We move you from where you are to where you want to be.

At Denice Sakakeeny & Associates, we anticipate, identify and solve the most complex problems of privately-held, founder-led companies. Because we are CFOs by training, we have a particular expertise in creating the finance, accounting, HR infrastructure of privately-held, founder-led companies.  

We prefer to build companies, not run them.  

We work with your CFO, or act as your interim-CFO, to bridge the gap between where you are and where you need to be.  Sometimes we are brought in to solve very narrow problems impeding growth, and many times we are asked to join the executive team to carve a path forward through a particularly challenging time.
