Working as a Business Controller means being accountable for the financial representation of a business’s activities from many different angles. It requires experience in a variety of domains and is made tremendously more efficient when closely tied to the implementation of related systems & processes in order to deliver predictable, reliable results. This means building yourself a rich toolbox, all the while relying on a deeply ingrained operating framework.
Obviously that kind of rich background isn’t built in a void. I owe my gratitude to the many colleagues with whom I interact on an ongoing basis. In no particular order, these include or have included: Accountants, Controllers, CEOs, CFOs, Human Resources Specialists, Project Managers, Purchasing Specialists, Developers, Technical Infrastructure Specialists, Legal Counselors, Shop Floor Operators, Tax Specialists, Auditors, Marketing Specialists, Salespeople, … They all help – or helped – make my work environment rich in challenges, learning opportunities and even good fun.
