Interim Financial Staffing

When you need a CFO, an accountant, or other financial staffing assistance we can help

Financial Support Services (FSS) is on our menu of offerings for private equity firms. The FSS team is designed to provide financial and accounting assistance for organizations going through change. Our Financial Support Services range from financial staffing to out/co-sourced financial functions.

We’ll help you ensure continuity in your financial department operations. Whether your financial staffing needs include a CFO, an accountant, or an entire team of accountants, we can offer the right level of support with people who know your industry. Engagement teams can support in-house work or undertake new projects.

Financial Support Services include:

  • Client accounting services
  • Financial project management
  • Interim financial leadership

Plante Moran has hands-on industry knowledge

Our FSS team members and private equity analysts have experience in health care, professional service firms, technology, insurance, retail, metal stamping, plastic molding, manufacturing, distribution, real estate, heavy construction, banks, and credit unions. You name it, and we’ve served clients in that industry. 

Our Financial Support Services Team will help you through change

Our financial support services team can help your portfolio companies with policies and procedures, corporate governance, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, forecasts/projections, accounting/reporting research, internal controls, and multiple site setups.

If there is a crisis, we can provide forensic accounting, accounting restatements, special investigations, and technical accounting/reporting issues. For instance, the court-appointed examiner called on us to investigate and evaluate Enron’s transactions, which are considered to be the most complex in United States history.

If you have a special project, we’ve got the experience to make the process run smoothly. Some recent projects we’ve worked on include site closings, cost recovery, third-party billing review, outsourced internal audits, agreed-upon procedures, and business process development/implementation.

After a transaction, we can set up an accounting system, develop a tax compliance plan, and oversee a wide range of compliance issues. If you need additional financial staffing, we provide team members onsite or remotely from our offices. Whatever your situation or needs, we are here to support your business and help it thrive during periods of change.

"Plante Moran has been working with Huron Capital for more than 15 years. Plante Moran clearly understands our funds’ goals and objectives as middle-market investors, which makes for a great working relationship. One of their best attributes is their understanding of the dynamics of family-owned businesses, which comprise the majority of Huron’s investments. The Plante team has developed a highly effective, customized approach to communicating between the business owner and the Huron deal team.

In terms of portfolio company work, the Plante Moran team has reviewed budgets and provided an independent perspective on achievability and assumptions that drive the buildup. This is helpful as we set financial targets for our portfolio companies. They’ve also been a great referral source to Huron — always on the lookout for potential add-on acquisition targets that may be interesting to our current portfolio. In this sense, they are one of our most active service providers in terms of business development."
