ETONIEN | 2008

Practice areas: Finance & Accounting

Founded to support the office of the CFO with project and interim CFO, Controller and FP&A services. Focused on servicing PE backed, middle market companies ($100M – $1B) requiring immediate, high level support. ETONIEN carved out a niche for their services within the PE landscape by offering high-touch service and delivering results in high-stakes, complex situations and always operating with a sense of urgency.

Value Proposition: ETONIEN is a high-value partner because of our ability to:

  • Offer clients experienced leadership
  • Deliver actionable results quickly
  • Deliver Big 4 talent with better results and lower costs

ETONIEN’s experience grew to include work for 150 + PE firms across the country and after 8 years there was a clear need with clients to also support finance operations related to HR and Supply Chain and Procurement.

ETONIEN | 2019

Practice areas: Finance & Accounting | HR

ETONIEN developed enhanceHCM as a business unit to address HR, Payroll and HRIS related needs experienced by the same group of middle market PE backed companies through M&A transactions and divestitures and systems implementations.

Practice areas: Finance & Accounting | HR | Supply Chain

The market demand for lean-based supply chain consulting services for clients operating in complex business environments was clear. Seeing that effective (or ineffective) supply chain decisions often have financial implications, and vice versa. ETONIEN’s core service offering rolling up to the CFO had natural synergies with supply chain management and launched Crosby Row as a platform to offer this service to clients.

ETONIEN | 2024

Practice areas: C-Suite | HR | Supply Chain | Restructuring

After 15 years servicing the PE market through M&A and various special situations, ETONIEN recognized a gap in the marketplace for financial crisis management in complex situations through times of distress. ETONIEN collaborated with experts to create Pivot > in order to provide fast access to lean teams supporting the needs of investors and stakeholders through times of distress. Cost effective, agile solutions are uncommon in the restructuring industry making this service offering highly sought after in the marketplace.
