Quotes by Chief Financial Officers. Quotations by CFO's
Hi, do you know of a remarkable, humorous quote by Chief Financial Officers (CFOs)?
"As a leader in a company, the modern CFO needs to propel a culture of security. No longer is our job just about revenue, costs and budgets. There is a strong emphasis on managing risk, driving performance and ensuring the integrity and accuracy of company information."
Sankar Narayan, former CFO (now COO) of Xero
"I think it makes a lot of sense for IT to report to the CFO for the following reasons: IT will most likely get the most attention from the CFO. The CEO tends to “live in the future” and focus on vision, strategy, top line and product growth, and maybe gross margin expansion. The COO, if there is one, will tend to be more focused on the day to day tactics of keeping the trains running on time. IT is arguably in an between space that can be both long term strategic (especially when it comes to efficiently scaling a company) yet also day to day tactically important."
Kelly Battles, CFO of Quora.
