At Fine Point Consulting, we pride ourselves on tailoring financial expertise to startups and early-stage companies through our fractional CFO services. Our finance manager, Adam Gardebrecht, is a large reason why we are able to provide services that are not only unique to each client, but also of the utmost quality. We sat down with Adam to discuss how his personal skills, experience, and philosophies contribute to the success of our CFO services.

Adam started his career as a biological systems engineer but transitioned into the world of finance, eventually returning to school for his MBA at UW-Madison, and afterward, to us at Fine Point Consulting. His background is not just a testament to his versatility but also highlights our commitment to bringing diverse expertise to our clients, especially those in the biotech sector.

Since Joining The Team

Since Adam joined us as a Finance Manager, he has seamlessly integrated his skills in financial planning and analysis (FP&A), capital management, and what-if analysis into the services we offer. His approach is underscored by a simple, yet powerful philosophy:  "You can’t manage what you can’t measure." By uncovering discrepancies and clarifying measurements, Adam has been instrumental in guiding our clients toward crucial course corrections.

Our fractional CFO services are designed to bridge the financial expertise gap for startups and growth-stage businesses that may not have the resources for a full-time executive. By working with a variety of businesses, Adam brings a wealth of knowledge to each unique situation, tailoring his approach to meet the immediate objectives and long-term goals of our clients. His work epitomizes the flexibility, depth of experience, and strategic focus that we bring to our clients. 

Adam’s method involves a deep dive into the past, present, and future aspirations of the businesses we work with, identifying the tools and knowledge needed to achieve their goals. This dedication to personalizing our approach ensures that our fractional CFO services are not just about financial management, but about fostering growth and navigating the challenges of scaling up.

Looking Ahead

Adam believes that the future of CFO services will be shaped by advancements in AI and automation, emphasizing the importance of a broad understanding of the business landscape, rather than niche expertise. This perspective is directly in line with our philosophy at Fine Point Consulting. We believe in preparing our clients for growth, equipping them with the strategic insights to navigate the complexities of their industries successfully.

At Fine Point Consulting, we are more than just number crunchers; we are partners in our clients’ success. Adam’s story is a shining example of the passion, expertise, and dedication we bring to the table. Through our fractional CFO services, we are committed to helping your business grow, navigate financial challenges, and achieve its full potential. Join us, and let’s chart the path to your business's success together.
