WHO WE ARE
Craig Gorham, CFA
I’m excited to demonstrate how more than 15 years of experience in corporate finance will allow me to find solutions to your business challenges. My track-record has consistently demonstrated the ability to rapidly add value and to identify opportunity through a variety of economic environments.
Here are just a few ways my abilities will benefit you:
I’ve been immersed in finance and valuations for the last 15 years and as such, have the experience and training to solve your trickiest economic puzzles. From pricing new stock issues as an Investment Banker through calculating the NPVs and IRRs of billion-dollar acquisitions as the valuation specialist in a Business Development group, I’ve continually put my reputation on the line to ensure business decisions can be made with certainty. You’ll be confident walking into a meeting with the Board of Directors or a key shareholder knowing that the number’s I’ve prepared will be accurate, key risks will be identified, and a compelling narrative highlighting upside opportunities will have been developed;
Efficiency is one of my obsessions. I’m relentless in developing systems and routines to optimize performance when I recognize that financial models and situations that can be improved upon. This has included deploying pivot tables and slicers to elevate data into corporate intelligence and by coding custom VBA routines to speed through complex patterns of calculations. By simplifying tasks to the point where they can be successfully deskilled without diminishing their reliability, your team will be able to focus on its highest value deliverables while eliminating inefficient busy-work.
A natural teacher, I've been trained by ?WhatIf! Innovation as a 'Pioneering Practitioner' and subsequently led seminars on innovation and cultural change with groups from 4 to 140 people. My playful and easygoing manner allows me to communicate otherwise dry and technical concepts so that participants remain engaged and enthused on the subject matter so that they can rapidly translate the methods learned into increased productivity on the job.
