Faculty: Eric Fraint

President and Founder, Your Part-Time Controller

Your Part-Time Controller was founded in 1993 by Eric Fraint, a Certified Public Accountant with a degree from The Wharton School of Business. The concept of providing controller services on an as-needed basis came to life when Eric was asked by a business associate to step in part-time to handle the finances for his growing business. Eric soon realized that this was a natural solution for many small organizations. Since then, Eric's team of accounting professionals has provided financial consulting, bookkeeping, database development, strategic planning and other financial-related services to their clients, with a specialization in the nonprofit sector.
