My guest for this episode is Stephen King. Given Stephen has gone from being a bootstrapped tech found to a billion-dollar executive to a nonprofit fundraiser, it’s safe to say he is not your traditional CPA. Stephen has over 20 years’ experience with nonprofits in fundraising and fund development.
His experience at the forefront of technology development and accounting system design spans nearly three decades. In 1995 he founded Virtual Growth, the nation’s first cloud-based accounting service. Stephen spent seven years working at Amnesty International USA—first overseeing 300% growth as CFO, then raising over $20M a year as Director of Development. His time at Amnesty reinforced his life-long commitment to giving back to the community.
Stephen is an industry thought leader and is known for his ability to visualize the future of accounting. That vision led to his creation of GrowthForce where he is President and CEO. Growthforce is one of the nation’s largest providers of outsourced bookkeeping and controller services. 35% of GrowthForce’s clients are nonprofits.
Stephen and I discuss organizational culture, how financial management relates to it, and what the elements of culture are.
