Before becoming a part of B2B CFO®, Noel served as the Principal of Valor Capital Advisors, an independent consulting practice specializing in CFO business advisory services.
His professional journey began at Arthur Andersen in Atlanta, where he gained valuable experience and became a certified public accountant. Throughout his impressive career, Noel has achieved numerous milestones, including guiding Initial Public Offerings, securing funding from Seed/Angel Investors, and facilitating public and private debt capital raises. During his career he was recruited to join Edge Capital Partners, a newly established Registered Investment Advisor & Broker Dealer. Serving as the CFO/CAO, he played a pivotal role in expanding the business into a multi-billion dollar assets under management enterprise with four locations and 28 employees over a seven year period. From there, Noel transitioned into the non-profit sector as CFO of Woodruff Arts Center where he helped monetize three non-mission related properties resulting in debt reduction of $25M as well as refinancing approximately $100M in bonds producing a $700k annual savings. In Noel’s most recent role, he assumed the position of CFO at a Life Plan Community, where he played a key role in raising over $170 million in tax-exempt and taxable public bonds. These funds were crucial in financing a capital project that doubled the organization's capacity.
