Doreen Remmen, CMA, CSCA, CAE, IMA's CFO and Senior Vice President of Operations, is our featured expert guest who speaks on behalf of IMA as she explains the role of today's CFO. In this episode, Doreen highlights and emphasizes how CFOs roles and responsibilities must go beyond the finance function and are truly business partners as they need to be an integral part in all aspects of the business. While this episode is another bonus release as part of our IMA-focused mini-series and Doreen shares her perspectives as IMA's CFO, much of her insight is applicable to all organizations because of how the industry and the role has evolved.
