Scale Finance Expands Into Florida

Scale Finance LLC, the leading provider of CFO & Controller support services in North Carolina, announces the firm’s expansion into Florida.  Leading Scale’s local presence in Florida is Steven zum Tobel, a veteran finance and accounting executive.

Steve’s executive management career, spanning over twenty years, includes experience building high growth companies in the functional areas of finance, SEC reporting, operations, and business development.  Steve has held senior finance roles including Controller, VP Finance, CFO and President in the following industries: financial services, legal services, student housing, real estate development, commercial and residential lending, and fantasy sports entertainment.  Steve has an MBA from Florida Atlantic University and obtained his CPA while a partner with national brokerage consulting firm, Securities Consultants, Inc.

Scale Finance’s experienced financial professionals will help existing firms in Florida efficiently expand via improved internal controls, meaningful management reports, sound strategic advice, and additional sources for growth capital.   Scale Finance’s proven business model is expected to drive growth for small to mid-size businesses in Florida while providing jobs for highly skilled financial professionals presently looking for work.

David Gilroy, Managing Director of Scale Finance, said “This geographic expansion south into Florida reflects our firm’s ongoing steady growth.  In today’s economy, entrepreneurial companies may not have the resources to employ full-time, expert financial leadership.  Scale Finance’s low-cost, fractional use solutions impact critical needs (bank-ready financial reporting, hard-nosed budgeting, shrewd working capital management, intense scrutiny of cost, realistic forecasts, insightful performance analysis, and pristine controls).  Nobody matches the results we can drive in securing capital for growth, and Steve’s experience in the institutional brokerage industry reflects our commitment to more efficiently address our clients’ capital needs.  We served over 100 companies last year and expect to approach 150 companies during 2012.  Our focus remains serving entrepreneurial companies with extraordinarily compelling finance and accounting solutions – great professionals, flexibly deployed as needed, at unbeatable cost.”
