The demands on today’s Chief Financial Officer have never been greater. Over the past 15 years, the business world has been shaken by corporate accounting scandals, the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, the meteoric rise of shareholder activism, and heightened reputational risks driven by social media.
The CFO has now become a powerful force in organizations and, after the CEO, is arguably the most critical hire a company will make. Through our “Future Fit CFO Community” search work with leading Turkish Boards, Chief Executive Officers and Chief Financial Officers, it has become evident that it is no longer enough for the CFO to be a functional or technical expert.
CFOs are increasingly looked on as excellent Chairs-in-waiting.
CFO’s are now expected to know more, do more, and contribute more to the overall success of their companies than ever before. In addition to first-class financial expertise, today’s CFO must relate effectively to the full scope of the business, from sales and marketing to technology and operations.
The expectation has expanded to include oversight over corporate functions such as IT and legal, which have historically reported directly to the CEO. Today, success requires that you should be strategic, operationally savvy, and forward-looking. As well as being able to influence a broad group of stakeholders, and to communicate in a straightforward, compelling manner.
