Thinking Outside the Box about the CFO Role w/ Mike dePaschalis | Video Episode 45

April 27, 2021

You might assume that a CFO has to have only an accounting background. And at one point in history, you’d have been right. But over the last several years, some of the top companies in the world have seen a drop in CPAs being hired as CFOs. This week's video episode will give you a glimpse at what it means when professionals start thinking outside the box.

Meaning that an accounting degree, or a CPA certification, is no longer the requirement it once was - if you’re dreaming of being a CFO. So instead, what should you be focused on? Mike dePaschalis says that, of course, you should have the finance skills needed to do the job. But the role is so much bigger than that. And your experience may be more relevant than you might think.
