How Frank is building a better working world

Frank is passionate about helping CFOs build new capabilities and technologies within the finance function while supporting them to develop as leaders.

As part of this, Frank helps organizations recognize that sustainable finance requires an understanding that long-term value, growth and sustainability are inherently linked. CFOs are custodians of their businesses and must communicate across the organization, to capital markets and society how their business model is changing to provide a healthy future outlook.
