Argon ST’s CFO Aaron Daniels spoke with the ExecutiveBiz about what it means to head up finances at a government contractor: “A CFO’s value is just something that evolves over time, in my experience. It’s like trust or respect: it’s not granted, it’s earned. You need a willingness to jump into situations and see if there’s an aspect of a challenge that the CFO can lend support to. Sometimes there is and sometimes there isn’t. You also need a willingness at the same time to be a bit of a wall flower and to be an observer and to support the organization on a more indirect basis when the situation calls for that. You maybe need to be a little bit of a chameleon inside the organization and being able to adapt to the circumstance to provide that underpinning of support while also driving growth, change and value creation.”
