Putting CFOs in Positions That Help Business Owners Succeed

At The CFO Factor, we provide chief financial officers (CFOs) on a part-time, interim, temporary or project basis in business and professional services firms throughout the world.

Assignments are for pre-determined periods to analyze the business, and recommend and implement finance-related actions.

Typical employment arrangements are:

  • Permanent Part-Time (4 or more hours a week)
  • Interim (1 month to 6 months)
  • Temporary (variable, based on client needs)
  • Project (variable, based on client needs)

The CFO Factor also places CFOs to train or mentor finance and accounting staff, as well as conduct project-specific engagements based on clients' needs.

The Pittsburgh-based company was co-founded by Scott Martin and Jim Vazzo. They have more than 50 years of combined experience in corporate financial management.

Mr. Martin began his career in banking before transitioning to corporate finance. He has formed and managed companies in 20 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa. He has multifaceted financial expertise in companies ranging from multi-billion-dollar international corporations to mid-sized privately-held businesses. Mr. Martin holds a B.S. in Accounting and Business Law from the University of Tennessee.

Mr. Vazzo has worked extensively with manufacturers in the metals, chemical and electronics industries. Those companies have annual revenues ranging from $3 million to $200 million. He has been instrumental with helping companies establish domestic and international banking relationships, as well as with securing lines of credit, loans and interest rate swap agreements, and designing performance-driven metrics for monitoring corporate financial performance. Mr. Vazzo holds an MBA and a B.S. in Accounting from Youngstown State University.
