The role of a CFO and value that a CFO provides has seen a number of disparate definitions of the role. In this article, we analyse the evolution of the position through time and its progression into the future. We are interested in unravelling the differing evaluations of the CFO through our findings to create clarity to the workforce and educational sector.

We consider how the role interfaces within the hierarchical chain and to the added value provided to those in governance. We demonstrate how the CFO adds value and in so doing, is a dynamic pivotal executive in an organisation. We conclude with a greater appreciation and understanding of who the current CFO is and the future of such.

Review quote

"CFO: The True Meaning Behind the Title is an unparalleled scholarly research article that challenges traditional thinking on the role of Finance and will shape the future education and research framework for CFO'ship, to help define the necessary skills of CFO's in future recruitment and their career development journeys.

This is an invaluable read for any Finance Professional in their endeavours to address their academic and professional skills, and strategic business partnership success to the senior management position of CFO and beyond."

Peter Booth, Professor Emeritus, past Senior VP, Provost and Deputy VC of UTS and Advisory Board Member at Academy Global.

"CFO's are misunderstood as solely finance centric accountants, sadly ignoring the 'Dynamic Pivotal Executive' in the new Executive C-Suite who is driving performance growth through strategic thought leadership. This research article clearly defines the role, value adding analysis, insightful reporting and has developed the CFO Framework that was a missing piece. A must read for all aspiring to, and in the C-Suite."
