BELAY Acquires Scale Finance To Expand Financial Services

We are excited to announce that BELAY has expanded its financial services to better serve you and your business! 

BELAY has acquired Scale Finance—a financial firm specializing in fractional CFO/Controller services for small businesses. Scale Finance shares BELAY’s client-focused culture and passion for helping small businesses succeed. 

Adding Scale Finance’s flexible CFO and Controller services to BELAY’s ever-growing list of Virtual Assistance and Accounting Services continues BELAY’s momentum as one of the 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies for nine years running. 


“We’re always looking for ways to offer exceptional service to our clients,” said BELAY’s CEO Tricia Sciortino. “We see a growing need for small businesses and nonprofits to enlist trusted financial expertise, but hiring an experienced executive is typically out of reach. A fractional CFO model can be a game changer for these organizations, and BELAY offers flexible options designed to fit exactly what they need.
 “Scale Finance’s knowledge and experience is the perfect addition to our suite of financial services. We’re thrilled to begin offering even more robust and tailored plans to help our clients find the right financial hire—right now!”


Scale Finance Co-Founder Dave Gilroy is excited about the opportunities this acquisition provides for both companies. 

“Our Scale Finance team is uniformly enthusiastic to join forces with BELAY,” said Gilroy. “First and foremost, the two companies share a passionate and extraordinary commitment to client service and impact. For over 15 years, Scale Finance has existed to provide exceptionally skilled finance and accounting professionals to growing companies on a flexible, affordable, and remote basis, and with an intimacy that clients cherish for years.

“BELAY is redefining work. BELAY is setting the gold standard for flexibly organizing a team of exceptional and diverse professionals to deliver client impact beyond expectations every single day. BELAY is a standout winner in the professional services marketplace, growing fast by deploying professionals with remarkably high skill and integrity into client companies that benefit enormously from their support. Logically, Scale Finance is adding to BELAY’s winning formula by enhancing and extending higher-end finance and accounting services such as fractional-use CFO & Controller work.” 

This move puts BELAY in an even better position to help small businesses with complex financial strategy needs.
