The role of the CFO has evolved in the last decade. In addition to managing a company’s financial resources, today’s CFO often help CEOs make major business decisions. Many of today’s senior financial officers also manage human resources or IT. To be successful, a candidate must reveal an excellent aptitude for finances and strategic thinking as well as strong management skills.
To hire a strong CFO, many companies rely on the CEO to prescreen and interview candidates. “Selecting a winning CFO is one of the most important aspects of a CEO’s job,” says Amy Errett, an entrepreneur quoted in an CFO staffing article for Inc. “Finding exactly the right person is a difficult task and requires a CEO’s ability to understand the most important skills.”
