Experienced controllers can bring value to a company well beyond basic financial reporting. A good controller provides financial insights that a business owner needs to make informed business decisions. As a key member of the management team, they can serve as an adviser to the entire organization by helping department heads prepare budgets and monitor results through the year. Good controllers have the critical thinking skills to prepare “what if” analysis. Forwarding thinking controllers can positively impact a company’s top and bottom line results.
If you desire to take your company to the next level and believe you are ready to hire a Controller, consult with your advisors (CPA, HR Consultant, Business Coach) to determine the right experience you need to help your business move to the next level.
