Accountants and finance professionals are valuable assets in the firms and corporations they represent. They provide fiscal insight that guides critical business decisions, tax-saving strategies that benefit the bottom line, and verification of data and processes that keep the company’s operations running smoothly. In short, accountants make a difference. And they’re rewarded for it; at the top of their game, firm partners and corporate CFOs often make lucrative seven-figure salaries.
