Question: What is keeping me up at night?
Areas of expertise
Ed, and his network of associates, improve profitability and business intelligence in the following ways:
Rarely have I encountered a professional who has demonstrated the sensitivity, flexibility and quiet confidence which Ed exercised on a daily basis.
Ed created order out of the chaos of our billing system, generated discipline in our financial planning, and helped us open two new offices and handle the complexities of a global marketplace. He did these tasks with good humor, a tolerance for ambiguity, and an eye on the important issues for our practice’s continued financial success.
Ed is a “breath of fresh” air as our finance leader. He has instituted a number of changes that have/will improve our processes and performance. The consummate team player, Ed is approachable, innovative and hard-working.
Ed was engaged as a consultant to assist me at Rave with a complex financial project. Ed did an excellent job resolving the matter and providing clear details for audit support. Due to his solid, efficient work, he was engaged for additional projects which he performed very diligently. Ed’s personable style and ability to build relationships across the organization was a real plus. Ed would be an asset to any client and I highly recommend him.
I have known Ed as a financial professional for the past 20 years. Over those years I have followed his career and from time to time he has sought my guidance. Ed has always searched for strategic insights to better leverage his depth of skills in management, accounting, finance, and systems. As I have come to know him, I have found him both professionally engaging and a skillful communicator in difficult situations. His wry sense of humor is an added an asset. After I retired from Geocomp Corporation as COO, I learned in 2014 of its search for a CFO. I was happy to introduce Ed and recommend him highly. While Ed’s subsequent tenure and mine did not directly overlap at Geocomp, I know his service was highly valued by my successor. I would gladly recommend Ed for all the services he offers.
If you are running a business without a CFO? If so, you are probably struggling to create meaningful financial metrics or worried that you are letting profits slip away in unseen places or frustrated that you can’t benchmark your organization versus competitors. I certainly was until I met Ed. He helped bring clarity to my financials and gave me some simple yet impactful ways to regain control and make informed decisions. Take control Call Ed
Beyond simply being Decision Economics, Inc.’s “steady hand at the wheel” as CFO, Ed had a beneficial impact on each aspect of operations (beyond his core role) that he touched – every employee’s load was that much lighter for Ed’s involvement, most of all my own. During the 9 years I worked for, and with, Ed, his financial expertise, thorough yet approachable management style, leadership, and skill in balancing responsibilities and priorities within a “what’s right/best practices” framework, were very instructive and invaluable to my personal development, ultimately equipping me to assume his responsibilities upon his departure from DE. A better manager and coworker I’ve never known.
It has been a pleasure and an honor to partner with Ed while working at Geocomp. I am the Director of Human Resources at Geocomp and Ed was the CFO. Ed is very collaborative and the first financial person I have work with who really seemed to understand the positive financial impact of employee development and engagement. Ed is willing to invest resources in developing our employees and promoting engagement. These investments are now paying off with an improved bottom line. Both Ed and I were members of the firm’s leadership team. When Ed presented financial data at our leadership meetings he did it with thought and insight. He worked tirelessly to understand the complex financial challenges of the organization. He was not afraid to share information that some of leaders found difficult to hear. Ed has always taken the initiative to play a strategic role in driving the firm’s financial success. He sees the big picture and is eager to develop strategies to improve the bottom line and overcome challenges. I highly recommend Ed for any CFO opportunity.
Ed does an exceptional job at identifying issues and bringing thoughtful analytical tools to develop solutions to business needs. I have hired him on two separate occasions and each time he was truly able to make a significant contribution to our business.
