Towerco CFOs: the anchor to the vision and shepherd of growth
Managing the cost of capital, debt levels and internal rate of return critical to success
The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is critical to a company having the financial means to achieve its vision and plan. Working alongside the CEO, a towerco CFO is the main link to investors, banks, lenders, credit rating agencies, and shareholders, and the one in charge of accessing and retaining capital with the ultimate goal of optimising the cost of capital. Naturally, the role of the CFO as well as the options available to ensure financial stability varies depending on the country of operations, geographical risk, regulatory environment, scale and future plans of the towerco, ownership structure, current liquidity, and more.
