Financial Officers

Today’s Financial Officers must shoulder a seemingly endless range of responsibilities. They must fend off activist investors, ensure compliance, and manage global capital flows. The CFO in particular is often tasked with the oversight of transformation, innovation, and other far-reaching initiatives. And the financial function itself is undergoing significant change, becoming more automated and capable of providing rich analytic insights for those who can harness them.

All of this change requires a new type of Financial Officer. These leaders must be adaptable, innovative, and fast. The CFO must not only lead this group but agitate for better performance, generate insights for the rest of the C-suite, and stand as the CEO’s closest advisor. At Egon Zehnder, our Financial Officers Practice works hand-in-hand with the board and chief executives of all ownership structures — publicly and privately held companies, private equity portfolio companies, and family-owned businesses — to help them identify, develop, and recruit the financial leaders of the future. Because we come directly from industry, we are able to leverage our experience and networks to help build entire finance leadership teams — including Controllers, Treasurers, and Heads of Tax, Investor Relations, Corporate Development, and Internal Audit. We also design succession plans and build a pipeline of internal CFO candidates.

With 68 offices in 40 countries, we have the global reach to help you find the right finance leadership team and create a finance function that serves as a key strategic resource to both the CEO and the board.
