Kirk W. McLaren
MBA, CPA, IFM CEO @Foresight CFO, Georgetown University Lecturer
Kirk is the CEO of Foresight CFO, Growth CFO Certification instructor, and the Georgetown University graduate studies lecturer. His love for small businesses led to the development of the Impact Financial Management™ method to develop CFO’s into Growth CFO’s and guide their performance. Growth CFO’s are not traditional compliance/accounting officers in any sense of the word. Instead, they work side by side with the CEO to intentionally grow their business with an eye toward the ultimate exit. IFM works in both growth and declining economic environments.
