A Humorous Look at a CFO's Top Duties

A recent story on AccountingWeb chronicled the rocky times at Microstrategy.

As an aside, The Motley Fool is at it again. The online pundit of finance and business-related issues has observed the latest goings-on at Microstrategy, and developed a list of the top five new duties of the recently appointed CFO.

They are (drum roll, please):

  • 5. Remove the company's 1999 annual report from the microwave,

  • 4. Hire Fawn Hall - shred, shred, shred,

  • 3. Strip stock-option wallpaper from office restrooms,

  • 2. Send e-apologies to existing shareholders, and

  • 1. Update resume.
