Michael Granek, former Financial Director of homewares and kitchenware supplier Albi, has joined virtual CFO company CFO On-Call as a Partner.
Boasting a rare combination of financial, operational and transformational acumen, during his time with Albi, Michael helped to grow the business’s earnings from $18 million to $65 million per annum.
Based in Melbourne, he now hopes to share his expertise with small to medium businesses with aspirations of growth.
“I’m really looking forward to the diversity this role will bring,” Michael said.
“Working side by side with a range of different businesses will bring out the best in what I’ve been able to deliver as a senior executive in a career spanning more than three decades.”
A qualified CPA, Michael has a blue-chip financial pedigree that extends beyond solely analysing and optimising accounts. He excels at identifying and implementing tailored software systems, which routinely lead to more efficient systems.
“In my previous role, we used IT solutions to automate previously manual tasks and processes,” Michael said.
“This was a large contributing factor to the impressive revenue growth, but equally satisfying was the fact we simultaneously kept administrative staffing levels stable.”
Michael is also a firm believer in mentoring, as opposed to micromanaging.
“I’ll bring experience from improving and streamlining large scale companies to businesses of different sizes, as they need it,” he said.
“It’s no secret the economy is a little tough at the moment, and I really look forward to joining forces with people who are brave and hard-working enough to chase their dreams.”
