CFO talent can be found from any industry sector, although it is helpful if the Finance person has both solid management accounting and statutory experience. Invest plenty of time in sound references and verifications. Criminal checks are critical as this role is a pivotal role in an organisation. This is where a search firm may be helpful. If your company is in manufacturing then knowledge of inventory management, cost of goods and forecasting will be important. We like accountants who have worked in both a large disciplined consultancy and a hands-on mid-sized business to understand business dynamics.
