially independents, cannot afford to retain a full time Chief Financial Officer (CFO), but they still need the expertise a seasoned CFO brings to the business. Other mortgage banks have a CFO that could use some help. Mortgage Executive Consulting’s Managing Director, Matt Kiker states, “We are not going to be a company’s auditor and we are not going to prepare tax returns. We are two CFOs with years of hands-on experience in the mortgage industry offering project based consulting for executives and accounting services that audit and tax preparers do not offer.”
Some clients need help cleaning up their financial records and restructuring accounts. David Brown adds, “Now companies can get help implementing the plan and staying on course. Once the short, but intense process of our assessment is complete and the improvements we propose are implemented, we can help the company stay on track with a custom maintenance plan that can be as extensive or abbreviated as is needed.”
Matt went on to say, “David Brown brings technical accounting expertise that further expands the depth and breadth of our accounting offerings. Mortgage Executive Consulting is committed to providing the very best in advisory services for the mortgage industry. Accounting is the natural place to begin any improvement initiative, and a clean set of books is like having a clean desk when we start our day.”
Matt Kiker has decades of management experience he gained through working and managing most areas within mortgage companies large and small. He worked six years as a mortgage company CFO and another six years as the executive in charge of corporate operations and strategic development at a large independent mortgage company. He earned a BBA in Finance from Baylor University.
David Brown, a Certified Public Accountant, has over 30 years of diverse senior financial executive experience with a focus on middle market companies. David has served as a CFO or senior financial executive for companies in mortgage banking (both public and private), securities brokerage, office furniture distribution and internet marketing. David spent the first six years of his career on the audit staff at Ernst & Young. He earned a BBA in Accounting from Texas A&M University.
David and Matt are long time colleagues and friends. Several years ago, Matt was hired by a board of directors as the CFO of a mortgage company on the brink of failure. Two of the many problems to be solved were the slow close of the books and the loose accounting standards the company was using. Matt called David to help bring order to the accounting system and the financial statements. David assisted by developing a system for closing the books more quickly and then providing all the entries required to bring the accounting to a place where the financial reports accurately represented the finances of the company.
David went on to become the CFO of WhiteFence while Matt remained CFO of a mortgage bank. Coincidentally, both of the companies where David and Matt were serving as CFOs were sold and both CFOs decided to start consulting. Since they had already teamed up in the past, it made perfect sense to offer the same systems and expertise that they perfected at their companies to the mortgage banking community at large.
Mortgage Executive Consulting offers a full menu of management services for mortgage bankers and advises executives in accounting as well as the areas of capital markets, operations, warehouse banking, information technology, vendor management, due diligence, transitional management and employee engagement. Visitors to the company’s web site can request complimentary copies of two recent articles on accounting in the company’s Management Series for mortgage executives at http://www.MortgageExecutiveConsulting.com.
