Through the efforts of Jeremy Koczan and his team, SMX has a new suite of powerful analytical tools to help gain tremendous efficiencies as the company continues to scale and provide a strong foundation for future platform expansion and acquisition integrations.
Koczan spearheaded a 2-year project, leading a team of over 40 members, to migrate to Deltek Costpoint. This involved merging four acquired companies into one Costpoint system with a revamped accounting structure. Simultaneously, they implemented SEMFIN FocusPoint to enhance budgeting and analysis for SMX’s numerous client programs.
“Jeremy’s executive leadership extends well beyond traditional CFO responsibilities,” said SMX CEO Peter LaMontagne. “He is my partner across all aspects of SMX strategic planning and execution. Jeremy is critical to our success.”
In 2023, Koczan and his team are pivoting from constructing to refining their business operations. With upgraded automation and state-of-the-art workflows, they aim for faster, better decision-making. With SMX now on a unified system, the focus is on boosting efficiency and automating tasks to enhance analysis, Koczan said.
“Sustainable growth is the only way to truly drive stakeholder value, and as a result, we must focus on profitability and margin expansion as a key tenet of that growth,” Koczan said. “But equally important is being predictable as that demonstrates that the leadership has a sound and capable plan and can execute all of the fundamental concepts of business to attain success towards that goal. By achieving predictable, profitable growth, the business will be on sound footing to produce long-term value to those who matter most: clients, employees, shareholders and the community.”
