CAO spotlight: Rise of the strategic chief accounting officer

CAOs are doubling down on digital to balance their traditional role and new strategic opportunities to make an impact in the C-suite.

In a changed world, CAOs have new opportunities to play a more valued role as partners to the business. CAOs are increasingly focusing on technology to implement stronger controls in the remote/hybrid environment, and improve the governance and compliance processes. Moreover, they are using the power of technology to unlock data and sharing strategic viewpoints to ignite key business initiatives.

Based on our third annual CAO survey, a new KPMG paper—CAO spotlight: Illuminating the value of the strategic chief accounting officer—shows the opportunities for strategic CAOs to contribute and work in collaboration with the C-suite on value-driven business decisions. By implementing technology to work (even more) digitally, manage risk, and deliver business insights, CAOs can have more impact than ever.
