Chicago, IL—July 6, 2021—A new Digital Controller/CFO™ Study is announced by the Controllers Council. The national study explores how managing technology is becoming a significant responsibility for corporate accounting and finance executives. The study results will be previewed at a complimentary webcast scheduled for Tuesday, September 21, 1 PM CST.

The Digital Controller/CFO Study is based on a national survey. The results will identify how accounting and finance roles in corporate technology are evolving to include managing spend, automating back office systems, implementing AI/ML/RPA, and participating in or leading digital transformation initiatives.

The Digital Controller/CFO Webcast will preview the results of this important study for the first time. Produced by the Controllers Council, a member association and community focused on accounting and corporate finance training and resources, career development, peer interaction, and recognition. Panelists include CFO Ted Weitzel, and others to be announced. The webcast will be moderated by Lindy Antonelli, Controllers Council Board Chair, and partner at Armanino.

“Our 2020 Changing Roles Study identified how corporate accounting and finance roles have changed dramatically. The new Digital Controller/CFO Study focuses on technology as another role including back-office finance and across the organization”, states Neil Brown, Controllers Council Executive Director. “All accounting and corporate finance executives are encouraged to take the survey and receive a complimentary copy of the study report.”
