CFO Systems Testimonials
We have received many honors over the years – the best of which is hearing what our happy clients have to say!
Here at Central Plains Milling, we have the privilege of working with Jeff Janda & CFO Systems. Jeff helps to ensure the accuracy of our published financials every month and he undertakes many other accounting projects for us on an as needed basis. He has helped us gain a stronger understanding of our system and its capabilities, thus helping us streamline our financial processes and promote security in the numbers that we deliver. I really appreciate the fact that he is always there when I need him, whether it is to audit our monthly financials or just for a simple question. Jeff is a pure pleasure to work with. Jeff is a rare numbers guy with a fantastic personality that makes it fun to dive into the numbers side of our business. I couldn’t imagine doing this job without him!!!

Several years ago, I was looking to add some additional skills and experience to our financial team and was referred by a peer to Brett Frevert and CFO Systems. After meeting with Brett and discussing our company plans, he paired us with Courtney Bird to help build the skillset in our accounting and finance group. Courtney was a great resource to guide the growth of our existing team.
A few years later, we were looking to upgrade our financial talents on a more permanent basis. Brett identified Doug Hiemstra as a good fit to help fill some gaps in the transition and Steve Getzfrid with CFO Systems Search & Staffing (CFOS3) placed some great talent in our VP Finance role. Moving through the transition, Doug has continued to support strategic projects and provide invaluable insight and guidance for myself, our board of directors and the leadership team.
I have worked with CFO Systems through multiple projects and transitions over the past four years and their contribution has exceeded my expectations. They helped to build the financial team I have always wanted to support our growth strategy. On top of that, they are just great people and fun to work with.

The Boone County Hospital had an employee that was going to be out for maternity leave and needed someone to help with her work – primarily general ledger and clinic bank reconciliation work. CFO Systems Director Kristin Weis was up for the job. We were able to provide Kristin with training prior to our employee going on leave which made the transition much easier once our employee went on leave.
Kristin’s experience and skills were fitting for the task we needed her to complete. Having Kristin complete this portion of our employee’s month end task allowed us to split up the remainder of that employee’s task while still completing our month end procedures and really worked well for our department.

When our Finance Manager left at short notice, our first call was to CFO Systems. Mike and Randy made an immediate impact and prioritized my long task list quickly. They operate with efficiency and approach our programs and how we work with curiosity. Our finance operations from accounts payable, accounts receivable, to audit prep, to creation of new systems—have improved significantly in a very short time. Now, we can work on longer-term planning. More than just contractors, they have become members of our team. My Board and I are grateful for their support and guidance!

Our team at Legacy Seed Companies, LLC first engaged CFO Systems to work with LaDon Johnson as a fractional CFO. LaDon’s familiarity with seed businesses helped us quickly identify what we needed to do to improve our closing processes, as well as help us prep for an asset sale process. LaDon quickly identified additional help needed in cashflow analysis, and we brought in additional help from CFO Systems to flex to the level of help we needed. In addition, as our company grew past 50 employees, we needed further help in the HR field, and Shari Hamsa has been a huge help in this area as well.
It is safe to say that without CFO Systems and LaDon’s help, we would not have been able to complete the asset sale to a private equity firm. The ability of CFO Systems to put additional ‘muscle’ behind problems or issues has been a huge benefit to our firm as we grow our business.
-Colin Steen, CEO, Legacy Seed Companies (Michigan)
Prior to forming an ESOP to acquire the company in 2013, our company’s accounting was relatively simple, and we were able to manage it internally. Afterwards, the additional layers of complexity and reporting requirements were keeping the company’s leaders too busy with work that was not their best use of time. After learning about CFO Systems’ model and capabilities, we realized this is what we needed to help us bridge the gap until we are ready for a full time CFO. We have worked with Mark Nelson for several years, and he has become an extension of our company, regularly communicating on our behalf with the bank as well as our auditors. Having CFO Systems as part of our company has freed us up to focus on growth, client service, and sales, a huge value to us.
