A New Chapter in Your Company

When an employee leaves a company, it can cause a strain on your business and your team. But when it’s your Chief Operating Officer… that’s a different story. This is where a fractional consultant can save the day.

If you’re an owner of a CPA firm with over 50 employees and you lose your COO, the transition period can be intense. You no longer have someone to execute your day-to-day operations or oversee the firm’s high-level projects.

Projects may be delayed due to a lack of oversight. Your all-star team is working overtime to ensure they accomplish their audits, fulfill investment advising, and serve accounting clients well, but you know that they can’t sustain it for long.

You need to hire a COO, and you need to do it fast.

But you’re stretched thin running the firm and you don’t want your urgency to cause you to accidentally hire someone who isn’t a good fit. In your periphery, you recognize that this fresh chapter could be the catalyst that refreshes and revolutionizes your firm, so you can benefit even more clients and better support your team.

You just aren’t sure how to capitalize on it.

That’s where Sobo comes in.
