The corporate finance chief: faced with a do or die role change
Of all the management posts in a company, probably no other in the last 30 years has faced as many changes. CFOs are subject to a process of continual renewal.
Financial directors, who, until the 80s spent most of their time balancing company accounts, have evolved to having a more strategic role, a tendency which has grown exponentially since the 2008 crisis, when companies, beset by the difficulty of accessing credit, turned to their CFOs for innovative solutions in matters affecting a wide range of business areas.
This change shows that the role of the Corporate Finance Chief requires specific qualities, among others, a strong capacity to adapt, and, above all, to keep up to date and ready to take advantage of all the technological advances that contribute to making their job more efficient.
