Have spreadsheet, will travel: Former Harbor Freight exec now a CFO for hire


Small businesses often don’t have the resources to hire full-time financial executives. Enter CFOs-for-hire — a concept taking shape in the Tri-Counties as B2B CFO expands its reach.

B2B CFO, based in Phoenix, is a firm that provides part-time chief financial officers to small and medium-sized businesses. The idea is that many smaller companies can’t afford to hire full-time CFOs, but still need someone to work with on long-term financial planning.

Bob Glickman joined B2B CFO as a partner in November 2009, after serving as the CFO of Camarillo-based Harbor Freight Tools.
