The Power of Good Advice.

Why Lift Bridge CXO as the name?

From Wikipedia…. A vertical-lift bridge or just lift bridge is a type of movable bridge in which a span rises vertically while remaining parallel with the deck. The vertical lift offers several benefits over other movable bridges. Generally speaking, they cost less to build for longer moveable spans.

We believe a lift bridge is a symbol of what we can do – lift tech companies to the next level, bridge the gap between where they are now and where they want to go, all at a lower cost.

Client Testimonials


Reasonably priced. Practical advice.

Able to contribute on short notice when internal resources were not available.


Kathy brings a steady hand and a broad depth of real-world experience to the life of our software startup. Her objective feedback and integrity as a team member is invaluable in so many areas — pitch deck collaboration, objective executive coaching, investor reporting, go-to-market modeling, preparing financials, banking relationships. It's great to have access to such an experienced tech CFO when we need that extra brainpower.


Lift Bridge CXO developed an infrastructure standardization plan for our multi-country company. Also consulted on VAT recovery and global general insurance needs among other things. Easy to work with, solid advice. Highly recommend.
