Financial Officers

A high value business partner.

Korn Ferry’s Financial Officer Center of Expertise assists companies in attracting, developing, and retaining exemplary Chief Financial Officers and senior finance executives who possess best-in-class leadership, finance, and operational skills. As a strategic business partner, CFOs with operational and general management finesse and the ability to develop the finance team are in critical demand. We offer a full range of solutions designed specifically to address CFO talent needs — from strategic search services, competency-based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.

Acquiring CFO talent is good. Building bench strength is better.

Today’s sought-after CFOs possess strategic finance skills in capital planning, mergers and acquisitions, business planning, investor relations, tax, and FP&A as well as operational capabilities that can grow the business. In addition, they must guarantee the integrity of the organization’s financial condition and reported results, enhance shareholder value, establish optimal risk management, and keep a sharp eye on costs — all while scrutiny from the government, board directors, and shareholders continues to increase. In a highly competitive market for this role, the ability to develop an internal succession strategy is of utmost importance.

For the greatest return on finance talent, invest in potential.
