Phil Nahajewski

Owners of established businesses and startups benefit from experienced financial leadership to develop strategies, plans, processes and the human factors that drive successful performance.
My work with clients to successfully meet their challenges focuses on helping them with:
  • Strategic planning and execution
  • Financial performance improvement
  • Finance and accounting staff development
  • Business process improvement
  • Coaching and mentoring
I am a CFO with a proven record serving multi-billion-dollar companies, SMBs, internet startups and non-profits. I am masterful at scaling businesses the right way, creating sustainable financial outcomes while building customer loyalty and employee engagement. I am skilled at the basics: accounting, budgeting, billing, collections, ERP and BI systems implementation, financial planning and analysis, internal controls, supply chain and treasury. I am also adept at the important extras: leadership, strategic planning, M&A, change management, project management, mentoring and team building.

I have honed my skills as a CFO through a wide range of professional experiences, including:
  • Being statistically ranked in the top 10% of the Burroughs Corporation’s controllers, and leading the integration of systems and processes for a billion-dollar customer service division formed by Burroughs merging with Sperry to form Unisys
  • Integrating acquisitions to create new operating divisions for Time Warner Cable in Ohio and South Carolina, and providing financial leadership from the company’s billion-dollar Tampa Bay division where I established KPIs, oversaw an ERP implementation and managed large facility construction projects
  • Leading the financial modeling process that guided the successful competitive strategies for Brighthouse’s two-billion-dollar Florida group, and leading a cross-functional team to establish the new company's metrics to create a focus on building customer loyalty
  • Negotiating a debt refinancing for a telecom company that improved its debt service ratio from 1.0 to over 3.0
  • Restoring financial stability for two financially distressed mid-sized non-profits, first as a board member in Ohio and later as a CFO in Florida

I joined the Florida CFO Group in 2019. I earned an MBA in finance from the University of Detroit. I have served on several non-profit boards and volunteer in several mentoring programs including the Camaraderie Foundation (for transitioning veterans), UCF’s College of Business, and the JA Academy of Entrepreneurship and Leadership.

Professional experience: Leadership, Strategy, Management, Contract Negotiation, Team Building, Executive Management, Strategic Partnerships, Mergers and Acquisitions, Strategic Planning, Process Improvement, Analysis, Budgets, Project Management, Start-ups, Forecasting, Finance, and Strategic Financial Planning
