Remote controller saves the day

Salo Expert™ matches senior experts in finance, accounting, and HR with organizations that need their help. Together, they tackle tough challenges, clean up messes, make strategic breakthroughs, and help every client get ahead.    


When their controller took another position outside the company, a real estate management company (with properties in 17 states) had an urgent need for a temporary resource. They were interested in bringing a seasoned professional on board to run their accounting department while they conducted a search for a full-time controller. To complicate things, their offices were in rural North Dakota.


The company hired a Salo expert consultant to be the interim controller—working three days a week. The consultant had a strong background in public accounting as well as significant industry and supervisory experience. She was ideal for the interim controller position. She traveled to North Dakota at the beginning of the project to get acquainted with the team but afterward, worked 100% remotely.


Although the organization’s president was initially hesitant to have a remote consultant in such a critical role, he was quickly on board after learning about her expertise and experience. As a result, the company received the interim help they needed from a top-quality resource they couldn’t find in the local marketplace.
