USA Finance Monthly CFO Awards 2018 CFO at LeaseAccelerator David McCullough About David McCullough David started with LeaseAccelerator in 2015 shortly after the company completed its Series A round of financing from a group of angel investors and growth equity firms. He immediately went to work setting up a back-office infrastructure that would enable the company to scale with its aggressive growth strategy. His first priority was to setup new contract processing, order management, and variable compensation processes to support the rapidly growing sales organization. He also established stronger internal financial controls, completed l SOC 1 and SOC 2 audits, and installed new revenue recognition and SaaS software to track all the key growth metrics that would be important for future investment. David then turned his attention to scaling the rest of the workforce with a focus on restructuring the company’s group benefits plan, payroll administration processes, and expense processing systems. To quickly scale the back-office, he partnered with business process outsourcing firms in various locations around the world to perform the company’s human resources, finance, and accounting functions. As a result, he was able to deliver best-in-class order-to- cash, record-to-report, and hire-to-retire processes without having to recruit full time employees. In 2017, LeaseAccelerator began to realize explosive growth. To capitalize on the market opportunity, the company needed to make substantial investments in sales, product development, and customer success. David and the management team began a process to raise another round of funding from the growth equity community. Knowing that the fund raising could take six months, David secured $3.5M in short term debt to help fund growth operations. The company closed its fiscal year in March 2018 having doubled employees, tripled revenues, and quadrupling the customer base. Shortly thereafter, LeaseAccelerator announced a $30M Series B round from Insight Venture Partners.

He secured the original financing from banks and independent investors, grew the organization, and then ultimately led the sale to a Fortune 500 company.
