Our CFO Practice serves CFOs of middle market companies who are looking for new breakthroughs to increase their performance.


As companies grow, there’s always a need to get more done. Efficiency is expected and required instead of hiring more resources. Our extensive process review is the first step. We follow that up with implementation of old-school process improvement and new-school technology like Robotic Process Automation (RPA).

Have monthly processes that take a significant amount of time and resources to perform? Are there controls that are not performed because they are so tedious? Whether these activities reside Finance, Human Resources, Supply Chain, etc., RPA may be an effective option that saves costs while adding significant efficiencies.

RPA is setting up software “bots” to perform these tasks on behalf of your people, allowing them to focus more on review and analysis. RPA works seamlessly with your existing tech stack.


In addition to RPA and other processes to improve your efficiency, there are opportunities to take a strategic view to creating a more modern finance organization. Finance transformation is that process. We help CFOs strategically map out where they want to go and assist in delivering their vision for the future. We help with full assessment and implementation of the right options: from ERP systems to specific tools like Blackline, OneStream, Hyperion, etc.


One significant GrowthXel difference is we don’t only help our clients strategically. We also help CFOs fill execution gaps.

Maybe an important team member takes a leave of absence. Maybe someone quit unexpectedly. You need some immediate help who can parachute in and make it seem like they’ve always been a part of the team.

With our iXEC team, we have a bench of professionals at all levels, available to serve clients when you need them most. A team of consultants that have served as directors and above in Fortune 500 companies parachute to assist your team when you need an Interim leader.

Need a lower-level analyst or accountant, our iPro team of consultants is available to jump in and help you meet your needs.

I have worked with Sam and his team at GrowthXel for a number of years and I’ve used them on multiple projects, because they always deliver excellent consulting services, but more importantly they are a trusted partner who provide solutions in their clients’ best interest. I’ve found that Sam and his team consistently offer insightful observations and advice even if not most expedient to their firm.

Sam Divine and his GrowthXel team provided interim CFO services to our company until the new VP Finance came on board. The assignment was 10 weeks. In this time, he worked closely with me on finalizing the budget, implementing a new accounting system, coaching the staff, improving our reporting to investors as well as strategic planning. Further, he assisted in the rework of the compensation plan. Sam was extremely competent, professional and enjoyable to work with. His contribution was felt at my level as well as within the entire accounting and finance team and I would gladly work with him again.
