More women being named to CFO role

Brenda Morris, CPA, CGMA, was told she’d never be a CFO. But her written plan, developed years earlier, told her otherwise.

In 1998, she reported to the COO of a company that did not have a CFO. She was the controller then, and she told the manager, in a performance review, that she wanted to be the company CFO. As Morris tells it:

“He said, ‘Brenda, it’s a lovely goal, a wonderful goal. But you are never going to be a CFO.’ ”

“I said, ‘Why?’ Because I was stunned that he would be that direct.”
