Joshua’s Bio

Joshua Gottesman has spent the majority of his 28 year career in public accounting, obtaining his CPA license in 1986, although after joining B2B CFO®® he surrendered his license, wanting to focus on the work about which he is most passionate, which is assisting companies to reach a higher level of success. While practicing as a CPA, Joshua worked for both local and national firms, and served clients in many industries. He possesses the ability to see beyond the numbers and used this talent to assist companies in reaching their goals. His desire has always been to help business owners reach financial peace of mind. In addition to his past work in public accounting, Joshua has also served as the Chief Financial Officer for both start-ups and publicly traded companies.

Joshua has worked with many industries including retail, real estate acquisition and development, mortgage bankers, medical practices, manufacturers, promotional product suppliers, entertainment venues, prosthetic equipment suppliers, wineries and service industries. His skills include financial planning and analysis, assisting with securing and renegotiating financing, developing operating procedures, strategic planning, tax planning and analysis, contract review and mergers and acquisitions.

Joshua also prides himself in being able to see issues from the client's point of view. He believes that "all people make sense all the time" and that if he can understand his client's sense, then he can communicate more effectively with his clients and understand what really drives them. He believes that this understanding is critical to helping clients meet their goals. He thrives in environments that present him with challenges to be solved and is always willing to think outside the box to find these solutions. Joshua believes that the improvements that he can help companies achieve go far beyond an increase in the bottom line. He possesses the leadership skills to bring together teams with diverse backgrounds.

Joshua grew up in Baltimore and earned his BA in Accounting from Towson State University (now Towson University) in Baltimore in 1986. He later obtained a Masters in Taxation from the University of Baltimore.

My Road to B2B CFO® | How I Got Here-Part 4

As promised, there’s not going to be a 2+ year wait for Part 4 of my tale.  In fact, this is the start of me posting regularly, and once my tale is told, you will see posts that either I write myself, or articles on topics I believe may be of interest to you.

It’s been a long time since I wrote the first two parts of this article.  The funny thing is, I really enjoy writing.  I’ve always had a talent for it (although having a good editor never hurts), it just seems like there were always other priorities.  That should be changing.  Let’s be honest.  Part of being successful in this business is having people know you’re out there, and blogs and published articles help achieve that.

How I Got Here-Part 1

If you read my bio on my webpage ( you’ll learn about my professional background.  What that doesn’t describe is how I came to be a B2B CFO® partner.  It’s been a long journey, and it brought me to a place where I’m having the greatest professional happiness I’ve had in my entire career.  I’ll relate it here as it might tell you more about the person with whom you’d be working if you were to hire me as your
