The worst job to fill just got worse. Our Property Accountants and Real Estate Accountants are under siege by other industries. Requests for CFO teams who have a track record dealing with Board of Director Activists are rising by 25%, reports the WSJ. What many now look for in a CFO team is what the Whole Foods Market, Inc. activists are demanding, “A background in real estate, cost-cutting and store (business) economics.” While we do well filling positions for Accountants, Controllers, CFO’s and their teams, it is not because it is easy. It is not in their DNA to do anything without immense deliberation. Thankfully, our jobs stay up for 60 days to allow for marinating when presented with the perfect opportunity. Clients who have posted other financial positions often are surprised by fewer results, but this is the foremost category where quality, not quantity, is the name of the game. A great CFO can cut the costs while revealing the paramount opportunities.
