Research Report: The Redefined CFO

A new global study from Sage shows that Finance leaders in the US are redefining what it means to be a CFO.


In recent years, the world has altered so dramatically that it’s impacting business models. In the U.S., finance leaders believe their level of responsibility for the digital, strategy, and social responsibility aspects of their organization has increased. These changing models and duties demand different kinds of leaders to ensure continued company progression.

It is becoming evident that CFOs with non-traditional skills or responsibilities are needed to shape a successful future. Specifically, three key CFO personas are emerging: Chief Facilitative Officers, Chief Fairness Officers, and Chief Future Officers. Some leaders already conform to these classifications, while others aspire towards them.

In this report, we look at how the role of the CFO has changed and what the impact of these new CFO personas will mean for businesses in 2022 and beyond.
