Our Values

September 15, 2015

These are our values. And the qualities we associate with successful team members.

Results Orientation: Making and meeting commitments is a top priority at CFO. We believe in rolling up our sleeves and doing what it takes to get the job done when required. This includes ensuring we are prepared with the right skills and tools needed for the task at hand.

Customer Orientation: We understand that this company is built on long term relationships. We maintain a sharp focus on taking care of the lifeblood of our business—our clients.

Quality: We strive to achieve the highest standards of quality as demanded by our customers. This includes having the skill set and aptitudes required for excellence in the job.

Ethics: CFO strives to operate on the highest ethical standard. We adhere to a standard of ethics that requires us to not only do the right thing, but also to the higher standard that we avoid even the appearance of doing anything unethical.

Task Management: CFO is a fast paced environment requiring multi-tasking. Successful employees at CFO enjoy the challenge of managing their tasks in a way that delivers tangible value to their clients and the rest of the team.

Teamwork: A critical component of CFO’s model is the ability to work in teams. Each employee is a specialist by training, but success comes through combining our individual strengths into solutions tailored to our client’s needs.

Interpersonal Skills: We simply cannot execute on our mission without strong interpersonal skills, both with our clients and among the team. We recognize that the foundation of strong interpersonal skills is built on a bias towards openness, honesty and humility.

Strong Work Ethic: Our clients work hard in their businesses and expect us to work hard to earn our fees. CFO employs people who understand that when its time to work, we work hard.
