Kim is awesome. She helped us get through a very rough patch with straight-forward adviceand business acumen. Very detail and facts oriented. She helped us see potential where wehadn’t and further streamline our processes to eliminate duplicity. I’d recommend her toanyone.
Our company was unable to produce reliable, timely monthly reports to our Board of Directorsand our lenders; this was driving down confidence in the management team and threatened ourliquidity position. Kim uncovered major improvement opportunities in our accountingprocedures and policies, as well as training opportunities for our staff. Month by month, Kimimproved the confidence we had in our reported results and greatly reduced the time it tookto complete these. Kim laid the groundwork for our new, permanent CFO to hit the groundrunning and provided a roadmap for success. She also provided vital insights into our peoplethat have allowed us to make impactful changes in personnel and training. Most importantly,Kim helped restore the confidence of our investors and lenders.
When our business grew to a $50 million corporation we felt compelled to review andimprove, where needed, our financial controls. We trusted our financial staff but realized if weever needed access to outside funding or capital we would be scrutinized on our financialprocesses and wanted to prepare for that event. Knowing Kim Marren for the last 25 years I wasaware of her capabilities and contracted with her to assess and work with our team. Kim’sability to quickly and seamlessly integrate into the client’s team and analyze a process orsituation to determine flaws or identify areas for improvement is superb. The key is Kim doesthis in a positive manner so your team buys into the change without feeling threatened by therecommended improvements. That is a hard skill to come by and Kim does it better than anyoneI have seen.
