The CFO is the executive officer who oversees handling of funds, presenting financial records, maintaining financial controls, and coordinating financial planning for a corporation. Most importantly, the CFO is an advisor to the CEO and helps the corporation stay on course to achieve peak performance. This is accomplished by integrating the operating and financing strategy so that the company and its owners, investors, and shareholders are ultimately successful. The CFO provides the experience and strategic vision necessary for a corporation to achieve its optimal capital structure and manage investor expectations. A seasoned CFO adds tremendous value when a company considers capital events or strategic opportunities (e.g. capital raising, restructuring, mergers, acquisitions, divestitures). In recent years, the role of the CFO has become much more vital in the development of a firm's overall strategy. Therefore, Interlochen CFOs often become an integral part of the management team.
