  • Top 10 Chief Accounting Officers - 2021

    A chief accounting officer or CAO is an extremely familiar title in the financial sector. The CAO oversees all accounting activities, such as financial reporting and expense management processes. CAOs' emphasis comprises regulatory enforcement and procedures and the creation of financial plans in cooperation with the CFO. While the Chief Financial Officer is incharge of the fiscal side of the whole company, with domains of costs, budgets, responsibilities or even economic policies and projections, the CAO concentrates more on corporate reports - ensuring that all lead accounts, expenses and policy on cost controls are in effect. The CAO concentrates more on the day-to-day expenses of the business. Companies are recruiting more CAOs to free up the resources of the CFO to focus on more strategic work outside the business. According to work surveys, the number of CAO names has increased by almost 40 percent since 2015. A company's Chief Accounting Officer is a valuable asset, particularly because he or she can free up the CFO's time to engage with the board of directors and investors. The market for CAOs will rise as businesses continue to develop and extend internationally. Finance departments of smaller businesses undergoing expansion, on the other hand, will benefit from hiring a CAO to handle their taxes and payroll. In this issue of CEO Insights magazine, a list of ‘Top 10 Chief Accounting Officers - 2021' is provided to the readers by a team of industry veterans, CEOs and VCs, and the CEO Insights magazine editorial team, with detailed information about their experience in the field and services provided.
