I’m a B2B CFO® Partner, with a passion for helping the owners of privately-held businesses realize their goals, both those that pertain to their business and those that provide assurance for their future. For over 25 years, I’ve been helping business owners plan for the future, improve cash management and forecasting, increase profitability and lead their organizations through an ever-changing business environment.
Helping owners and executives gain visibility into causes of sub-par profitability and develop solutions together lights up my work day. I love challenges and finding ways to overcome them. Business wins truly gratify me. I consider it a privilege to advise and support owners in business structural changes as well as effective succession planning and preparation.
Our world changes so quickly and businesses have to be prepared in ways we’ve not experienced before to address the new and varying challenges that we face. I would be honored to visit with you to learn about you and your company. Perhaps together we can activate the positive change you’ve been desiring for your organization.
As an advisor and executive team member to owners and executives, I have impacted organizations across a broad spectrum of key business aspects including growth through mergers and acquisitions, divesture of assets or holdings, business succession planning and business exit strategies. I have directed initiatives for improvement of risk management as well as managed and helped guide organizations through disaster recovery. My oversight of human resources provided key feedback to optimize compensation and benefit structures to drive profitability. I have also served as a compliance and regulatory advisor in human resources, financial reporting and other areas to help safeguard against loss due to non-compliance.
I have demonstrated ability to identify ways to increase efficiency and productivity through system improvements, procedural changes and personnel placement and growth. I have developed and led efforts to enhance profitability by identifying and closing avenues of revenue leakage, eliminating unnecessary costs, and providing greater visibility to revenue and expense drivers to all levels of management. I am a proven resource to help guide companies through circumstances of growth, transition and innovation.

The following is a testimonial for Peggy Head, one of the finest financial professionals it has been my privilege to know.
It was my good fortune to work with Peggy Head at two different companies over the course of a decade. She has an unmatched ability to learn the intricacies of a business and its financial drivers.
When we joined them as executives, both companies had overly complex finance and accounting structures that created ineffectual and often confusing operational reporting.
Peggy, through force of will, restructured and retrained the personnel, researched and studied countless data sources to discern the source of accuracy, and completely revamped the reporting of operational and financial metrics. She created financial integrity of data and reporting out of chaos.
Our owners, banks and auditors constantly sang her praises, and as President and Chief Operating Officer, I was most thankful.
Had I needed a senior financial executive in my last organization, Peggy would have been the first person I would have called. She is an absolute rock star!!!!
