"In 2011, our companies suffered a major loss when my business partner and best friend died suddenly. Since my partner had previously handled much of the financials, I was left to handle the day to day operations of the businesses and deal with his loss. It was a very difficult time. We were in desperate need to get the books in order and deal with the possibility of having to find a new bank since several bank loans had come due. With the help of Manny Skevofilax, we were able straighten out our books and get comfortable managing our financials in their entirety. Not only that, but due to his good reputation in the banking industry and expertise with business consulting, we were also able to salvage our existing banking relationship. We are extremely grateful to Manny and would highly recommend him to other business owners."

“Portal CFO Consulting and its owner, Manny Skevofilax have been an integral part of the success of Nightmare Graphics since 2011. Manny has been a mentor and friend in helping to turn around a 33 year old company that had to rebound from the recession of 2009 and 2010. His knowledge and experience in all matters financial have returned the company to its former prosperity in just three years. Manny has also used his vast network of colleagues to help Nightmare Graphics secure the best in merchant services, healthcare options, and accounting professionals. Our overall expenses have been reduced in the thousands thanks to Manny’s contacts. Manny is not just a financial statistician, but a strategist who wants to hear all the options before recommending a move or direction the company may want to pursue. We rarely make a significant purchase or marketing decision without Manny’s approval. It has been a pleasure working with Manny and I am sure with his continued guidance, Nightmare Graphics will remain a stronghold in the community and throughout the United States. I can’t thank Manny enough for all that he has done.”

“Manny helped us work through some very challenging ownership, management, and financial issues. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an outsourced CFO.”
Dan Harris
CEO, Premier Planning Group
“Adding Manny as our outsourced CFO is one of the main reasons EntreQuest has been able to increase the net profit margin significantly this year. Too often business owners are so involved “in the business” that they never take the time to work “on the business” and truly analyze their business model. Manny not only challenged our thinking, he used his experience and expertise to implement a sound financial plan that drove both the top and bottom line dramatically. It is truly one of the most profitable investments EntreQuest has ever made.”
Jason Pappas
CEO, EntreQuest Inc.
“Manny is a part of our team and a person of high integrity who shares our company values. If you are looking for a CFO who can help get your business to the next level, Manny is the person to help you get there. We went through a tough period, as many small businesses did the past few years and he helped us manage our cash flow and create proforma budgets that were realistic and that would create greater value for the company. He always kept on top of things like a true professional. Thanks Manny!”
Elizabeth Shea

Manny has been critical to the success of our company. I did not plan on running a business. I have no special training. But with Manny’s guidance we have managed to grow our business every year while keeping cash flow and the balance sheet in excellent condition. I strongly recommend Manny to any entrepreneur looking to get away from all the financial admin it takes to run a company. During good times and turbulent times, Manny continues to be a trusted advisor.
