Financial Poise

About Michael Schwarzmann

Michael Schwarzmann has over 20 years’ experience helping identify opportunities to create value for his clients.  I have extensive experience working with established companies when they encounter financial difficulties by assisting them in developing solutions to address short term cash needs and longer term profitability.  My process includes helping to identify cost savings and value capture scenarios by analyzing historical financial performance along with current operations and projecting optimizing strategies. Utilizing weekly and monthly cash flow statements, budgets, and forecasts, I utilize a focused, data driven approach to identifying opportunities to increase company profitability. Through a broad review of financial, operational and strategic performance, I help guide companies to increased profitability. Working across the organization, vertically and horizontally, uncovers additional solutions and generates greater buy-in of the goals, objectives and action plan, all of which are critical to maximize the impact of proposed changes. I utilize my legal knowledge to seamlessly work with counsel to identify and address legal issues in a more cost effective manner.

I have guided the development and evaluation of business plans and formulated successful strategies to preserve or improve asset values. I am a consensus builder. Industry experience includes: health care, manufacturing, agricultural, construction, restaurants and franchising, energy and travel.
