Q5: Intelligently taking companies to the future

Related Special Reports

CEOs, CFOs and other members of the management team tasked with a company's strategic planning and ensuring adequate resources to carry out that strategy will appreciate the name Q5 -- and the services the innovative company provides.

Q5 was founded in the fourth quarter of 2009 with the mission of helping businesses plan and execute intelligent growth by delivering right-sized solutions for clients. Leveraging off the discipline and expertise of 40 financial professionals, Q5 offers a wide range of finance and accounting-related services.

The Q5 team is no stranger to San Diego. CEO Mike Rose along with Vice President Mike Ford and Director Wade Lindenberger were part of RoseRyan for six years. After the executive management team of RoseRyan divided into two separate companies, Q5 was launched.

"Companies need specific services beyond the skills of their employees," Rose said. "We provide expertise in a wide range of areas from governance, risk and compliance to technical accounting, business systems and processes. Emerging businesses can tap into our proven best practices, methodologies and templates, and utilize our turnkey accounting department solutions."

While offering services comparable to those of the Big Four accounting firms with the cost effectiveness of a boutique firm, what makes Q5 truly different from others in the consulting sector is the company's scalability and austerity.

"The Q5 team has years of corporate experience. Countless times we've seen companies purchase more solutions than they need for more money than they can afford," said Rose. "We don't do that -- we offer a way for companies to add new people and systems precisely when they need them while spending only what they need to spend."

Q5's focus is on today and tomorrow. The company tailors solutions to help clients with current challenges while providing clarity as to a company's finance and accounting infrastructure needs as it grows.

The depth of Q5 services is vast. The firm's financial talent has been handpicked from the best accounting firms and corporate finance departments. Q5's professionals have stellar resumes that include expertise in SOX, IT management, M&A, IPOs, audit, SEC reporting, due diligence, just to name a few.

Currently Q5 serves Southern California from its San Diego headquarters and has plans to open a Los Angeles office later this year. Q5's clients are from multiple industries including biotech, medical device, health care, technology, clean tech, government and nonprofits.

Q5 has a roster of clients that reads like a who's who list and includes many well-known San Diego organizations such as Adventrx Pharmaceuticals (AMEX: ANX), AppliedMicro (Nasdaq: AMCC), Father Joe Villages, Mad Catz (AMEX: MCZ), Scripps Health and Websense (Nasdaq: WBSN).

"Our roots in San Diego are strong," Rose said. "Mike and Wade have been keys members of the local business community for many years, having worked with several diverse organizations. It is this type of expertise our clients appreciate -- the understanding that each company is different and that solutions must be tailored specifically to a client's current and future needs."
