The Life and Career of a Controller: What You Need to Know w/Coulson Painter | CFO Weekly, Ep. 41

March 30, 2021

With a background and Master's degree in Tax, Coulson Painter, CPA is not your typical Corporate Controller. On this episode of CFO Weekly, Painter shares his journey with us, and some excellent advice for anyone new to the Controller role. First, come in with an open mind: Commit to learning, and commit to admitting your mistakes (because nobody does this job without making a few). Second, break the role down to a day at a time: Instead of looking at the long term, focus on the short term. And finally, know that it will get easier. You won’t always be as stressed as you were in your first few weeks, or before your first big audit. Want to hear the rest of Coulson’s story?
