We provide professional financial consulting to ensure accurate accounting records and efficient reporting. Our approach allows business owners to focus on what they do best and leverage our skills to manage the business side of their businesses. Whether developing proformas, audit support, implementing new business systems and software, staff training, or just being a sounding board, we are there for our clients.


Whether you are purchasing or selling a business, we provide expert consulting services to guide you through each process. If purchasing, we review past results, analyze risk and develop strategies to implement effective systems. If selling, Guardian CFO summarizes assets, creates marketing plans and reviews all offers in order to protect your interests before you sign the dotted line.

I started my career in the Utility industry serving as CFO for tow Pacific Northwest utilities. I went on to be a member of the Executive Team responsible for developing one of Central Oregon's largest software providers. In 2001, I decided to use my experience and expertise to consult business owners, managers and stakeholders in implementing essential business systems that make an organization successful.

My mission as the Chief Operating Officer at Guardian CFO is to provide our clients with effective business management solutions and strategy coordination. Growing up with a love for numbers I found myself working with a number of financial institutions and customer service companies to help provide customer support in an effort to help those with non-financial brains better understand their financials.

Zada, Guardian
