Andrew as an EFM Finance Director

EFM Finance Directors are not ‘just accountants’. They provide excellent incisive information on a more timely basis to reorganize your business and aid your decision-making process. They implement plans to enhance profit margins, provide strategic support and assist with business plans, funding proposals and other key areas that affect your profitability and cash flow.

An EFM Finance Director takes an active role, your business views and opinions might be challenged – from pricing to distribution strategy, from marketing plans to remuneration – to ensure your business plan and direction is financially viable.

No business deserves to be without a Finance Director, even if for one day a month. An EFM Finance Director will be the credible sounding board your business needs to take it to the next level and our business model ensures that your finance function is cost-effective and efficient.

“A win – win solution is always the best outcome in any long-term relationship. When I discovered EFM I knew joining the network was the best way for me to achieve my goal of developing a portfolio career leveraging the experience I had built up over my career as a Finance Director.

As an Associate I get the best of both worlds – I have the credibility that comes from belonging to a highly professional network, yet get to run my own business within that environment.

I also know any clients I acquire can take comfort from the fact I belong to a group that not only supports its’ members, but also offers a variety of services that might be relevant to them, that greatly exceeds what I could provide if I operated as a sole trader. So, from what I can see, everyone wins.”
