Who do CFOs turn to when they need advice? Some consult SolomonEdwardsGroup (SEG), a national firm that advises on matters of accounting operations, business performance, resource management, and risk and regulations. The company helps clients choose the software and technology that might best fit their financial planning and reporting needs. It researches the latest compliance rules to help clients prepare their SEC, tax, and corporate governance filings. And, although not itself a certified public accountant, SEG acts as a recruitment agency, finding and placing candidates in accounting, auditing, and finance positions. The privately-held firm was founded in 1999.
