Back in March of 2007, I authored an article on CFO career trends. Here’s an exerpt:
CPA CFOs are the candidates of the future. A CPA CFO with operational experience will offer a compelling value proposition.
The catalyst for “Who Needs a COO,” in CFO.com was Starbuck’s elimination of the COO role and the filling of that role by the CFO. And, according to this article, other companies are following suit as CFOs with technical qualifications, absent from most COO backgrounds, are challenged to partner with the CEO in driving profitability.
I’m updating my previous statement … CPA/CFOs with a solid record of operational contributions offer a compelling value proposition.
