Highly accomplished & seasoned CFO with a broad spectrum of experience.

Dennis is a highly accomplished and seasoned CFO with a broad spectrum of experience. He consistently delivers in fast paced environments. After working for Price Waterhouse Coopers he spent 14 years leading internal audit functions for international manufacturing, publishing, technology, and insurance companies. He then joined Ernst & Young as a Senior Consulting Manager, and was hired away by one of his clients, a start-up life insurance company, as its CFO. After seven years, Dennis led the merger of the company, which was generating over $200M in annual revenue with assets of $1.1B. Subsequently Dennis, as CFO and investor, led two start-up companies (digital media & energy) through successful sales of the companies. In the not for profit world Dennis accomplished the turnaround of a struggling school management company realizing positive cash flow and supporting 40% growth.
Through his multiple areas of expertise and industry experience, Dennis has led the due diligence on 18 acquisitions representing $1.3B in investor funds and became proficient out of necessity in forecasting $200M+ companywide multi-national cash flows. He gained an astute understanding of both technology and organizational change management from successfully implementing several finance systems, needed for the start-up companies, including Sage, Microsoft’s AX & NAV Dynamics, NetSuite, QuickBooks, PeopleSoft, and SunGard’s EAS. Dennis holds a B.A with honors from Andrews University, an MBA from UCONN and is a CPA for the last 30 years.
He is also certified in International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), and Not for Profit accounting (NFP). He is a past president of the Institute of Internal Auditors (Boston), a current member of the Financial Executives Institute (New York), active in the UCONN alumni association, and serves as a mentor for Columbia University masters students.

Dennis loves to spend time with his wife, family of five children and grandchildren. He has a passion for education, golf, scuba diving, and skiing.

Case Studies — Dennis McIntosh

“We came to PPC virtually bankrupt. Our major lien holder had auctioned off our assets, however with no bidder, we were restructured into a new and rapidly failing company. Thankfully, PPC provided turnaround advisory services, and thoroughly executed their process to create tremendous value in the new company. We were undoubtedly resurrected.”

Events Marketing

“PPC uncovered an oversight in our billing pipeline that clogged hundreds of thousands of dollars in non-accessed funding. Our project managers had no idea and you can imagine our surprise during quarterly.”

Fabrication & Textiles

CFO

“Our ‘all-hands-on-deck’ implementation of our new platform became stagnant due to staff changeover, meanwhile our current platform was no longer covered under maintenance agreements. We were in the metaphorical rock and hard place. PPC transformed our tech environment by spearheading a complete switch to an even better platform. We saw a 31% boost in productivity that quarter alone.”

Digital & Media

CTO

“When we first reached out to PPC, we had an operating loss on the books of $4M. After an extensive discovery & implementation period, we happily reported $0.5M in profit and a literal doubling of our revenue to $8M. I cannot overstate their role in saving our company, where we were before PPC and where we are now — night and day. They know what they’re doing.”
