In addition to the many long-term implications of the pandemic, the connector role that the CFO has as the CEOs key support has been reinforced. However, it exists a considerable difference in the perceptions of CEOs and CFOs about the valuable attributes of the CFO role, as well as a difference in the perception of which are the main challenges that CFOs are currently facing. These different perceptions, and the beforementioned reinforcement of the collaboration between CEO and CFO have made it clear that we should bring these two roles together to discuss and align views.
