Strategy+Business Article on the change in the role of CFO…from head bean counter to business partner of the CEO. I suspect that the role had to evolve since technology is so heavily leveraged in finance operations. It’s almost Darwinian.

    Hey Heather,

    I would have loved to read the article, but it is asking for a user id 🙁 Anyway, I loved an interview of your ex-CFO John Connors that appeared in McKinsey Quarterly. John and I are both alums of Deloitte.

    If you have not read the interview, here’s the link:
