"Michael has always performed at a high level on all projects. A consistent hard worker you could depend on and take counsel. Displayed high ethics and drive; regularly updates skills. I highly recommend Mike; he was a skilled accomplished colleague I enjoyed working with."
"I had the pleasure of working with Alan when I was financing homes for the partners of Interstate Corp. The way he maintained the company's financial information was second to none! Everything was provided to me quickly and without hesitation. He is a pleasure to work with, and extremely knowledgeable.I wish all the CFO's of the company's I work with were as easy to deal with as Alan!"
"Michael is a strong finance and accounting manager who has outstanding acumen of both Operations finance as well as Corporate accounting and controls. Michael understands the details and brings a positive business style in dealing with colleagues."
“Alan is a detail orientated individual that has always had a complete grasp of the entire organization and how issues affecting one piece of the operation will effect the other entities or divisions. He has a unique skill for being able to zero in on the pertinent issues affecting the company and maintain a long term view to the decision making process. I highly recommend Alan for a CFO position.”
“I worked for Alan at Interstate Drywall Corp. for 5 years. Alan was an excellent mentor as well as the financial leader of the company. Alan has a great ability to budget and plan for the future of a company. He developed many tools and models that were very effective in planning and tracking the growth of a dynamic company. His attention to detail and his control procedures were key to the financial success we achieved at Interstate. I learned a great deal from my time working with Alan and I have implemented many of those same models and procedures at my current company.”
“Over the past several years of working with Alan I found him to be an exceptional executive. His attention to details and commitment to his responsibilities and honesty are the foundation on which he has built a very successful career. As a partner of CFO Strategies Alan brings his exceptional talents to the organization he works with. The benefits these organizations will immediately recognize will be improved expense controls, better financial and strategic planning, profit improvement and overall increased operating efficiencies and performance. His professionalism and commitment are two assets that no organization should be without.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alan Lefkowitz for several years; he as the CFO, both of us part of the Financial Advisory Team for a mutual client. He has a broad understanding of many complex issues that involve much more than taxation, including but not limited to investments, business agreements and complex insurance issues. He is an attentive listener and asks appropriate questions until satisfied that the recommendations being made for the client is in their best interest. Despite the fact that clients may challenge new ideas that require chance, he readily ”steps up to the plate” to support those actions that he believe should be considered. That in itself is a rare quality. In this atmosphere of financial turmoil, every client needs both vigorous representation as well as advice that they cant trust; with Alan, that is exactly what they can expect. I fully endorse him without hesitation.”
"I can greatly appreciate the manner in which you handled the costs and reporting process at Interstate. I have just come out of the most painful meeting in which a company that is trying to grow past a hurdle is faltering on such a task. The process in which tickets from the field and POs and cost reporting unless handled with kid gloves can be really painful. Thanks for the experience you were able to show me."
It has been a pleasure working with you. You are a great asset to any organization and helped us get through a monumental transition.
Thanks to your hard work and the timely cash flow forecasting and financial reporting, for the first time I can really see how my business is doing which helps me make better business decisions. I am really grateful.
