The Federal CFO Viewpoint

Being two-faced may be a slur, but saying a federal Chief Financial Officer is four-faced is quite the compliment. The Federal CFO Insights radio program says federal government CFOs balance four faces: steward, operator, strategist and catalyst.

To learn how they do that, you can listen to online replay of the program's interview with United States Patent and Trademark Office CFO Barry Hudson.

Deloitte Principal (and former Office of Personnel CFO) Christopher Young talks to Hudson about how CFOs balance the more traditional finance reporting role with that of a strategist focused on contributing value to the overall organization.

While you’re at the site, you can download prior programs including one on GSA's Federal Greening Acquisition and Buildings Initiatives and another featuring Department of Energy CFO Steve Isakowitz discussing why federal CFOs are spending so much time on talent management.
