David Schlottman, CFO Florida, Based In: Naples/Ft Myers
Dave knows what it takes to grow a company. With more than 30 years of professional experience in diverse industries, he has helped business owners and CEOs establish and execute growth-oriented business strategies that deliver results.
Before joining The CFO Connection, Dave served as CFO for a national distributor and manufacturer of custom formwork and shoring equipment. There he helped the company increase its borrowing capacity, implement a cash forecasting system, and set new prices to optimize profitability – all as part of a campaign to facilitate growth and transition from distribution to manufacturing. The campaign worked: the following year the company grew by 40%.
Dave has had similar success elsewhere. Working with the largest electrical subcontractor in Florida during a time of rapid growth,, he put the company on a sound financial footing by introducing strict financial controls and reporting mechanisms. He implemented a purchasing system that saved the company millions of dollars. His analysis and ideas to overcome the impact of crushing copper price increases allowed the company to continue to grow.
As the CFO for one of the fastest growing burglar alarm company in Florida, Dave also managed 30 acquisitions ranging from $100,000 to $12 million. This enabled the company to grow its account base from 10,000 to more than 72,000 – while increasing revenues by more than 600%.
Dave prides himself on his ability to work closely with CEOs and other top management. Throughout his career, he has served as a sounding board and close personal confidant for those charged with steering their companies toward a brighter, more successful future. He looks forward to working with your organization in a similar capacity.
Dave holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Management from the University of Florida.
