THE RIGHT FIT CFO

The selection of the "Right Fit" CFO, is critical for a company as they are a key advisor to the CEO and Board and they are charged with one prime and eight  fundamental tasks:

Prime : CFO is a CLOSER - gets the job done and WINS

  1. Leadership on all financial implications affecting and impacting on the company and its continued operations, growth and survival
  2. Ensuring that the company achieves / exceeds its profit budget targets and making the strategic decisions in consultation with the CEO and Board to meet this responsibility
  3. Constantly reviewing and challenging the financial funding structures of the company to ensure that they are sufficient to support the growth performance and ongoing survival of the company in changing economic times
  4. Lead and ensure the compliance requirements of the company for all finance, governance, operational, legal and statutory matters and ensure they are achieved, without fail
  5. Remove or solve all obstacles that the company may encounter
  6. Promote and support a viable team based operating culture for the company
  7. Protect the company assets and maintain an ever increasing return on investment 
  8. Always act in an honest, fair and trustworthy manner in all activities and always attain a win outcome

Recruiters / Search Firms, in the main are sales people who do not have any practical experience of what the real activities of a top CFO are, because they operate from theory and sales techniques.

CFO's are the equivalent of lawyer CLOSERS - they get the job done and WIN - all other tasks support this prime task

We have a CFO recruit a CFO from a WIN outcome approach, without all the sales talk padding

CEO's and Boards want a CLOSER


COVID-19 has changed the CFO role to one focussed on RISK and STRATEGIC FINANCIAL DECISIONS
