The CFO’s role is more important than ever as industries attempt to stay ahead of the curve. Tomorrow’s CFOs will need to be strategic and innovative thinkers, able to navigate complex financial challenges and drive growth. They must also be excellent communicators and team builders, with the ability to inspire confidence and build trust both within their organizations and with external stakeholders. With the world of finance constantly evolving, CFOs must stay ahead of the curve to ensure their organizations are positioned for success.

In these turbulent times, businesses are under more pressure than ever to create value for investors. As a result, CEOs and boards are looking for CFOs who can differentiate the business though a focus on sustainable environmental, social, and governance practices. At Our Firm, we identify those visionary CFOs who have what it takes to deliver transformative leadership that will take their businesses into the future while continuing to drive financial performance and create sustainable value.

Discover the CFO of the Future

The traditional role of the chief financial officer (CFO) is evolving. Rapid changes in technology, data, and global markets are resulting in a more strategic, forward-looking CFO. The days of crunching numbers and keeping the books are gone. In their place is a new breed of CFO who is focused on driving growth, identifying opportunities, and managing risk.

Plan for Your Business's Future by Carefully Selecting a CFO

The role of a finance chief is often misunderstood. Many believe that the CFO's primary responsibility is to crunch numbers, prepare financial statements and manage the company's budget. And while these responsibilities are indeed part of the CFO's job description, they only scratch the surface of what this important position entails.

When it comes to succession planning, financial leadership is often one of the most difficult positions to fill. Not only do you need someone with the right mix of technical skills and experience, but they also need to be able to inspire trust, confidence, and respect in those around them.

That’s why it’s so important to have a plan in place for when the time comes to fill this critical role.

Championing diversity and inclusion in the workplace is not only the right thing to do – it’s also good for business. A more diverse and inclusive workforce is better able to reflect the demographics of the customers and communities that businesses serve, and can help attract and retain top talent.

In finance, women are still underrepresented at every level. In a recent survey of senior finance professionals, only 19% of respondents were female.1 And while women have made some gains in recent years, progress has been slow. According to a study by Catalyst,2 women held 20% of board seats at S&P 500 companies in 2016, up from 15% in 2009. But this still leaves 80% of board seats held by men.

Finance is at the heart of any business. It’s the lifeblood that allows companies to grow, invest in new opportunities and hire the best talent. But in today’s digital world, finance needs to do more than just keep the lights on – it needs to be a strategic partner that helps businesses drive growth.

That’s why we’re on a mission to change finance for the better through digital transformation. By harnessing the power of technology, we can make finance simpler, faster and more insight-driven so businesses can focus on what they do best: innovating and growing.
