CFO Brings Big Ideas to a Small Company

A former Tyco finance executive finds wide latitude to use his cost-cutting and other business-process skills.

It's amazing

My experience was very similar to Jeff Richard's experience. I spent 13 years with a very well run fortune 500 company traded on the NYSE, and learned all of the things mentioned in this article, just like Richards. And in fact, I have put together a turn-around plan that enabled a smaller privately owned manufacturer that was losing millions, to become profitable again. Yet, no one seems interested in that today. After 144 applications for all kinds of accounting and financial management jobs, I have yet to interview with an employer, most of whom I know I could have made a major impact on their operations by doing many of the things that Richards has done at his new company.
