What People Are Saying About Rick

customer feedbackWe work with some pretty incredible companies, and while they come from diverse industries, they all have one common goal – they want to be profitable. Profitability comes from achieving financial intelligence and these are just a handful of companies we’ve worked with recently that have experienced the power of it.

Keith Parker, President, Advanced Vision Technologies said that Rick Arthur was recommended to their company as someone who could aid in the analysis of their financial recording so they could better understand their business. I was impressed with Rick’s excellent communication style in the evaluation of our company’s personnel and infrastructure. His understanding of how to tactfully identify the unique personalities of our employees was amazing. After digging into our records, Rick established a road map to implement a true plan to accomplish what we needed. He has been right on track and has guided our team with his unique ability to motivate our employees to accomplish the tasks needed to meet our goals. I would highly recommend Rick Arthur in the capacity of CFO. We have been completely satisfied in his friendship, his professionalism, his knowledge, and his ability to accomplish the task at hand.

Bob Dodge, Senior Vice President, The Alternative Board – Denver West said that Rick is an unusually talented and effective person. His business ownership perspective, financial acumen and demeanor have proven to be effective with my customers, in establishing trust and rapport, diagnosing and addressing the short-term items and providing strategic guidance in a friendly, yet direct manner. I will introduce him to clients, beyond the ones we share, without hesitation.

Maxine McBride, President, Clockwork Marketing Services, Inc. said that Rick has worked with her company for many years. He has provided valuable guidance and insight through good times and bad. He takes time to really understand our market, the “company personality” and market fluctuations in our industry. Rick is a thoughtful, genuine advisor. I highly recommend him to anyone needing objective CFO advice.

Chris Blair, President, Blair Financial Planning hired Rick as their interim CFO to help their company on both strategic and tactical levels. First, Rick helped us hire a bookkeeper to manage our day-to-day finances. This enabled us to take our focus off of the details and concentrate our efforts on the bigger picture. Rick then provided high level direction by creating and implementing simple processes whereby we could run our business more efficiently. Rick helped us facilitate the process in stages, and through this effort we have improved our cash flow and financial outlook. By providing clear goals and gently guiding the entire process, we are on track for positive growth because of Rick’s efforts. 

We appreciate the feedback from our valued colleagues and clients and look forward to working with you to help you achieve your profitability goals. Contact us to learn more.
