What Our Clients Say

“YourCFO has been invaluable in helping to reduce the administrative burden of accurate financial reporting, and has allowed me, as president, to focus my attention on delivering on our mission and growing our business. They have also been integral in helping us develop and implement better fiscal and internal controls to ensure our organization maintains the highest possible auditing standards.”
— Presley L. Gillespie, President, Neighborhood Allies
“YourCFO has been an invaluable partner in making our business a success. The level of professionalism, attention to detail, and overall quality of work was impressive right from the start. Our firm provides services on a ‘contingency fee’ basis, and this business model has a variety of unique financial and accounting features that even the most seasoned accountants have difficulty understanding. Michelle, Karen, and the entire YourCFO team were on the ground, right from the start, learning what our business was about, and being involved in a way that has been consistent ever since.

Michelle and her team have always been accessible, competent, and reliable. We couldn’t be more pleased with the job they have done. We offer our very strongest recommendation to any business thinking about using their services.”

“Michelle Fries and her support team at YourCFO provided outstanding leadership, direction, and support to Urban Innovation21 (UI21) in an outsourced CFO role through a nearly two-year transition period. Michelle’s business and finance acumen, expertise, experience, and controllership skills were invaluable as our Board successfully navigated UI21 through a series of complex transitions, including program transfers, formation of a new stand-alone nonprofit enterprise, and ultimately the merger of UI21. Michelle served as our contracted Senior Executive-CFO who managed all Controllership, Financial Reporting, Audit, Compliance, Tax, Treasurer, Human Resources, Risk Management, Insurance, Grant-making and the COO functions throughout this transition period, working closely with our Board Executive Committee, staff, key funders and stakeholders.

Michelle and her team guided and managed these functions with confidence, competence, and responsiveness, and fully kept our Board informed through sometimes challenging transitions. With Michelle’s thoughtful “can do” leadership style, all UI21 programs have been sustained and are well positioned for future growth. Our Board remains eternally grateful for our contracted relationship with Your CFO. “
