Jonathan Ankney, Chief Financial Officer

For the last 15 years, Jonathan Ankney, the chief CFO of Small Business CFO, has been working with small businesses and non-profits continually in a variety of financial management functions. Whether by consulting or by working "in the trenches" with business owners, he uses the variety of skills and techniques gained through his broad experience.

Jonathan founded Small Business CFO in 2004 in response to the critical need he saw in in small businesses and non-profit organizations: regardless of development stage, they still needed guidance, accounting services, and financial expertise to thrive. Since incorporating, he has helped over 100 small businesses in areas including financial systems development, forecasting, cash flow management, and payroll.

In addition to financial management work, Jonathan is the financial columnist for Smart Hustle (link) magazine, is an active Toastmaster, and serves on the finance committee of the parish of Calvary-St. George (link) in Manhattan.  He graduated from Binghamton University in 1994 with an MBA in finance and arts administration.
