About Michael Flint

Michael brings a breadth of experience with over 21 years of financial and management experience, including Audit, Corporate Controller and VP of Finance positions.

After graduating with his Masters of Accountancy from Brigham Young University, Michael joined Ernst & Young’s audit practice, where he advanced to the position of Senior Audit Manager prior to his departure in 2008 when he joined a SaaS company in Utah as the VP of Treasury and SEC Reporting.

Michael then took his experience to a consumer products company in Utah, where he participated as a member of the management team as the VP of Internal Audit and, later, VP of Budgeting and Forecasting. Michael was a key member of the company’s acquisition team and was instrumental in performing due diligence and integration work relating to several acquisitions. Upon the successful sale of the company to a foreign conglomerate, Michael moved on to a Utah hosted communications company as the VP of Finance, where he served as a member of the senior management team.

Michael brings particular expertise to Preferred CFO in the areas of financial modeling and forecasting, financial reporting, process improvement and automation, technical accounting compliance (including revenue recognition and equity accounting), cash flow analysis, profitability analysis, accounting systems, and higher-level strategic decision making.

As a CFO, Michael views himself as a strategic partner to his CEO clients—not just “the numbers guy.” Michael is active in the Utah and Idaho entrepreneurial communities, serving as a mentor for entrepreneurs seeking to raise capital.
