We initially hired Congruent Advisory (Tejal) as an Interim CFO to help us strengthen our accounting processes and financial reporting function. Very early on we noted Tejal’s focus on understanding our business and putting into place processes that increased communication and collaboration between Operations and Accounting departments resulting in a more streamlined monthly close process. Tejal focused on building trust and capabilities in the accounting team. She helped the accounting team strengthen their analytical and communication skills helping inter-departmental cohesion and a more informed decision-making process. Tejal is an authentic and empowering leader focused on developing and strengthening the capabilities of the teams she works with. Tejal would be a great asset to any company as an interim CFO or to a company that wants to build a strong accounting and finance processes.

Owner, Waste Co, CO
We retained Congruent Advisory (Tejal) as a sell side M&A consultant. Tejal helped us steer our financial, legal, and operations due diligence process. She was integral to helping the buyer gain comfort on all aspects of the due diligence. Tejal helped us navigate the transaction process in a collaborative manner. Of particular note was her ability to drive the transaction process to fruition in a challenged timeline (approx. 4 months). We unhesitatingly recommend Congruent as an M&A consultant. Congruent would be a key asset to any seller company looking for assistance with their transaction. Our family is forever grateful that Tejal joined our company and lifted our team to a higher level - I give her a five-star rating!
