“Rod is our ‘outsourced’ CFO. He has helped us … analyze our operating expenses and revenue targets, and make smarter financial decisions. We were able to close on our first significant line of credit at Industrial Bank because of Rod’s diligence with our loan application. Rod is also an advocate for our company. He connects us with government-contracting networking groups, and with business development and marketing experts. He regularly checks in with us to encourage us to continue to grow and land more contracts. Without Rod’s belief in our small business and willingness to endorse and underwrite our line of credit, we would not have been able to fund our infrastructure and operating needs that have allowed our business to grow.” – Kim W. Barnette, PH.D., COO, Delta Decisions of DC, LLC
