Chief Financial Officers (CFOs)have been reminded of their role and relations with CEO’s in ensuring the productivity of their various organizations. This was the message at the September Edition of the Nigeria-South Africa Chamber of Commerce Breakfast Forum held today in Lagos.
Guest Speaker and Chief Financial Officer, Coca-cola Nigeria Limited Mrs. Seun Oni who spoke on the topic: “Finance Function Transformation-An Imperative for Accelerating Business Growth” pointed out that although CFOs are usually partners in decision making, they are chief stewards of financial reports and resources.
She added that financial officers need to function at optimum to help organisations/institutions meet and deliver on the objectives set by the boards and shareholders.
This role, she emphasized is now all the more important in today’s resource challenged environment.
