5 Best-Kept Secrets From Today's Most Successful CFOs

January 25, 2023 Sarah Dameron

From managing a role that's evolving all the time to leading multinational corporations through times of unprecedented change, the successful CFO and all other financial leaders do the work that stewards the assets of the world's working economies. It's a job that's largely done behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.

Yet, the CFO's viewpoint is a crucial one, and if you can flag a finance leader down long enough to share theirs, you'll often find that it's one worth magnifying. You'll also find that the CFO viewpoint is much more complex than just sharing the numbers. The CFO role now pushes the strategic vision of the companies they helm.

With this in mind, we’ve talked with 50-plus CFOs over the past year about everything from career progression and leadership to cost containment and remote work via our podcast, CFO Weekly.
