The Corporate Controller is a pivotal position in the financial organization of any enterprise. The Council of Corporate Controllers will discuss how various members organize their accounting operations with a special emphasis on:
- Accounting policies and procedures
- Periodic financial reporting
- Comprehensive controls to mitigate risk
- Transaction accountable at all levels in the enterprise
- Compliance, internally and externally
- Talent Management
The historical role of the Corporate Controller focused on accounting regulations, general ledgers and accuracy. While still important, today’s Corporate Controller has to be more of a thinker with honed accounting, technology, analytical and leadership skills.
It is critical that today’s Corporate Controller have a broad view of the finance world, not only within his/her company and industry, but also across the financial spectrum of what other Corporate Controllers are doing to meet today’s challenges.
