Proudest career moments
Bob led the Deloitte team on a global Finance and HR Transformation project for a large Consumer Products organization. The project entailed transforming many aspects of finance and touched upon various finance processes and organizations. The team helped the organization to create Global KPI’s and a worldwide management reporting structure, which was put into place to support and report on the new KPI’s. Economic Profit concepts were introduced throughout the organization and global budgeting and planning was changed. The historic approach to consolidations was transformed to help the organization to efficiently close the books and integrate acquisitions. The project helped to reduce the overall cost of finance by 20% while increasing the effectiveness of the function.
"… I’ve been working in Finance at Deloitte for the last 14 years and it is a thrill to see the changes in our practice. A decade ago, we occasionally worked with CFOs on transforming their organizations. Today, we are sought after by the leading companies in the world to help them modernize finance to better meet the demands of Wall Street and the Globally Competitive marketplace. It’s a real honor to be the service line leader in the world’s number one finance consulting practice!"
