PricewaterhouseCoopers’ US & UK offices released their 2019 Finance Effectiveness Benchmark Report, Your finance function is ready for change, are you?  The 37-page report is the culmination of a year-long effort led by PwC’s US and UK Directors of Finance Benchmarking: Ed Shapiro, Gavin Hildreth and Andrew McCorkell.  The report explores what sets top performing finance functions apart using PwC benchmark data from over 700 projects and interviews with dozens of international finance and business leaders.  The report also contains case studies describing finance function advances underway at leading international companies Devro,  Dixons Carphone, Elsevier, Grupon Colón Gerena, KAYAK, KPN, Leonardo, and the Royal Airforce of the UK.  Rexer Analytics has assisted PwC’s multinational team by conducting CFO interviews, data analysis, data graphics, and writing draft sections for their 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 Finance Effectiveness Benchmark Reports.  In July 2017 Ed Shapiro thanked the Rexer Analytics team:  “The support we got from Rexer Analytics was the glue that kept the project team moving forward.  You guys stayed on top of our challenging data and provided outstanding data analysis.  Your data graphics, CFO interviews, writing and proofreading were also invaluable.”  The 2017 Report is summarized on the Finance Effectiveness sections of the US PwC website and UK PwC website.  The full report is also available as a free download from each site.
