The Contemporary Controller—Changing Roles and Responsibilities

Benchmark Study (2020)

The year 2020 was certainly the most chaotic business environments in recent history. No question, roles and responsibilities have changed dramatically for C-Suite executives. We believe Controllers, CFOs and corporate finance executives have witnessed some of most seismic change.

So in the Fall of 2020, the Controllers Council undertook a comprehensive benchmark study, surveying more than 300 Controllers, CFOs, and related professionals in accounting and corporate finance roles. The objective of the study:  to identify how the roles and responsibilities of these important executives have changed, adapted and evolved.

The conclusions are insightful, carefully documented and analyzed in this Benchmark Study Report. Download now:
