From back-office accountant to front-line executive, the rapid rise of the chief financial officer is unrivalled by any other corporate role. With access to every facet of the business, CFOs now wield a level of influence matched only by chief executives.

This book explains how CFOs earned their privileged position, and what the future may hold for them. It describes their ever-expanding role, and how they are transforming their departments to help them deal with it. With insights from current and former CFOs, it benefits from a first-hand perspective on finance leaders' aspirations and doubts. A useful reference for finance chiefs to learn from peers and benchmark their own performance; this book is for those looking to build a career in corporate finance; managers seeking to improve their relationship with the finance department; and service providers - banks, accountancies and consulting firms, among others - that want to get on the good side of the keeper of the corporate chequebook.
