Ernest J. Scheidemann, Jr.

I provide clients with collaborative solutions to complex business challenges incorporating a balance of both qualitative and quantitative inputs to target optimal strategic outcomes.

Ernest J. Scheidemann, Jr.
Areas in which I enjoy helping clients:
  • Executive Management
  • Corporate Accounting and Finance
  • Management and SEC reporting
  • Strategic Planning and Forecasting
  • M&A, Due Diligence, and Acquisition Integration
  • Start-Ups, Turnarounds and Restructures
  • Financing and Capital Raise

I excel in fast paced, high stress environments which typically include hyper growth situations, large-scale start-ups, restructurings, turnarounds and recapitalizations. I bring extensive experience in SEC registrant public reporting companies, private equity backed companies, privately owned and closely held companies.

As a former sitting CFO for multibillion dollar publicly traded and global enterprises, I’ve accumulated a broad skillset while developing keen leadership abilities. However, my personal opinion is that my highest value to your business comes through my strategic planning and modeling which, with input from fellow business leaders, integrates critical operational, competitive, marketing, pricing, liquidity and capital requirements into a business plan suitable for executing on growth opportunities and raising capital to fuel that growth.

Some examples of significant initiatives that I have led, 
and their benefits to my clients and employers, include:
  • Over $5B in debt and equity capital raises.
  • Public company readiness for a $300M construction company.
  • Leading a global software company through domestic and European acquisitions and integrations.
  • Leading a multi-year complex restatement and SEC reporting project.
  • Launching a new national production homebuilder.
  • Leading the launch of a high potential biopharma start-up.
  • I leverage a distinct ability to rapidly learn new industries, with experience in residential homebuilding, general contracting, construction management, insurance brokerages, real estate sales, residential rentals and property management, enterprise software, SaaS, telecom, e-commerce/B2B/B2C, IP commercialization, import/export, travel and hospitality, and more recently, medical clinics and a biopharma start-up.

    I earned a Bachelor's in Accounting from William Paterson University of New Jersey and a Master of Business Administration from Seton Hall University. I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Global Management Accountant (CGMA), and am Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF).  

    Previously, I held executive financial positions at mid-to-large-sized companies including:

    • Aspire BioPharma Inc.
    • CFO/Advisor, Benchmark Builders Inc.
    • Partner & CFO, National Home Corp
    • EVP and CFO, ASG Technologies
    • CFO, WCI Communities, Inc.
    • Controller, Consumer Services, AT&T
