FD - Finance Director


Finance Director - older style European term (also Controller is some countries) for CFO. Responsible for the control and management of the financial affairs of the company. Key role, not usually high profile/visibility, but responsible for keeping finances on track, ensuring the business has the controlled environment in which to grow, and protect shareholders' money.


Finance Director - same as USA term CFO. The person who likes to say 'no' - the blocker of all business? No, a person who is not a fool, and will ensure that the company spends money on things that help the company - not someone else's ambitions. An essential ingredient and control device in running sound business. The signatory to big Purchase Orders!
