You should be seen as
an "architect of value".

While CFOs have embraced their role as the right hand of the CEO, our latest research confirms the importance of an emerging role: architects of business value.

The survey shows that CFOs accept their critical role in this strategic shift of emphasis – 82% of respondents said that CFOs are increasingly seen by key stakeholders as the stewards of long-term value.

What if I could help you fill that gap?

Hello, I am Pat.

I live and work in Western Switzerland. People know me as "Finance Coach". I help the most ambitious entrepreneurs create superior value for their stakeholders. To date, I have served over 300 clients.

Although my background is in investment banking and corporate finance, I do not dress, talk or work like a banker or a traditional CFO. I am first and foremost a long-term business and financial partner with an entrepreneurial mindset.

CFO.boutique is a service designed to help CFOs go beyond accounting, be seen as architects of value, and drive performance. To learn more, book your online session now. It's with me and on me.

CFO coaching
level up your role

A coach listens, asks questions, shares best practises, and tries to open up new perspectives. This is a great opportunity for incumbent CFOs to engage in peer discussions, share their concerns, and have a transformative experience. The goal of this coaching is to help them fulfil their true mission by embracing their role as architects of value.

On-demand services

On-demand services include part-time CFO services, interim CFO services, and professional services that can supplement or augment existing internal resources.
