Ciaran Ryan / Pieter de Jager

Pieter de Jager of AfriSam’s Tanzanian division explains the challenges of the modern CFO. He spends less than 5% of his time on reporting and preparing financial accounts. A far greater amount of time is spent on corporate finance and funding, making sure the business has sufficient liquidity to compete. Tanga Cement contributes 30 – 40% of parent Afrisam’s business and the compliance requirements of being listed on the Tanzanian Stock Exchange occupies a considerable amount of his time. Pieter provides a fascinating window into the life of the modern CFO.
