Pillars of CFO Success

Steve Rosvold 0:00 Here’s how I define the roles of a CFO. There are four pillars: Accounting, Finance, Treasury, and Leadership. Each one of those areas has other parts to it. But if those areas are really important to run well in your company, there’s a good chance you need a CFO.

Steve Rosvold 0:15 The treasury piece is the one that says, well, we’re borrowing money we need that expertise. The finance piece is where you might be investing in new businesses, either M&A, or projects or investing. You need somebody who can analyze and do a good job with financial analysis and investment analysis. The accounting side, you want to get those quick closes done, so you can use that information to make decisions.
