The Company

MSC is a consulting firm specializing in crisis management for troubled companies, forensic accounting, internal management accounting, controls, and MIS systems. Our staff of professionals is comprised mainly of Certified Public Accountants, many of them with Big Five accounting experience, and other financial, MIS and CAS experts.

MSC was formed to fill a void in the business environment. We have found that many businesses do not have either the personnel or the resources to provide management with the information needed to quickly respond to changes in economic conditions. As forensic consultants, MSC uses its knowledge base of operations, accounting, and systems to accurately recreate and interpret historical financial information.

MSC has provided services to financial institutions, public corporations and privately held corporations in a variety of industry areas. We have an excellent track record and are recommended by major accounting firms, banks and law firms to provide a cost effective solution for their clients.

As Sector Controller of the Retail Banking component of a large commercial bank, Conrad played a key role in the establishment and growth of that business into one of the most profitable, well controlled and managed business segments of that organization. Financial procedures and disciplines were implemented within an established strategic framework. The profitability of all business units were determined, analyzed and measured against budgets developed on a monthly basis.

Management was given the tools required to know quickly where the business challenges were, the impact on profitability and what decisions needed to be made.

Subsequent responsibilities at other financial and non financial entities focused on streamlining and shortening the month end closing process, the establishment of an integrated strategic and profit planning process, operational reengineering, performance measurement, acquisition integration, cost containment, technology upgrades, evaluation of best practices, monthly management reporting geared to effective decision making, etc. In all cases, a close working relationship was established with both the internal and external auditors as well as the appropriate regulators to “avoid surprises”. Conrad has demonstrated ability to work directly and closely with client management to define the challenges they are concerned with, offer and assist in the implementation of “Time is of the essence” solution/s to increase and maximize entity profitability and shareholder value.
