CFOs Drive Business Growth

CFOs must drive toward sustained revenue growth while improving margins

Finance’s aim is business growth

Most CFOs have learned how to manage costs efficiently, but their organizations are still not growing as fast as investors would like. Many finance functions use outdated approaches to growth investments and struggle to keep pace with today's digital business environment.

“We no longer focus on ‘why you’re off budget.’ Instead we set targets and relevant forecasts and discuss how the business can come together to deliver the outcome.”

Andrew Westermeyer

Finance Director for Group Services, RCL Foods
