‘The CFO must learn to think like a venture capitalist and develop new capacities. Ideally, he is a people manager, an inspirator, someone who can express a total approach.’
Xavier Gabriëls, Head Financial Management
The CFO of the future has four characteristics. Besides being an excellent operational manager he needs to be a strategist, a predictive analyst and a talent manager.
We help clients define the role of finance in driving their strategic business imperatives. This helps the CFO to clearly articulate the department’s vision and strategy, analyze its performance and develop a future state operating model that is fit for purpose. This involves a wide ranging review of the finance function, matching performance to business requirements and diagnosing areas for improvement across the finance landscape.
