A Chief Financial Officer (CFO) must understand the operations of the business and how the financial system interrelates with operations. Their duties would include tracking cash flow, financial planning and analyzing the company’s financial strengths and weaknesses and proposing corrective actions. They must understand capital, business funding and know how to manage cash. Additionally, they must know strategy, see the whole picture, make decisions, be able to understand people and be an effective communicator. Many small to medium businesses owners realize they want the professional financial services that a CFO provides but cannot afford to hire one full-time.
