A business must be fiscally healthy and have intelligent financial strategies to stay profitable. The chief financial officer takes the leading role in planning business strategies, providing financial projections and accounting, and overseeing the operation’s budget and implementation. Together with the other executives of a corporation, the CFO helps develop business programs by analyzing the financial terms and data.
In today’s edition of the Top Career 100 Podcast let’s join Felicia Gopaul, founder and president of the College Funding Resource as she interviews our financial officer guest—Michael Picchi.
Picchi has more than 20 fruitful years of experience in the corporate world by serving in various functions in the areas of corporate and financial management. Just recently, Picchi joined an Atlanta-based firm Allconnect, Inc.—a national leader in connecting consumers who are moving with essential home services as Chief Financial Officer.
Parts of his responsibilities for the company include overseeing all the financial operations aspects of a firm, such as accounting, treasury, risk management and corporate finance.
Picchi is a veteran of the clean energy, telecom and business services industries. He brings more than 20 years of management and finance experience, including successfully navigating an initial public offering (IPO). His leadership was recognized in 2009 when he was named CFO of the Year for medium-sized public companies by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
