PCWorld interviews Broadsoft CFO

PCWorld recently interviewed Broadsoft CFO, James Tholen.

Tholen, who has been with Broadsoft for five years, got his start in the tech industry early. According to Tholen, “I just loved the ability for the entrepreneurial technology companies to change and disrupt an industry, to really change how things are done. For me, finance was a way to get to play in that tech sandbox.”

When asked about the biggest challenges facing CFOs at tech companies tofay, Tholen replied, “The regulatory and compliance requirements for public companies have just become bigger and bigger and more complex, and that creates challenges. The overlay is you’re trying to manage short-term and long-term growth in the company, but with the macro environment and challenges of how Wall Street looks at you and evaluates you.”
