The CFO’s Expanding Role – Operational Real Estate Strategy 

Today’s CFO is increasingly expected to have a strategic role in the operational side of the business, aligning the business strategy with the Corporate Location Strategy. Getting location decisions right up-front is becoming more widely known to make or break location decisions for years, typically with millions of dollars at stake. CFO’s that have this knowledge can be a strategic alliance partner with the CEO and the Leadership Team. 


By researching and triangulating primary field data, location risk can be mitigated up-front by understanding in more depth the viability, cost and quality before a location decision is made;

•           Identify and rank optimal labor pools to increase recruiting and reduce turnover. 

•           Achieve higher operational performance of functions through a superior workforce.

•           Estimate total labor, benefit, turnover, real estate and incentive costs/benefits by location.

•           Dispel location myths with real data.

•           Scenario modeling to compare all functions at HQ vs aligning functions by labor pool.
