It’s almost time to leave 2020 in the rearview mirror. And while this year has been full of ups and downs, it's taught us a lot. On this episode of CFO Weekly, we sat down with Glen Parrillo, CPA, VP of Finance & Controller of AccuWeather to talk all about the past, present, and what the future holds for accounting.
We covered so much during our conversation, but Glen left our listeners with three things that every CFO should be paying attention to as we head into 2021. First, focus on the dynamic nature of the industry: Stay nimble and flexible. The organizations that have come out of this pandemic largely unscathed are the ones that adapted early and often. Second, focus on risk management: This industry is getting more and more complex every day.
Understanding how to best protect your company from the onslaught of risk is key to succeeding in 2021. And third, focus on talent: We’re only as good as the people we surround ourselves with. Listen to the entire interview to hear more of Glen's tips on everything from the changing role of the Controller, what the future holds for accounting, and when to implement automation and the silver linings and lessons learned in 2020.
