Townsend Managing Director Dan Ellis recently sat down with The Modern CFO podcast to share his perspective on the challenges, strategies, and invaluable lessons that aspiring CFOs and those seeking effective financial leadership should consider as they navigate today’s hiring landscape.

It’s always important to have a good pulse on the market. And this comes into a little bit of how do you develop into a CFO. As an aspiring CFO, being in contact with the recruiter can really help you be more strategic with developing your skill set.

Making sure that you’re deliberate and strategic with your career development is something that a recruiter can help counsel or advise.
