 Challenging the Traditional CFO Hiring Model

The founding of The Energy CFO® is a story about an experienced industry CFO who challenged the conventional thinking and hiring models in technically complex industries, like oil and gas and oilfield services, and her convincing case to business owners in favor of CFO Leadership As-A-Service.  It is a story that illustrates how creative, critical thinking entrepreneurs are leveraging their corporate experience, new technology, and collaborative as-a-service networks to help business owners do more with fewer dollars. 


Shale Magazine got Paula to share her story on their radio show "In the Oil Patch" in her own words at the start of the energy downturn.  This one Shale episode has been played more than 24,000 times.   Be sure to check out In the Oil Patch Episode 19 on Sound Cloud.
