We understand the office of the chief financial officer (OCFO) and the unique challenges and complexities that accompany the leadership and execution of a high performing financial organization. 

Many CFOs and the teams they lead have a span of control over traditional accounting, financial reporting, finance and treasury functions, and also strategic areas such as mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, and company risk management. Many even have heavy influence and make significant contributions in areas ranging from human resources to technology.

As the role of the OCFO has been expanded, precious resources within accounting and finance organizations have naturally become stretched to capacity. In addition to the inherent structural demands, certain events often drive the requirement for highly capable external teams to provide assistance when it matters most. Baker Tilly has the resources and experience to assist your company.
