FEI Canada's CFO Leadership Beyond Finance program gives senior finance executives the tools they need to succeed in the C-suite; Trimac Transportation's Scott Calver and Bank of Canada's Carmen Vierula prove it.

When Scott Calver told his father what he planned to do for a living, he almost cried. Many parents have been there, wincing at the news that young John or Jane has decided to pursue an unlikely career in music, film, or art. Calver didn't want to be a musician, an actor, or an artist, however. He wanted to be an accountant. "My dad was in sales, and he spent his entire career fighting with accountants," says Calver, now vice president of finance and CFO at Trimac Transportation, a publicly traded trucking company based in Calgary. "When he was trying to accomplish something, accountants at his company always told him no. So he saw the accounting function as being nothing more than overhead and a roadblock." Calver saw it as something else entirely: a resource. "I've always thought that the finance department could support the business and be part of the reason that the business is successful," explains Calver, who says CFOs must set a tone in which finance is an enabler of business rather than an obstacle to it. Accountants don't acquire those skills at university, according to Calver, who says formal finance education is typically biased toward technical training. The CFO Leadership Beyond Finance Program-whose first graduates, including Calver, completed the program this past September-consists of three three-day modules taken during the course of a year. To help executives such as Vierula and Calver adapt to their new, more strategic roles, FEI Canada surveyed and interviewed CFOs and CEOs across the country to determine what skills senior finance executives need in order to be valued C-level contributors-and which of those skills they lack. "What really made the program so successful for me was the fact that you're not just sitting in a classroom listening to lectures from your average university professor," Calver says. Just two modules into the three-module program, Calver had personally logged nearly 100 of them. "I'd written pages and pages of notes," he says. "Each note is a bullet point-something either the professor or the Executive in Residence said that resonated with me." One note, for example, reads, "Manage by context. "When you're a bean counter focused only on accounting, you manage by control," Calver says.


Labour shortage in supply chain and logistics: What you need to know

Employers, such as Scott Calver, CFO of trucking firm Trimac Transportation Ltd., was cited in the Globe and Mail as saying the shortage in the transportation industry is serious and getting worse.
"Trimac and other trucking firms are having trouble getting unemployed drivers to move to places where there are jobs. "What is disappointing is how limited many Canadians are in their ability to relocate," Mr. Calver said. The problem is that most drivers can only get a temporary one-year work permit, because driving is not considered a professional skill set, Mr. Calver said.
