Leveraging the experience of TechCXO’s CFOs provides a tremendous value to many technology startups and early-stage companies. It’s no secret that a big part of our value proposition is providing top CFO talent to companies who ordinarily couldn’t afford — or need — a full-time CFO and accounting and finance staff. Many times our partners will be a company’s first CFO and will do so in a period of rapid change, as was the case for 4th Source.
4th Source is a nearshore IT services business that offers its clients same time zone communication, cultural alignment and access to highly qualified talent within a day’s notice from offices in the US and Mexico. 4th Source had a need for expert financial leadership with the ability to operationalize ideas, and a need for experienced CFO level strategic guidance during a major transformational period within the company.
Led by Jason Scherr, 4th Source engaged TechCXO to operate as the company’s first CFO with responsibility of overseeing all finance and accounting activities until a full time CFO was hired. TechCXO implemented a playbook for best practice processes, methodologies and systems to enable 4th Source’s multi-year growth. TechCXO also secured the company’s first rounds of financing, implemented the company’s accounting system, established its month-end closing process and introduced scalable professional reporting and financial modeling tools. The company was acquired by AN Global in 2018.
Jason Scherr is an outstanding addition to any team and any situation needing operational clarity and direction setting. His positive, energetic, creative approach to problem solving is an asset to every company he works with. – Rich McKay, Co-Founder and Board Member, 4th Source
