A Chief Financial Officer (CFO) means different things at different times in a company’s history.
The CFO at Apple, for example, will spend most of his time on investor relations (keeping Wall Street happy) and overall strategy.
By contrast, the CFO at a startup with under 50 people will spend most of her time on operational matters such as:
- designing/implementing systems
- developing a library of forms (employment agreements, outbound software license agreements…)
- administrative matters (employee benefits, liability insurance, leasing an office…)
