Incubate Advisory Launches New Interim CFO and Turnaround Services

Firm continues to diversify by appointing Brad McMechan as Partner

06 March 2016
Incubate Advisory is proud to announce the continued expansion of its services in the UAE with the appointment of Brad McMechan, Canadian CPA, CA, as Partner. Brad’s primary focus will be on developing Incubate’s interim CFO and turnaround services. Many businesses lack direction in their finance functions, and this lack of focus is the primary reason businesses fail. At the same time, competent and experienced CFOs can prove too costly for small and medium sized enterprises. Incubate’s interim CFO services fill this gap by offering businesses the benefits of an experienced CFO on an outsourced basis whilst its turnaround services help struggling businesses to fully understand their financial situation and implement solutions.”Brad has over 25 years of experience as Chief Financial Officer and Finance Director for a number of successful businesses as well as over 15 years of experience working in the UAE, Middle East and Africa. We are thrilled to have him join Incubate Advisory, and we are just as excited to have him at the helm of our interim CFO and turnaround services division. This vital service has already saved companies from insolvency, and with Brad’s expertise, we will be able to assist even more businesses,” said Ara Sahakian, CPA, CA, and Managing Partner of Incubate Advisory.

Brad’s previous CFO and business experience includes initiating and managing acquisitions, large-scale ERP conversions, strategic planning, business development initiatives, and leading shared services teams for various organizations. Additionally, Brad has served in senior finance and general management roles in accounting and auditing, real estate management and development, ICT, distribution and business consulting for a wide range of organizations ranging from start-ups to multi-national and publicly listed companies.

“My aim is to grow our interim management practice substantially, focusing on part-time and interim CFO services. There’s a significant need for these services, as well as turnaround assistance, amongst SME’s in the local market. Of course, each engagement is as unique as the organization itself, so our services can be tailored to suit an organization’s specific needs. Our services provide significant additional benefits to an organization, including financial discipline, financial leadership and structuring that allows ownership and management to focus on doing what they do best whilst cultivating a growth-orientated business culture. I believe Incubate is uniquely positioned to become a market leader for interim CFO and business turnaround services,” said Brad McMechan.
