“The role of the CFO will change dramatically in the next couple of years,” said Brentwood Search Managing Partner, Marcia Basichis. “Digital Finance will transform the role of the CFO evolution from central cost authority to business value architect."

Brentwood Search has been developing a comprehensive strategy to assist Chief Financial Officers in their recruiting efforts to create the integrated staffing teams that will meet the demands of what is being called the Age of Digital Finance, that many corporate entities are implanted at a rapid rate. According to a January, 2016 article in Forbes, the digital finance imperative will profoundly transform the role of every C-level executive, and CFO.

“The role of the CFO will change dramatically in the next couple of years,” said Brentwood Search Managing Partner, Marcia Basichis. “Digital Finance will transform the role of the CFO evolution from central cost authority to business value architect. The Disruptive CFO will be playing the lead role in what amounts to a three-stage digital journey. As analytics are falling increasingly under the purview of the CFO, he will need an integrated team and end to end analytical capability to bridge the gap between strategic and operational decision-making.

“Brentwood Search is designing a flexible strategy for its clients so not only can they recruit the optimum talent for the CFO position but also the supporting team he will need in this new age of digital finance. In the near future you will not only need to recruit MBA’s and CPA’s in the traditional finance roles. As such, Brentwood search is poised to recruit statisticians, data scientists, behavioral scientists, economists, and those with every necessary skill set to staff the evolving finance organization.”

Basichis pointed out that Brentwood Search has placed big data scientists, business intelligence executives, and specialists in integrated analysis. She noted she has been placing more and more of these professionals into global financial departments.

“The CFO and the finance sector in general will have among its staff personnel with far more diver skillsets than the conventional model of old. Owning analytics will allow them to assume strategic leadership responsibilities, while maximizing revenue, and establishing deeper relationships with leaders throughout their organization. To do so they will require a team that is both nimbler and well rounded.

“Brentwood Search is keeping up with the times and looking into the future. We are here for our clients to make this happen.”
