About Stratton Ltd

Stratton Ltd was founded by Carl Stratton to provide small businesses in the Philadelphia area with the opportunity to obtain CFO-level services at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time CFO.

We work with entrepreneurial business owners looking to take their businesses to the next level.  We typically help them do so by improving the financial information available, through better planning, by helping raise capital, and by offloading financial management tasks from the owner.

Our current clients include a therapy staffing firm, a nine-location restaurant chain, a real estate investment and management company, a landscaping contractor, and a digital marketing agency.   Our typical client has between $2 million and $15 million in annual revenues.  Most of our clients have at least doubled their revenues over the past five years and intend to do so again in the next three-to-five years.
