Your business is growing and you’re in over your skis in one area of the business. (Or maybe two?) But it’s too expensive to hire a full-time Chief   Officer at your stage. Who can afford that kind of salary, bonus, vacation, health benefits, payroll tax, workers comp, travel, laptop, general overhead…? We could go on, but which area is challenging you the most right now?

“Brennan's ability to bring focus along with financial and operational excellence into a rapidly changing startup ecosystem has been one of the most impressive things I've ever seen, and all of that comes along with the fact that he's just a class act and great guy to be around.”

David Jay Founder @ Pass, Agree.com, Shoot & Share, Vivi, Warm Welcome

“Brennan balances a focused talent for bringing structured systems, streamlined processes and measurable metrics to all aspects of the financial and operational management of an enterprise with an innate ability to dynamically adapt in support of his fellow executives in achieving both tactical and strategic objectives.”

Don Oparah Founder & CEO of Blockvolution Inc

"Brennan is one of the best numbers guys I know when it comes to start-ups and tech-related companies. He understands this space including the various players and stakeholders that converge. He's also great with people and brings a can-do attitude. He helped Polis Technologies get clear on our revenue model and how much we could spend to acquire new users. He also helped communicate this during our fundraising efforts with Pasadena Angels and BMW iVentures among others. I recommend Brennan without reservation."

Dennis Baker Founder & CEO of Polis Technologies

Having Brennan as my trusted advisor and business coach has been like rocket fuel for my business. He helped create clarity for my pricing and helped me implement a new pricing model. He also brings systems and frameworks from a finance and operations perspective that have been perfectly suited for my business. I’ve recommended him to many of my clients and would highly recommend him to any business owners.

Kristin Prosser Founder & CEO of The Accounting Collective

Brennan created a work environment for myself and my team that I didn't know was possible. He had a vision and order that was way outside of my own ability. When we brought Brennan, it was to reorganize our systems and people, so that things ran smoothly and I could hand off some obligations to my team. What he gave us was more. More time and energy to be open to bigger opportunities. More confidence in the ability and gifts I do possess. More connection to my team and their strengths. Everyone was healthier and happier because of the investment we made in Brennan and his ability to see things through. The relief it gave me from a personal standpoint is still to this day, invaluable. I'm so thankful I'm so much better at delegating, so I don't miss out on what's right in front of me. That's all because of Brennan and the role he played with Cara Clark Nutrition.

Cara Clark Author, The Wellness Remodel, and Founder & CEO of Cara Clark Nutrition

"Don't work with them! That's what I selfishly told everyone when I first started working with Vessel Advisors. Admittedly it was because I wanted Brennan's skillsets 100% dedicated to FunnelDash and didn't want anyone else buying up his time. But, it turns out, a startup full-time CFO would be overkill. Vessel Advisors has been instrumental in helping me navigate our start-up's turbulent financial crosswinds. They were our financial advisors in the early stages when we self-funded the business heavily with debt and cash flows from other businesses all the way through to our first round of seed capital. Every startup should have a contract CFO and I can't recommend Vessel Advisors enough."

Zach Johnson Founder & CEO, FunnelDash
