About this episode

As the CFO or senior finance professional, you proactively develop partnerships with your CEO or founder. In fact, our experience suggests that the strongest CFOs are those who quickly partner with their CEOs to drive growth, manage costs, and communicate with the board and investors.

In this episode of The Startup CFO's Road Map to Success Podcast series, host Conor Moore and Joe Yuen, leader of the Venture Capital practice in KPMG's San Francisco office, discuss why it is critically important for new CFOs to establish a collaborative relationship with the CEO and be the CEO’s trusted partner.

Duration: Approximately 5 minutes.
