The Forward Thinking CFO – Episode 6 – Darrell Cox

In episode 6 of The Forward Thinking CFO, we speak to Darrell Cox, Chief Financial Officer at our technology partner, Vena Solutions. Vena is a leading cloud technology platform in the corporate performance management arena and is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.

Vena is a leading cloud technology platform in the corporate performance management arena and is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.

Darrell joined Vena in 2014 as CFO at the very early stages of its growth journey and was the first non-founding member of the management team. He has since overseen the scaling up and rapid growth of the business. This experience and his early adventures in finance, and even door to door sales, have shaped him into the down to earth and authentic CFO we speak with today.

Darrell’s journey and insights provide many topics to explore, including:

– The importance of a robust management operating process across multiple dimensions of a CFOs playbook

– How the role of the CFO is one of storytelling, building trust, and motivating and aligning individuals and teams

– And we also talked about the dynamic and impactful role of the CFO in balancing growth, cash, and the timing, frequency, and size of fundraising activities in a high growth environment.

Darrell shared with us the importance he places on authenticity as a finance professional, and how essential that is in the DNA of today’s forward thinking CFO.

We had a great time recording this conversation with Darrell and personally took away some great gems of insight, which we believe you will benefit from.
