From Backroom to Boardroom: Revolutionizing Core Functions at a Payment Solutions Leader
By elevating its corporate functions, the company transformed traditional roles into strategic powerhouses, setting a new benchmark in the payments industry.
Unlocking Hidden Potential
Despite its industry leadership, the payment solutions titan felt its CFO, FP&A and HR teams were untapped reservoirs of strategic influence. These core functions, traditionally relegated to support roles, had the potential to shape the firm’s strategic vision. However, several challenges loomed:
- Role Perception: Prevailing views restricted these departments to administrative confines.
- Tech Deficiencies: A lack of modern analytical tools hindered insightful data-driven strategies.
- Cultural Inertia: To usher in change, deeply ingrained perceptions about these departments needed an overhaul.
