The addition of the new advisory practice demonstrates the firm’s commitment to serving the “office of the CFO” for private equity-backed and public companies across Southern California. “Comprised of Big Four CPAs with technical and operational expertise in accounting and finance, the Conexus Advisory practice is equipped to manage post-acquisition system and business process optimization, technical pronouncement research and analysis, comprehensive transaction support, restatement assistance, and IPO readiness,” the search firm said.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of Conexus advisory practice and bring our collective expertise to the vibrant business community of Southern California,” said Sean Gill, co-founder of Conexus.

“A major differentiator of our group is that we not only help diagnose the challenges and opportunities our clients face in the ‘office of the CFO,'” said Matt Primeau, co-founder of Conexus. “We leverage our operational focus to work side by side with them and improve the actual business process.”

“Organizations are increasingly challenged with the intricacies of dealing with accounting matters ranging from complex technical accounting, financial reporting, and operational accounting that sometimes fall outside of the day-to day operations,” said Mike Melloh, partner with the firm who heads up the Los Angeles executive search group. “Outsourcing certain aspects of the accounting function provides companies with the efficiency, flexibility, and skillsets that they desire.”

“As a trusted partner to CFOs and executive teams, Conexus’ advisory practice is dedicated to building long-term relationships based on integrity, transparency, and excellence,” said Marty McKeever, a partner with the firm who heads up the Conexus advisory practice. “The firm’s commitment to client satisfaction, combined with its deep industry knowledge and collaborative approach, sets it apart as a leading provider of accounting advisory services in Southern California.”
