On today’s episode, we talk to Jeff Fasoldt, the Chief Financial Officer of the DiMarco Group. He oversees corporate finance and accounting, asset management, human resources, IT, and marketing. He also provides oversight and direction across the DiMarco family of companies and manages their banking relationships. Jeff has over 30 years of professional experience across a wide variety of industries and is also an adjunct instructor of accounting at SUNY Geneseo.
CFOs spend much of their time focused on financial planning and analysis and typically report their findings directly to the senior leadership and management teams. Just as important to their role, however, is making sure every member of the organization understands the business’s long-term financial goals and communicating about plans to achieve those goals.
Jeff sheds light on how strong communication skills have led to his own professional growth and success. He shares the importance of continued learning beyond communicating face to face, and how to communicate on all the different platforms we use to engage today such as email, texting, instant messaging, social media, and virtual meetings. Jeff prides himself in being a mentor and sharing what he has learned with others to help them succeed in their careers, making this episode invaluable to all who listen.

Join us as we talk business transformation with CFO, David Bullwinkle, of Kodak. Leadership carries a heavier burden due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Leaders have had to quickly transition their business model while balancing digital transformation and reporting initiatives with building and leading resilient teams in preparation for what lies ahead. This, however, is nothing new for Kodak CFO David who has been pivoting and working to keep a 100-year-old company relevant for over a decade. No business survives over the long term without reinventing itself. But knowing exactly when the right time to undergo deliberate, strategic business transformation—that is, when to change a company or organization’s core product, service offerings or business model—is where the difficulty often lies. Business transformation typically requires overcoming big obstacles: Employees may feel threatened, customers can become confused, investors might not like unproven strategies. David Bullwinkle started with Kodak as an SEC Reporting Manager in 2004 and worked his way up to being named CFO and Senior VP in 2016. During this session, you will hear how David’s role as a financial leader has impacted Kodak through its many stages of transformation over the years.
