Want to Be a CFO? You’ll Need More Than an Accounting Degree

Curated by Paul Helmick

I’m a Technology CEO and Experienced Entrepreneur. I love helping people use technology to grow their business.

  • To be a CFO today you must keep up with an ever changing technological landscape
  • Increasingly almost of every area of finance is technology driven.
  • CFO’s must work more closely with chief information officers and other digital executives.
  • Being CFO is now a balancing act that requires tending to the traditional post of information steward and business advisor while heralding a new vision for the finance department.
  • Essentially, we’re moving from a CPA-type CFO to an MBA-type CFO. Rather than chief bean counters, they need to be business managers who can lead and inspire an entire organization.
