Interlochen’s interim CFO and controller added tremendous value to our client in preparing for the sale of their business. I would highly recommend Interlochen to owners of middle-market businesses who are considering any major transition and could benefit from a CFO or controller who has, “been there, done that."
Interlochen Group has been a critical part of our portfolio company’s management team on two separate occasions and provided both hands-on detailed accounting experience and organizational stability in both instances. They were able to understand both the business aspects and personality dynamics of a complex organization and operated effectively during highly stressful periods earning the trust of the board, management, and employees. They were able to respond quickly to our needs, and we would not hesitate to call upon Interlochen Group again should the need arise.
The Interlochen partner, serving as Interim CFO, was there on Day 1 following the change of ownership and was instrumental in the smooth transition. He quickly became a trusted and respected member of the team on the ground and was an invaluable partner with the overseas management team. Highly recommended and I would use them again.
Interlochen's CFO became a valued member of the company's executive leadership team. Over a period of nine months, he helped to stabilize the financial condition of the company during a very tough economic period and position the company for a period of renewed growth. As an added benefit, he helped the company to identify and recruit a very talented local CFO.
It was Interlochen's expertise and objectivity that gained our trust. Their seasoned professionals were able to quickly get up to speed and become part of our team without depleting valuable resources. I would highly recommend Interlochen Group to CEO's.
