Unpacking the CFO Survey Results

AGA Accountability Talks Podcast

By Caitlin Holmes

Guidehouse’s Caitlin Holmes sits down with Bret Edwards, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the AGA, Paul Marshall for an installment of the Accountability Talks podcast to discuss the results of the 2023 CFO Survey.

The latest CFO Survey Series Report, conducted in partnership with AGA, explores how the CFO shapes organizational approaches to advanced technologies. To effectively deploy resources on technology, CFOs must emphasize relevant skill sets, effective collaboration, strong data management, and clear governance.

"The report did a particularly good job of saying, "This isn't all about tech." It talked about skill set sets like project management and influencing and communications and analytics. Those are equally important. If you have the skills to utilize these technologies to make changes within your organization, it's important that you also have sales skills."

— Bret Edwards, Chief Financial Officer at the FDIC

Listen to the podcast episode where speakers Caitlin, Bret and Paul cover the key factors and considerations for CFOs when considering and implementing advanced technology.
