Success Stories

Setting up a sustainable finance function

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 accomplish the client’s business goals. 


At a high-growth, family-owned engineering firm, the president was moonlighting as their accounting department—in addition to all of her other work. She knew she needed to set up sustainable finance/accounting processes but didn’t know where to start.


Salo assigned a tried-and-true, controller-level Salo expert to act as interim controller. On day one, the consultant stepped in and started taking things off the president’s plate. The consultant quickly began managing day-to-day tasks, setting up long-term professional processes, and preparing the company to welcome a permanent controller.


With the Salo consultant’s help, the engineering firm made a permanent hire and successfully transitioned the work. Now the president can return to what she’s best at: Leading the company, managing operations, and driving growth. The client has repeatedly said how pleased they are. In fact, they said if they’d known how awesome Salo consultants were, they would’ve done all of this a long time ago!
