Hannover Messe 2018 was held April 23-27 in Hanover, Germany.  This year, experts discussed the importance of digital transformation and how businesses could accomplish this goal.  Siemens Financial Services (SFS) helped customers explore how financing the digital future could lead to their businesses’ success.  SFS introduced a blueprint for Chief Financial Officers in a new whitepaper – CFO 4.0, Essential financial competencies for successful transition to Industry 4.0 – during the event.

Our future Chief Financial Officers must understand the competitive advantages of digital transformation and the competencies required to identify, evaluate and implement the digital transformation process. 

Initiatives such as Siemens’ Finance Leadership Development Program (FLDP) provide the next generation of young finance professionals with the opportunity to obtain strong experience working in a variety of industries at Siemens. We sat down with program graduate and credit analyst, Cameron Yeh, and program trainee, Kaylee Maynard, to find out the importance of embracing digital know-how in finance.
