After completing his Public Accounting training, he has focused exclusively on private and/or closely held entities and the unique dynamics of their structure. He has owned businesses, negotiated their purchase and sale, and served as the “hired gun” for investor/private equity owned firms. For the past decade, he has been focused on both the latest Fractional CFO and Outsourced Accounting concepts. As a result, he has a deep understanding of how to integrate finance, operations and technology to drive growth and enterprise value.
When not attending accounting and finance technology conferences, Ken enjoys being in or on the water, sailing, auto racing, and supporting live music. He travels too much to have a dog, but will occasionally borrow one to enjoy!
