Chris Argent is Founder and Managing Director at Generation CFO – an organisation that guides businesses and individuals to reengineer themselves through our thought leadership, training and digital finance transformation.
Frustrated by poor systems, poor reporting and lack of time to work with the business, in 2009, Chris Argent set up a LinkedIn group looking for technology-minded accountants and finance professionals to help him out.
After moving from SME CFO to Enterprise Finance Transformation Lead, Chris experienced first hand advanced technology being used in multiple organisations and can see the massive potential for finance use.
The demand for digital transformation and strategic finance business partnering continues to grow and Chris believed pressure will be applied to CFOs to create a more data-rich, digital finance function, so started to collate and curate some of the most relevant information posted on his LinkedIn group to his blog, Generation CFO. The aim to bring digital native innovators in accounting together with the senior finance leadership change makers.
