Gary Bender

CEO and Founder of The CFO Solution

I am always happy when half of my team moves out of finance into other parts of the company. It gives me a chance to bring new opportunities to my finance folks and – I like to say in a disrespectful but joking way – raise the financial IQ of the whole organization by exporting the finance people.
