Strategy & Operations » Governance » Financial Director: Celebrating 25 years

Our new
anniversary section
of our website is now ready. We will be adding
to this list throughout Financial Director’s anniversary year, so keep
an eye out for them by clicking on our
button on the homepage.

A special treat: very soon we will be republishing some of the best articles
from our very first issue, dated October 1984. We will let you know as soon as
it’s ready to download.

In the mean, time, we would love to hear from our most ‘experienced’ readers
about how the FD job has changed – or not! – since we launched in 1984.

As for our newer readers, we would value your views on whether you think
there are any lessons that these older articles can offer in this more turbulent

Whatever your background, sector or experience, you can share your views with
other readers by clicking on the “Have your say” link below or, if you prefer,
email me at

for our trip down memory lane – and some up-to-date analysis
