What People Say About Me


Edward Musmon served as the CFO for Boston Neurosciences, a start-up, venture-backed, medical device company. Boston Neurosciences was a small company and a great deal was requested from each member of management. Ed contributed far more than his title might suggest. He provided invaluable operational and strategic insights as well as excellent financial controls, advice and wisdom. He is thoughtful, dedicated and indefatigable. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
T. Forcht Dagi, MD, DMedSc, DHC, FRCSEd

Former CEO - Boston Neurosciences, Inc.

Ed has been an absolute asset to our business. He has a great understanding of the core fundamentals, as you might expect, but he also goes much deeper than that. He has an ability to understand the business strategy and drive bring forward ideas on how to accelerate and optimize the business. I appreciate his contributions to the team and look forward to his continued impact to our company..

Jason Tabeling

CEO - AirTank Inc.

Ed has been a fantastic financial solution as a growing Medical Device startup. His services have enhanced our Forecasting tools and given us the confidence to make crucial business decisions. Ed has provided Beeken Biomedical with insight on cashflow projections, budget development, cap-table management and much more. Most importantly, Ed is a great person and colleague. I highly recommend his services.

Jeff Valdes

Director, Business Development - Strategic Partnerships| Beeken Biomedical

We are a rapidly growing startup without dedicated financial resources. Ed stepped in, rapidly understood our business, and was able to upgrade our financial tracking and forecasting tools for better visibility on cashflow, deferred revenues, and financing needs.
Hudson Gilmer

CEO - Line Vision

Ed was referred to us by another Financial Consultant at the end of 2018.  We were experiencing some difficulties with our new accounting system, which he helped us work through.  He continues to work with us, and his involvement has been a big part of why our accounting team continues to run smoothly.

I am glad that he continues to be part of our Miano team, and I would recommend to others looking for Sr level team player.

Max Gouveia

President - Miano Construction Corp

Ed was available just when we needed him most. He came up to speed with the unique attributes and idiosyncrasies of our business at a near supernatural rate and was providing critical assistance in a very short amount of time. I heard nothing but stellar feedback from the many staff who interacted with him, likely do to his strongly team-oriented, collaborative nature. I would wholeheartedly endorse Ed!
Seth Wilkinson

Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioner and President of Wilkinson Ecological Design, Inc.

Ed Musmon (I Need A CFO) came highly recommended and was recently the interim CFO at a client of mine where I am a fractional COO and strategy/management consultant. He flat out exceeded our expectations and performed brilliantly.

A unique talent, Ed demonstrates the capability to rapidly come up to speed in a complex environment and be contributory on day one, and everyday thereafter. He thoughtfully listens and absorbs the nuances of a client’s ecosystem and the culture into which he fully immerses himself to produce timely, accurate results using realistic assumptions presented in the most positive problem-solving way.

His pleasant collegial and congenial manner provides the perfect cover for a no-nonsense professional who gets things done while taking the team along with him. He has an intuitive understanding of what’s important and wastes no time in getting to the root of issues and dealing with them decisively. Ed not just deals with the tasks at hand, but also visualizes what’s coming and anticipates the needs of both leadership and the enterprise.

I highly recommend Ed Musmon (I Need A CFO) to anyone needing an intelligent financial executive bridge at a crucial time in their organization’s evolution. It was a pleasure to work with Ed and I genuinely look forward to collaborating with him in future client opportunities. Ed is the guy you want in the foxhole with you.

Per John Ostman

Fractional Executive & Business Advisor at Ostman Business Strategy, LLC (Jonn and I worked together at Wilkinson Ecological Design, Inc.)

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.
William Rizzo

Chief Operating Officer, Geocomp, Inc.

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.
Robb Googins

Board Member at Sanborn Head & Associates - June 6, 2018, Robb was Ed’s mentor

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
Eric Warner

Sales Training, Keynotes, Sales Process, Leadership & Management Development, Business Development, Hiring Process - May 22, 2018, Eric was a client of Ed’s

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.
Brad Rosenblum, CPA

CFO | Technology | Life Sciences - July 9, 2018, Brad was a client of Ed’s

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.
Peter Banat

Chief Financial Officer at Bay State Milling, Peter was a client Ed’s at both Mast and Kaz

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.
Andrew Witty, SPHR

Vice President of Human Resources at EBI Consulting - August 25, 2016, Ed worked with Andrew in the same group

Ed is an excellent CFO. He is knowledgeable, great to work with and can learn and add value to an organization in a short period of time. I have enjoyed working with him and I have recommended him to my clients.
Rebecca Jungman, CPA, CCIFP

Construction Finance and Technology Professional (Rebecca and Ed served Clients together)

Ed is a wonderful human being first of all, and a very knowledgeable, and seasoned CFO.
We had the pleasure of working with him and experienced his hands-on supervision and coaching.
Dr. Sam Alkhoury

Founder and President, Simply Orthodontics, Inc. (Sam is a Client)

Ed was extremely helpful to RND Consultant’s Inc.! RND opened its doors in January 2018 as a Disadvantage Business Enterprise/Woman Business Enterprise (DBE/WBE) in Boston, MA. Ed provided financial advice and a strategy for setting up the business. His expertise was instrumental for making RND successful.
Janice Martin Bergeron

President at RND Consultants, Inc. (Janice is a Client)

Ed serves as the finance chair and board member of a local non-profit with me. Ed’s breadth and depth of financial knowledge has been invaluable to our successful operation. Ed’s insight goes beyond finance and he provides wise counsel in all areas of our organization’s operation. Ed is a true professional and I’d highly recommend him for any finance work.
Neal Karasic

SVP Product & Technology at SavingStar, Inc. (Neal and I serve together on a non-profit Board)

I have known Ed for a number of years and have found him to be an insightful, trusted, and expert financial leader. I wouldn’t hesitate for even a second to work with him in the future!
Bob Lemmond

Senior Advisor to Private Equity & Portfolio Companies (Former Board Director – Decision Economics, Inc.)

I met Ed at an ACEC/MA meeting a couple of years ago, when he was first starting out his firm. When my firm started to grow, my partners and I hired Ed to serve as an outside CFO to help us with financial and growth planning. We found his services very professional and helpful. He was able to point out areas for future focus, and we have retained him for regular check-ins on our business health.
Felix Zemel

Managing Principal at Municipal Code Consulting, LLC (Felix is a Client)

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.
Rob Arsenault

VP, Treasurer and Secretary at Decision Economics, Inc. - March 28, 2017, Rob reported directly to Ed

As Assistant Controller at Wilkinson Ecological Design, Inc. (WED), I had the pleasure of working directly with Ed for several months. His extensive accounting expertise, as well as his reassuring, easy-going nature, not only made for a smooth transition for the interim DOF position, but it also made for a smooth year-end closing process. He was very quick to pick up on the nuances of our particular industry which was impressive.
Ed was instrumental in connecting us with one of his associates specializing in software that we required help with to navigate its intricacy’s in order to maximize its potential for our specific needs.
I, along with the entire Finance Department, would have liked to have Ed stay on, but WED was able to hire a full-time DOF. I would highly recommend Ed to anyone looking for a CFO.
Sandra Crowell

Assistant Controller at Wilkinson Ecological Design, Inc. (Supervised Sandra at Wilkinson Ecological Design, Inc.)

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.
Eric Mankin, Ph.d.

Partner, Integral, Inc.

Rarely have I encountered a professional who has demonstrated the sensitivity, flexibility and quiet confidence which Ed exercised on a daily basis.
