"I’ve always found The Mobile FD to be totally professional and committed to delivering the business objective. Their Financial Directors have a rare mix of financial and modelling expertise as well as strategic insight and management ability, making them one of the most rounded Financial Director services I’ve worked with. Their manner and style are always open, and whilst bringing strong thought processes, rigour and proposals to the board table, they’re totally open to assimilating their colleagues' views and strategies, resulting in the best way forward for the business. The Mobile FD has the ability to work at all levels from hands-on improvement of a finance function to strategic planning of multiple business units, and is a valuable member of any board."
"The Mobile FD is a great way for smaller businesses to gain the benefit of a large corporate Financial Director without spending money on a full-time FD. I’ve gained more in my business than your service costs, and have saved hours a month collating data. The Mobile FD also gave me a tool to make key financial decisions from a more informed position. My advice to anyone considering taking on a Financial Director? Speak to The Mobile FD first.
"The Mobile FD came into our business at a key stage in our development and growth, during a period of exceptional expansion. The Mobile FD assessed what we had, established our long-term objectives and then worked rapidly to get the requisite controls, procedures, reporting capability and analytical tools in place to support that journey.
The financial and commercial tools created by The Mobile FD have proven invaluable and gives the business the ability to forecast and plan its future growth and development with certainty and confidence."
"Mobile FD was retained by my client to carry out a complete review of profitability on haulage contracts and costs. He has completely revised the company's reporting systems, providing timely and meaningful management information which has enabled the company to make important short and long-term strategic decisions. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mobile FD to any of my clients."

"As a start-up business we have a range of complex financial needs but are unable to justify the expense of a full-time senior member of staff. The Mobile FD has been the ideal solution. We can now access expert support as and when we need it."

"All credit goes to Richard Stone for creating a fantastic tool. It models the equity investment and the proposed debt facility later in the year as well. Richard has acted on all the feedback we have given him and there is a Sales Sensitivity button to easily stress test the commercial growth.
There is huge value in this as a management tool going forwards as we can very easily test key levers such as retention rate, add-on sign up rate, ratio of sales resource to customers etc as we go on the journey and begin to accrue actual performance data.
The simulation was of particular value as it identified not only our most likely outcomes but also highlighted a particular sensitivity, or business risk, which had to that point escaped everybody’s attention.”

"The financial and commercial insight provided by The Mobile FD's logistical team has proved its worth many times over. They got under the skin of our business, helped us look beyond the accounts to really understand what all our numbers were telling us and ultimately helped us to get in better shape to meet the challenges ahead. We have a continuing working relationship to maintain this quality of information and advice and I would recommend them to anyone."
