A number of logistics and transportation services (LTS) companies are undergoing a “systems refresh” in the finance function today. Their chief financial officers (CFOs) must make crucial decisions about which technology investments will drive innovation, enhance strategy, and turbo-charge operations.
At the same time, CFOs must secure finance talent—from whatever source—with a wider range of competencies than yesterday’s narrow finance executive. They need people who understand the value of technology and data to top-line growth in new services, and bottom-line savings. These new needs and an expanding industry are pushing LTS companies to hire from outside traditional channels.
