Andrew Kirk

I provide owners and investors with collaborative solutions to complex business challenges. I am altruistically motivated, collegial, and adept at solving problems by intently listening to stakeholders and delivering sustainable results.
Some of the areas in which I enjoy helping my clients include:
  • Executive operation management
  • M&A, due diligence, and acquisition integration
  • Strategic financial/operational planning and analysis
  • Free cash flow forecasting and treasury management optimization
  • Corporate accounting, finance, reporting
  • Start-ups, turnarounds, capital raise
  • ERP system implementation and transformation
  • Procurement, supply chain
  • Internal controls
  • Risk management
I thrive in lean-resourced, chaotic, and ambiguous business environments. Partnering with business owners, family offices, and PE sponsors to drive enterprise value through organic growth, operational transformation, and acquisitions is what I do best. I am a pragmatic and forward-thinking operational CFO with experience profitably scaling organizations across a range of industries including manufacturing, distribution, retail, logistics, professional services, and financial services.
I have played a central role in positioning several companies for successful sale while ensuring business integration and accretion of various growth-oriented acquisitions. I am skilled in advancing free cash flow, operating liquidity, and profitability, with a keen focus on tactical execution of operation, accounting, and finance mission-based deliverables.   

Noteworthy accomplishments in my career include:
  • Successfully selling a passenger and cargo airline and logistics entity to a private equity sponsor and assisting with pre-sale buyer due diligence, post-acquisition system and reporting integration, and cultural transformation
  • Launching a $100M greenfield automotive assembly facility implementing all accounting, finance, tax, compliance, ERP, KPI reporting, and project management initiatives within budget
  • Profitably scaling revenues by three times to over $1B, building the nation’s largest minority-owned professional human resource services business
  • Acting as CFO of the first independent electricity transmission start-up energy company in the U.S. leading to an initial public offering 
  • Founding a captive financial services organization and later managing its sale to a leading nationally applauded lending institution
  • Implementing a multi-million dollar general ledger accounting and reporting platform for the world’s largest automotive manufacturer
  • Directing corporate revitalization, including financial, operational, and liquidity assessments for a number of financially distressed entities leading to successful investor outcomes

I have professional experience spanning 33 years in a variety of roles including CFO, president, board member, and advisory council member. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI and an MBA from the Mike Illitch School of Business at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. 

In my professional career, I have served as:

  • CFO at a contiguous 5 state private equity sponsored environmental services organization
  • EVP, CFO of a $1 billion human resource services entity
  • President of a Top 10 retail tire distributor and automotive car care center
  • CFO, VP Finance at a private equity sponsored airline and international logistics service provider
  • Director of a nationally applauded business advisory and turnaround service organization
  • President of a start-up captive financial services entity
  • CFO of a start-up energy provider
