BH Financial® Case Study

Dedicated Resource Program Assistant Controller


Our client, a Boston-based investment firm, had their assistant controller resign, and their accounting team was already understaffed. They needed a resource who could step in right away to begin cross-training with the outgoing assistant controller, as well as commit to staying on staff through the first quarter


After discussing the current staffing challenges in the Boston market, and the importance of having someone who could commit to the duration, Beacon Hill Financial introduced our dedicated resource program to our client. In addition to highlighting the incentives and benefits our candidates receive, we also pointed out this is a less expensive alternative than going to a consulting firm.

The Results

Within twenty-four hours, we found and presented a skilled candidate to bridge the gap and get our client through the immediate two months without missing a beat in controllership. Our client started our consultant with time for them to spend a full week cross-training with the outgoing assistant controller.
