A national, benchmark study titled, “The Contemporary Controller—Changing Roles and Responsibilities,” was recently completed on the subject of changing roles of corporate accounting and finance professionals during this chaotic year, along with key impacts, and expectations for 2021 and beyond.

The objective of the study was to identify how the duties and responsibilities of Controllers, CFOs and other Accounting and Corporate Finance professionals changed due to pandemic and economic environments, and how these executives are adapting and evolving.

Produced by the Controllers Council, a community and association for Controllers, CFOs, and related executives, the benchmark study surveyed more than 300 professionals across the United States and North America in the Fall of 2020, including all types and sizes for organizations.

“No question, 2020 witnessed seismic change for corporate finance organizations,” states Neil Brown, Controllers Council Executive Director. “This comprehensive study identifies and analyzes key impacts, changing and more strategic roles, and future responsibilities of these important executives."

The Contemporary Controller—Changing Roles and Responsibilities–Study Report preview is now available to the public; the complete Study Report is now available free to Controllers Council members and journalists, and others for a modest fee. Click here to access or learn more about the report.
