“Malcolm goes out of his way to really get to know and understand the business so it’s not just numbers – hecan and has offered proactive advice. Working with EFM has benefited our business immeasurably. I wouldn’t classify myself as being a numbers person. I’m proficient and I understand numbers but to me it’s a sanity check every month which is great. It gives me confidence, and gives my board confidence, that the numbers are correct. I’ve used freelancers in the past and EFM compare really well.”

Malcolm’s work in action

SaaS Business

A venture capital investor had committed seed and first round funding to a SAAS company without a finance director.  The VC’s investment was contingent on an FD being appointed, while the Managing Director was oblivious to the benefits an FD could bring to his business and resistant to what he considered would be outside interference.  I was approached to work with the MD for an initial trial period of three months, delivering one half day each month, and ongoing email and phone support.
