To answer this question, DePaul University Ezerski Chair and
Accountancy Professor Mark L. Frigo and Paul L. Walker, Schiro/Zurich Chair in
Enterprise Risk Management at St. John’s University, conducted interviews with
financial executives from top companies.
“The scope of CFOs’ responsibilities toward enterprise risk
management has been expanding,” Frigo says. “We wanted to identify the
capabilities that CFOs need to have today, as well as tomorrow, to manage risk
and anticipate disruptions before they impact organizations.”
Frigo and Walker’s research report, “The Strategic Financial
Executive: Managing Enterprise Risk in a Disruptive World,” was sponsored by
Grant Thornton and published by the Financial Executives Research Foundation. Click
