Kira Spivak, CFO and founder of VenturePack CFO Solutions, has been easing the minds of CEOs and their investors over 25 years in Colorado and across the U.S. As financial technology evolved, Kira designed VenturePack CFO Solutions (venturepackcfo.com) in order to deliver a high-quality accounting department, affordably, to her small and mid-sized business clients.
Ms. Spivak’s voracious appetite for learning and her love of a challenge is evident in her career path, which began in law firms at 17 years old, prior to joining an acquisition investment/management team that managed portfolio company investments, such as Yellow Cab of Denver, SuperShuttle and the Vail/Beaver Creek Jet Center. The same team later formed an SBIC fund where Kira held positions as controller and financial analyst and where she interviewed hundreds of fascinating entrepreneurs. Ms. Spivak went on to gain mergers and acquisitions experience as a senior financial analyst and a buy-side representative for an investment bank. As an outsourced CFO, Kira advised and negotiated a management buyout for a client company in the construction industry, which she then served as a part-time CFO as it quadrupled in size to $35 million in revenues and 200+ employees. From 2018 to 2023, another client of Kira’s went from $.5M in revenue to a run rate of $18M with sole accounting department support from VenturePack.
Kira is a contributor to CFO Magazine, Mastercard’s “Innovative” blog for businesses, and has been recognized as an industry expert in digital media and print (American Express, Citibank, Sports Global Source, Snews). Ms. Spivak recently was a panel speaker on “Business Divorces” at Fort Collins start-up week and enjoys tough topics.
When she’s not taking care of her clients, connecting with the business community, and motivating her team, she can most likely be found outside, biking, skiing, climbing, hiking, and playing music and sports with her adult kiddos and friends in Leadville, Colorado. Kira also enjoys volunteer work and staying community connected wherever she lives. In past lives she has served as treasurer for the Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts and was a board member on the Leadville Main Street Program. In 2020, Kira started Leadvillain Music 501c3 to support live music post-pandemic and bring private lesson access to adults and children in rural communities.
