BOOK: Masters of Money: Strategies for Success from the CFOs of South Africa's Biggest Companies by KC Rottok Chesaina

The chief financial officer (CFO) of a company is critical to its success. In Masters of Money (Jonathan Ball), KC Rottok Chesaina, a chartered accountant and the founder of The African Professional magazine, interviewed 31 CFOs of leading South African companies to find out more about their strategies for success.

"Once we have scaled the corporate heights, made the money we were to make and held the positions we wanted to hold, it  will all boil down to whether we’ve made a difference to humanity or not," says the CFO of telecommunications giant MTN South Africa. "That’s what’s important; that’s what we should keep in mind in all our endeavours."
