CxO & Advisory Services

Being a strong leader doesn’t come naturally to many people, and many business owners need a little bit of help. While many Founder-CEOs have vibrant and healthy cultures, many still struggle due to forces that reflect human nature. Fractional C-suite executives, collectively called CxOs, go beyond the CEO, extending expertise to the COO, CMO, CTO, CSO, CDO, CFO, CHRO, and other roles. These growth-oriented executives manage the strategy and execution across all organizational platforms, helping scale emerging companies effectively.

Companies need executive leadership – but not all companies need all executive roles 40 hours a week. Fractional CxOs provide leadership in their respective roles to help companies strategically and tactically, unlike traditional consultants, where you typically pay upfront for their analysis and recommendations but still have to invest working capital in executing the strategy.

Dr. Cedric Alford, MBA, has supported the success of many companies in the role of a fractional executive or advisor in the areas of operations, marketing, technology, DEI, executive coaching and mentoring, and simply offering a fresh perspective on critical challenges impacting the organization. In addition, Dr. Alford’s leadership has expanded beyond fractional roles to strategic partnerships and board advisory.
