The landscape for CFOs has changed in recent years, with investors in private equity-backed and public companies alike, demanding an unprecented level of rigour, supervision and leadership, beyond the traditional requirements of the finance function.

The role of the CFO has increasingly become one of a partner to the CEO in driving both top line growth and operational aspects of the business. While a relentless focus on accurate figures, financial reporting and solid internal controls is imperative, today’s CFO often has a much broader remit. In such a context, a CFO’s success depends on his/her ability to rely on strong teams and requires building strong relationships with key stakeholders internally and externally.

In certain contexts, such as private equity portfolio companies, CFOs are also expected to understand the importance and pressures of highly-leveraged situations and remain focused on covenants and cash flow at all times.
