Harvest CFO places CFO for Federal Metal Company

July 2015 – Harvest CFO placed Steve White as the CFO for Federal Metal Company in Cleveland, OH.   The Federal Metal Company is a leading supplier of brass and bronze ingot to the foundry industry throughout the world.  With a proud tradition of quality and customer focus spanning nearly 100 years, Federal Metal produces hundreds of tons of ingot every week.

Federal Metal Company approached Harvest CFO as the company needed a financial leader to assist with several critical tactical and strategic initiatives. Peter Nagusky, President of Federal Metal Company, states, “Federal Metal is in an industry that is facing many challenges resulting from increased foreign competition, falling commodity prices and a strengthening U.S. dollar.  With these challenges, we needed to gain clarity as to the value drivers and detractors in our business and also get a game plan in place that will give us a better opportunity to continue to be successful in this difficult market.  Harvest CFO quickly assessed our needs and immediately brought to us highly skilled individuals who had the skillsets and attributes to fit our specific needs.  The Harvest CFO due diligence documentation was very thorough and enabled us to approach our interview process at a very high level.  Steve White brought to Federal Metal Company the right skillsets and attributes as well as chemistry fit with me and our management to fit our specific needs.  Steve has played a critical role in helping us to make positive changes in our business and has also provided our management team with the financial leadership to enable us to make better decisions about our future direction.  Steve has also played a key leadership role working closely with our bankers to gain their confidence and support.  We feel that Federal Metal Company is in a much better position now as compared to where we were before Steve joined us.  I would certainly recommend Harvest CFO to business leaders seeking to upgrade their financial leadership.”
