The CFO – Your Financial Strategist
A CFO has the financial birds-eye-view to develop forward-looking strategic thinking; they understand different cash management policies to help through challenging times; they help prepare a company for both the known and unknown or unexpected financial obligations, using strategies that make sense for the circumstances.
Do you launch bleeding-edge products? If so, you understand it’s not just about product design, sales, and marketing – the CFO is the team member you need to help with the financial aspect of a new product, such as how to price it, is it making money, should we discontinue an old product.
Want to offer new employee benefits? How much will that idea cost over time?
Considering expansion to a new city, or buying up a competitor? Where do you start?
These are areas where the CFO provides financial strategy and leadership throughout the process.
So, what was your question again – why do you need a CFO? That’s why.
