The new CFO: Today's path to the C-Suite
The path to becoming a CFO is no longer as clear as it once was. If you want to be a CFO, do you need a business degree? Do you need to be an accountant?

We sit down with Andrew E. Page, EVP and CFO of Foot Locker, Inc., to gain insight on what he wished he'd known starting out, and the traits he thinks are most important for a CFO in 2022 and beyond.
