What is a Controller?


A controller is still an accountant (at heart), meaning they have the educational background and perform some accounting functions, but they do not fill the role of an accountant (keeping and analyzing financial records). They’re taking on the larger role of overseeing a firm’s accounting department and use their expertise to influence the financial strategy of a company and keep its financial data in tip-top shape.
