We are pleased to provide interim, temporary, contract, and fractional CFO services. Our experienced CFOs can help your organization manage its finances without the cost or commitment that comes with a full-time, in-house CFO.

What Does an Interim CFO Do?


An interim or fractional CFO will work closely with your CEO, management team, and Board of Directors on strategic business issues. You can trust them to provide the expertise and guidance your organization needs to achieve and maintain financial success. 

Benefits of Interim CFO Services


You’ll find that our interim or fractional CFO services reassure employees, creditors, suppliers, banks, auditors, and investors. This will make it easier for you to attract better people, secure more favorable terms, and improve the way you operate. 


A fractional CFO may be just what you need to take your business to the next level without full-time financial commitment. They can offer innovative solutions to help you overcome your financial challenges, fine-tune your accounting strategies, and expedite growth.


When to Invest in a
Fractional CFO 


If any of the following situations apply to your organization, you’re likely a good candidate for our fractional CFO services.

  • You’re a mid-level organization in need of some CFO services but can’t justify the expense of a full-time CFO on your payroll. 

  • You’re focused on a specific project that requires specialized financial expertise such as sale or merger preparation or raising debt funding.

  • You unexpectedly lost your CFO and would like to fill their position while you conduct a search for a full-time candidate.

What is the Difference Between Fractional, Interim, and Contract CFO Services?


A fractional CFO is a strategic financial partner that works on a part-time, regular basis. It is a way to access senior expertise cost-effectively. With the use of our cloud-based technology stack, Charles River CFO is able to offer fractional CFO’s to a wide range of firms in life sciences, high-tech, manufacturing, banking, general business, and nonprofits.

An interim CFO is typically a full-time financial consulting position hired for the transition period between a person leaving the CFO job and the search and hiring of a new CFO.  

A contract CFO is a general term indicating a non-permanent position that may be part-time or full-time for a short time.
