David Johnson, CPA, MBA
CEO and Co-founder
More than 100 venture-backed technology companies have relied on David Johnson to serve as their interim CFO. Mr. Johnson has helped many national and international corporations construct financial models and business plans and made the related presentations to executive teams and board members. He has negotiated a multitude of term sheets for complex debt financing arrangements and was instrumental in several mergers and acquisitions valued at more than $100 million. He has also served as CFO for the Creed franchise, a $500M multinational enterprise.
The insight to found tempCFO grew out of Mr. Johnson's experience at KPMG LLP and Ernst & Young, where he saw that start-ups and businesses under 100 employees needed services that traditional accounting firms and practices could not provide effectively or affordably, if at all. In 1999, he co-founded a business to meet that need, which has grown into tempCFO Solutions.
Mr. Johnson is a certified public accountant and received his MBA from Columbia University.
