You are more than just a “numbers person”. Your organization relies on you for financial analysis sure; but they trust that you are not just looking at the numbers but going beyond the numbers in giving them advice about industry trends, personnel, compensation and performance, the changing tax code and even new technology decisions. The advice you give is not just hunch, or even based on your broad understanding; when you make a recommendation, you’ve dug into the details and evaluated multiple solutions. They know that because you can explain your thinking in simple, straightforward language. You do that not just because you are obsessive, but also because that kind of detailed analysis is what keeps a company sailing in smooth waters!
