“I help business owners who are struggling with their company’s growth, so they can build the company of their dreams. One that makes them a lot of money, and gives them more time with their family and friends.” – Marty Koenig
For my private clients, I work in roles as their CMO/CFO/CXO for hire, part-time Chief Marketing Officer, CFO, part-time COO, and work on sales, marketing, operations, finance and technology. For business owners who can’t afford a full-time CMO/CFO/CxO with vast experience, but can benefit from having someone with 20+ years experience in financial, operational, sales, marketing, and process improvement disciplines. I’m your Colorado CFO / CXO. I was also a 2011 “CFO of the Year” nominee.
I started out in technical fields, and was a bit of a geek. I’m really still a financial and a tech geek. I was the general manager of a multimillion dollar business unit at age 25 and realized there was a lot more to business than just engineering and tech. It was like I walked into a dark room and someone turned on the light (I get that saying a lot from my clients when I’m able to help them). I was intrigued that all the moving parts had to operate synchronously in order for my business to make money. There I was mentored by some smart people and learned how to keep score at a young age, and learned how to do data-driven decision making by pushing the company toward better, more accurate and timely financials. A few years later I went back to school for management degrees. For five years I was a columnist for an international trade magazine. I was a highly sought after speaker and taught university MBA students. Beyond and not-so-unrelated these days to the work of a strategic and tactical Senior Executive Colorado CFO in 2008, I’m getting more active in Blogging and interested in helping my business owner clients gain online visibility, get more leads, make more money and keep more of their money.
