Tim Fischer

I'm an entrepreneur and a knowledgeable CFO with experience in helping small business owners solve their complex and ambiguous business problems and ultimately helping them to find the best and most profitable path forward.

Areas in which I enjoy helping clients:

  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Strategic Planning
  • Budgeting and Forecasting
  • Financing
  • Operational Assessments
  • Business Coach
  • Business Turnarounds
  • Cost Reduction

When a company hires a CFO, the Board and management team have a unique opportunity to bring on a trusted partner and colleague for their CEO who has the experience and the financial acumen to help chart a positive course for the enterprise. I have over 35 years of experience leading profitable start-ups and operational turnarounds and helping small businesses thrive. I have consistently exceeded corporate goals while achieving outstanding bottom-line profit through strong cost-saving measures and improving customer-focused sales and marketing initiatives.

Some examples of significant initiatives that I have led, and their benefits to my clients and employers, include:
  • Raised $5M in new capital to help fund new acquisitions
  • Reduced operating costs by more than $2M and improved bottom-line results by 25%
  • Modernized and implemented company-wide business and financial policies and procedures
  • Directed seamless manufacturing start-up, achieved profitability within two months
  • Successfully negotiated a majority sale of a small business to private equity

I enjoy using my financial and business acumen to help small business owners thrive and improve the value of their business. Your business is likely one of your most valuable assets and an important part of your life. Seventy percent or more of your net worth may be tied to the value of your business. Let me help you to maximize the value of your business.

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Finance from Penn State University.

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

  • Faculty for grad level Entrepreneurial Thinking and Finance, NYU
  • Partner, Atlas Bay Ventures
  • EVP and CFO, Sandy Alexander
  • SVP and CFO, NAPL
  • Controller and GM, Vertis Communications


As my Executive VP, I worked under Tim for Years. I've rarely met a more experienced, involved, and effective leader. Highly recommended.

Tim is one of the nicest people I have ever worked with. He is an expert in the printing industry. He is able to assess the issues and help the team create a plan. He stays in contact as implementation continues and the projects are completed. He has an unusually high capacity for work and handling multiple tasks.
