Scale Finance Expands to Washington, DC Region

Scale Finance LLC, the leading provider of CFO & Controller support services in North Carolina, announces the firm’s expansion to the Mid-Atlantic Region initially serving Washington, DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland. Leading Scale’s local presence in the region is Carl Paladino, a veteran financial executive. Carl’s executive management career, spanning over twenty years, includes experience building high growth companies in the functional areas of finance, information technologies, human resources, operations, and business development.  Carl has held senior finance roles including Controller, VP Finance, CFO and VP Business Development in the following industries:  Defense/Aerospace, Foodservice/Hospitality, IT, Design/Build Construction, Direct Marketing, Manufacturing and Media.  Carl is a graduate of Villanova University and obtained his CPA while with PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Gary Hayes, Managing Director of Scale Finance, said “This geographic expansion beyond NC 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 control). And nobody matches the results we can drive in securing capital for growth. 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.”
