How to Live with your CFO: Fixing a Dysfunctional CFO-CEO Relationship

CFO CEO Relationship

The best way to build a strong, profitable and sustainable company is to start with a solid CFO-CEO relationship.

The CFO who Fired Himself

A funny thing happened to me during the 5th year of my 3rd start-up: I fired myself. The company continued on, but I walked away. Why? I could say that the company could no longer afford a CFO. (Sales had dipped during the recession, and I was working at half pay.) But that’s just an excuse.
